|Action Street Soi Buakhao Pattaya|
Soi Buakhao is a road sandwiched between Second and Third Roads connecting Central Pattaya Road to South Pattaya Road. There are a few entry points from the Second Road to get to Soi Buakhao. From Walking Street, a motor bike taxi to Soi Buakhao should cost 50 THB. This road has everything that Walking Street has, and more. Some new innovative "massage" establishments have also come up on Soi Buakhao. There are hotels - both expensive and cheap (starting 600 THB a night - Cheap Hotels in Pattaya), all types of food, all types of bars, and a dedicated entertainment ground called "Action Street". Yes, there are go-go bars even in Soi Buakhao that will turn away non-Farangs, particularly the ones on Soi LK Metro. It is possible that the Farangs who are not happy with the transformation of Walking Street have turned to Soi LK Metro for their fix. It will be interesting to see how long this street remains "exclusive".
Action Street Bars

Action Street has several bars with loud music, large screen TVs, and girls dancing on bar stands. Everyone is welcome in Action Street. No discrimination is practised here against any nationality. Better still, prices of everything here are less as compared to Walking Street. Lately, Action Street has lost some of its appeal due to the opening of many new clubs on Walking Street. There are still a few bars but one does not see so many ladies doing pole dance there now a days.
Off-season is the best
The ultimate tip for a non-Farang is to be in Pattaya during off-season months of July to early October. That is the time when supply is more than demand, prices of everything drop or are at least negotiable, quality of service is better, and Pattaya's entertainment market turns democratic to a large extent.
