Royal City Avenue - more commonly known as RCA - is the epicentre of Bangkok's clubbing scene and an officially designated nightlife zone so you can be assured of a party seven nights a week. Clubbing institutions like Route 66 and Slim are packed every night and, at weekends, they're rammed to capacity. There are so many options for visitors to RCA; enjoy international DJs, as well as live concerts and soundtracks by popular local artists all in one night. RCA is separated into four blocks: Block A is closest to Rama 9 Road, and, at the opposite end, Block D leads onto Petchaburi Road. RCA is too far from public transport to walk so it requires a taxi or motorcycle.

Khao San Road takes off at night: neon signs flicker into life, music begins blasting from streetside sound systems, while the masses begin mapping out the long, alcohol-soaked night in front of them.
And there's no shortage of choices. From the (relatively) upscale Silk Bar and Cinnamon, to the quiet tranquility of the back-alley Hippie de Bar, or the crude charms of a kerb-side cocktail shack complete with plastic stools and ghetto blaster, there's something to suit every mood, taste, budget and state of cleanliness. Some of the truly thrifty even opt to purchase beers from the local 7/11 and drink on the street, hobo style.
