SOI 7 & 8 GIRLS
The shear number of girls in this area is staggering! and combined, Soi 7 & 8 most likely has the largest number of available girls anywhere in Pattaya. With most of the bars open to the elements, alot of the girls there prefer the open bar layout that is far less claustrophobic than many other bar street plans of other Soi’s and gives the girls the chance to run around and be more happy and playful.
SOI 7 & 8 LADYBOYS
While there are ladyboys and ladyboy bars in Soi 7 & 8, their numbers are relatively low and they are far less aggressive and active around the area’s where they work and are much less menacing to those who just want to pass by unhindered, as opposed to other area’s in pattaya like Soi 6.

SOI 7 & 8 BARS AND A GO-GO’S
Most of the bars around Soi 7 & 8 have an open plan layout, meaning that they are not enclosed and have no air-conditioning, just a series of wall fans blowing air around, which is a big part of what gives the area it charm. But in recent years, in an effort to move with the times, many venues are moving to sealing their bars with plate glass windows, and air-conditioning the premises in an effort to draw party goers back to they’re bars away from the humidity.
A Go-Go’s in Soi 7 & 8 are old school, the way we like em! with “Silver Star A Go Go”, Soi 7 my personal favourite, lots of girls and a big bath tub in the middle of the room where lots of girls hop in and soap up for the viewing entertainment of the patrons.

High season & Low season in Soi 7 and 8 aren’t much different, in regards as to what goes on here, it’s basically just the scale of things that changes, with the absence of large numbers of tourist and holiday makers during Low Season, a lot of girls go back home to the village during Low season and the ranks start to thin out in Soi 7 and 8. Some of the beer bars in low season go from having 20 bar girls to just 2 or so.
