With the giant neon signs of the massive Go Go bars all around, Cockatoo Go-Go Bar is easily overlooked and passersby often miss it.Some of them are large and in good condition with very pretty 'ladies' and some others are very rundown and the ladyboys are a lot less feminine.Overall it was a constructive investigation as most ladyboys speak pretty good English and can have a fun conversation, which is rarely the case in normal Go Go bars.All of the twelve to fifteen girls on stage or keeping customers company are really pretty - definitely above average -with many of the attributes you can expect from ladyboys: tall, slim and curvier than most real girls, wearing perfect make up and attire (well, it's quite minimal).On average they speak good to excellent English and unlike 'normal' bars, you can actually have a fun and entertaining conversation, much beyond the usual "Whasss you name? " which in normal bar would usually be followed by a long silence during which you are trying to find another simple question.'Ladyboys' here are surprisingly educated and not pushy, and it is recommended to buy a lady drink if you expect your new friend to keep you company.The room at King Castle 3 is a bit smaller than average by Patpong standards but accommodates a large 'L' shape lit stage for 10 girls who happen to dance a lot better than in most girls in go go bars.If you too are curious, know that anyone is welcome and none of the bars rip guests off on the drink prices.
So go and have a look for yourself, it's easy going!
King Castle 3 is definitely the best ladyboy bar in Patpong and if you come unaware of the nature of the bar, you probably would be fooled.
Beers are just 120 baht, lady drinks start at 100 baht and for those who wonder, all girls have already become 'girls'(read between the lines).
Cockatoo is a bright and welcoming little ladyboy bar on Soi Cowboy and very popular with Japanese visitors who call ladyboys 'New Half'.
By popular demand, we had no choice but to do our homework and explore through the hot nights of Bangkok for the best Ladyboy Bars in town.We actually found quite a few: five in Nana Plaza, one in Soi Cowboy and a couple in Patpong, but after visiting them all here is the verdict.
