We actually stumbled across Patpong Road night market after leaving Silom Complex, which is right across the road. We got there at 6/630pm and that was an interesting time to arrive as the stallholders were finishing their setting up - it's amazing how nice they can make a stall look when it's just wire and crates underneath. At this time... More

PATPONG night market has nothing great to offer. Bad quality copy of top brands (watches, bags and other stuff). Only go if you have time to waste, there are much better places to spend time in the eve in bangkok that patpong !

We visited the night market on our brief stop over in Bangkok. My husband picked up some watches which are fake but good fakes!! A great place if you enjoy the haggling process for trying to get the best price! Good fun

July 2013. Definitely not for kids - you get used to taking the children when on holiday but this a no no. I only went as friends had never been - I wish I hadn't. I had seen it 8 years earlier and it was a nightmare then but it has got a whole lot worse. Last time it was... More

First off there are a few inappropriate bars, clubs, and street salesman asking you to go to their ping pong shows on that road so taking children to that location might not always be the best choice!! THE VENDORS ARE VERY VERY RUDE!!!!!!!!!!! but we still went a few times for the merchandise they sell!!! They sellers ask for very... More

Night market with a lots of bar and club along the street. Actually this an adult entertainment area instead of a night market. Shopping is not recommended here cos the price is a bit expensive compare to other night market. If you want nightlife entertainment, this is the place.

We had a great time bartering with the vendors. As long as you offer about 1/3 of their starting price and don't budge you can walk away with some reasonably priced goods.

I only heard about the "famous" nightlife of Bangkok from movies, but it really exist. We didn't go inside the bars, because i heard so many stories that they trick the tourists as much as they can, so we just looked into the bars while we were walking around the market, and it's incredible that you can see many girls...

The nightlife experience here was great. However, the night market was a rip-off. I bought loads of stuff at this market. When I go over to Pratunam area, the prices of the same goods were much lower!! Go to Pratunam instead for your street shopping!

The sleaze and the sex is notorious but a trademark of the vicinity. So, its kinda ok. What's not ok are the highly marked up prices, rude vendors and the traffic. Still it's good for a browse around and perhaps a look into the insights of sleazy Bangkok which made it famous. Shopping experience is bad, so don't expect to... More
