Markets are not that great. Stay well away from the guys trying to drag you into a ping pong or sex show its a big scam. The girls are fat and old. They will say it costs only 100 bhat per person but they will give you a bill for 3800 baht. You will then be surrounded by a very... More

I came with my family few years back to visit this night market. At that time, I found it fun able to haggle prices with the stall holders and had a sense of euphoria and satisfaction when the negotiated price was 40% less than the original offered price. . This time I was on an official trip and I was... More

I'm afraid no other word would describe the area . Disgustingly filthy; rats, cockroaches. Everything is fake.

Went to patpong market to see the sights and do a bit of shopping. First the Tuk tuk drivers want to rip you off to get there , when you get there there is the same stalls selling the same stuff as else where in Thailand. Both sides of the street are filled with girly bars offering ping pong shows... More

They are almost thief. Specially ping pong show and sexy show. first they tell you a low price. after the show you will find yourself surrounded by some big guys asking for huge amount of money ( 20 times more than the first price) Leave this place and go to pattaya to watch sexy show.

Patpong night market is same like other night markets. It is hot and you can find lots of bar there. And most of the bars you can find group of girls (i'm not sure whether they are real girls) performing on the stage. So, nothing special about the night markets. But across the road, we found lots of food stalls.... More

Worth visiting at night, combined with a stroll down Silom Rd and the various Soi's that branch off. Lots of little stalls selling various bits and pieces, much like any other night market, but worth seeing to soak in the busy and vibrant atmosphere. There are touts everywhere selling ping pong shows and various other things, but obviously just politely... More

My wife and I felt like doing some people watching at the infamous "largest adult playground" Nana Plaza. We took up a bar seat on the street outside "Bubbles" and although the beers were 150 Baht each, we had fun watching the activities. A friend had said go see a "ping pong" show when in Bangkok. I asked our waitress... More

The stalls are built on the pathways so it is difficult to get around. They mainly sell clothing and is close to many screaming bars. Nice to see the street food restaurants, they make pretty good meals. Besides that, nothing special. Bangkok offers nicer markets.
