Its many years since we visited Patpong market and the experience can best be described as sordid. Its is amazing, how in a few strides you leave the modern shopping mall area around Sala Daeng and enter the sleazy red light district. The night market stalls now cover part of the main Silom Road as well as the short Patpong... More

By day a street that runs between Silom Rd. and Surawong Rd. At night a tourist junk market. No matter what advice I give here, people come to Thailand to buy knockoff junk, that will break, wear out or fall apart within a few weeks of getting back home. I live a stones throw from this market, and everyday I... More

Personally I believe there are far better places in Bangkok to go shopping. You can find a wide variety of fake products in this market. However, it is worth a visit, and if you do want to buy something there, don't forget to bargain. One annoying thing about the place is the ping pong show sellers who keep asking you... More

Lots of fake or pirated bags/clothes/shoes are sold here. You can also find some stalls selling sex toys. Nothing much to see at this market, but it's near to bangkok's redlight areas.

Almost everything can be copied, is copied and sold here.. market is good with usual tourist stuff like T-shirts, watch replicas, sun-shades, travels bags.. Bargaining is not just an art but the way of shopping here.. Usual quote for a Tee would be at least 3-4 times higher than what you would or should pay.. But then marketers expect you... More

Since we are in the area..extended our shopping day to the night market.. something which we haven't done for a long time. Got some copy stuff.. at a very good price. Having a local friend is an advantage, haggling is their game. To cap the night..went on to a bar resto right on the road.. the weather was nice..good music..good... More

Took Skytrain to Sala Daeng for the night market. Walked along shops after shops, but what they sold was not very thai. Only a few shops these actually sell thai decorations. The rest consist of counterfit brands, tee shirts, power banks… etc.

The market is on silom,, very central. They sell mostly clothes there, but also other things, like a lot of suitcases. I personally don't like this market too much, because the prices they ask for are very high, because manly tourist come here. Also on both sides of the market there are strip clubs, and they constantly try to make... More
