In the evening, this lively market is a great place to shop for souvenirs, fake brand name items and cheap goods and to visit Bangkok’s infamous “adult entertainment area.”

We had a fun night walking around the markets selling fake watches, T-shirts, belts, and alleys etc. Got hassled by a lot of 'wanna see ping pong show?' touts. Ignored them. Had a... read more

Not one for imitation watches or handbags, however the atmosphere, bars, restaurants and people make it worth going for to the Bazar. We caught a river bus (which is free), pick-up points all along the river. We stayed at the Sheraton, which has its own complimentary river bus; but it was great to get on a local river bus and...

Really enjoyed this market - we ended up going back again within 2 days Be aware that they will start off with a ridiculously high price - be light hearted about it and do not take it personally. You will walk away with a price that is at least half of what they asked initially if you are firm and... More

Patpong is a good place to visit at night (especially because other markets close earlier..).. You can buy stuff from kiosks and shops all around but be sure to bargin..if u buy in bulk, the shopkeepers discount an easy 10% off the item..but be sure that you bargin for 20-40 % price for most products..

We had a fun night walking around the markets selling fake watches, T-shirts, belts, and alleys etc. Got hassled by a lot of 'wanna see ping pong show?' touts. Ignored them. Had a few drinks and a bite to eat and watched people go by. Sat in a strip joint and watched bored girls gyrate. Fun night, but perhaps not... More

It is always good to bring first-times visitor here, showing the night market and bars around here. The girls will wow at the skimpy girls on bar-top, so will the guys. Just take BTS and follow the exit signs or look for street hawkers and you will be at the right side. Alternatively, just follow single or group of foreigners,... More

Don't let the description of market confuse you. This is in all senses a meat market... the caveat is it's a human meat market.. if you want to get down and dirty this is the place for you. But if you want to buy trinkets to take home for family and friends, stay on the main streets and buy them... More
