Soi 7 Photos (Part 1)
This is the first page of this tour. If you
have arrived here you may like to go back to the introductory
page of the Soi 7 and 8
tour for some information on this area.
This page starts the tour a little to the
south of Soi 8 on Beach Road. Beach Road is a very busy one-way
Road that can be difficult to cross at times. As the name
suggest it runs parallel to Pattaya Beach which is not visible
in this tour. In the area around Soi 7 and 8 there are many
bars on Beach road including gogos and live music bars.
The photo below shows the entrance to Soi 8
and some of the bars in the area.
Here it is a little closer. There are many
hotels in that soi including the popular Flipper Lodge for
which you can see the sign.
A little past Soi 8 is the World
Wide Bar and a gogo with the same name. World Wide Bar is one
of the live music bars in the area. There is also a small soi
running down the side of this bar that contains a number of
small bars. The L-shaped soi ends on Soi 8
Here is a closer look at that soi.
Same area again looking in the other direction.
The bars continue on past Soi 7 until Central Pattaya
The junction of Soi 7 and Beach Road and the bars near
Looking into Soi 7 from the junction of
Beach Road. The sign with 'DFINGERS' on it is for a ladyboy
gogo called Goldfinger.
Other than bars and restaurants there are a few other
types of businesses in the area.
Silver Star 2 is one of the gogo bars on Soi
7. There is also a gogo bar called Silver Star Agogo
on Soi 8 and one on Walking Street .
There are a number of beer bar complexes on Soi 7.
Most of the bars are very quiet during the day-time.
However, there is always some activity in the area.
Some of the complexes contain a fair number of bars.
Amazing Paradise is one of the larger Bars on Soi 7. It is
worth checking out.
This scene looks very different at night.
make sure you check out the Pattaya Night Photos section to get
an idea of what Soi 7 is like at night.
This photo looks back towards Beach Road.
There are two sois that join Soi 7 and Central road this is
the first of them.
It is lined with many small beer bars
There is even a combined doctor and dentist surgery.
The next photo looks back towards Soi 7 from near Pattaya
Back onto Soi 7 and another beer bar complex.
The Eagle bar is on of the bars that is busy
during the day. This particular day they were getting ready for
a party that night. Nearly every night at least one bar in the
area has a party. Generally this means balloons are put up and
free food is offered. Sometimes live music is provided. In most
cases the parties are paid by customers. If you find yourself
at a party and have a meal it is a good idea to at least thank
the host of the party.
Even though Soi 7 (and Soi 8) is a one-way
street be careful as you will see traffic going in both
directions. Especially the motorbikes.
