Monsoon @ Bangla Road - Phuket Thailand

ABBEY: We were at Bangla road checking bars that we can crash on and we stopped by at Monsoon. It was a bit different because the bar has live band and no pole dancers.  

Unlike the other hangouts where they offer sports channels or other "live" shows, Monsoon is for the music-lovers. You can request for a song, dance on the floor and be greeted by the performers it is your birthday. 

If you're looking for a slight wholesome place, this is it. A tip for the customers: food can be ordered until 11pm. Beyond that, drinks only up to closing.

WILL: Maybe you will choose a night flight from Singapore to Phuket and to not waste time waiting for the next day, maybe you may want to explore The Bangla Road. 

Bangla Road is very famous red light district in the world. So what would you expect here? Drunk men, girls dancing at the pole, and people offering private shows. 

We walked and walked and walked to find place to sit in. Finally! We heard a loud live band. We entered at Monsoon. We take our seats and ordered my usual...Margarita. 

The band is so lively and sang music that hit the crowd big time. After finishing my 2 drinks, around 3am of Singapore time, we headed back to our hotel to get ready for the next day adventure. 

If you want to sit back and relax just go here in Monsoon. Very recommendable.
