You haven’t been to Pattaya if you haven’t visited at least a couple of Go Go Bars. Even though Thailand’s hip beach town 160 km southeast of Bangkok more and more becomes a family retreat, the red light districts with go go bars, beer bars, soapy massage parlors and ladyboy cabaret shows are all over …
