Avoid this place at all costs, if you are thinking about seeing a ping pong show prepare because they will try to rip you off, is best if you go with only a small amount of cash in the wallet. I was with my girlfriend and we were looking at the market witch has a lot of things but a... More

Great atmosphere...but you really got to be sensible to stay safe, don't go inside bars and don't touch stuff on market if you've no intention of buying, great street bars and really good prices

Just to clarify, there is Patpong 1 and Patpong 2. One area has the night market where they sell fake goods. It is surrounded by seedy ping pong show places where someone is trying to get you to come watch a show. They will tell you it's only $5, but then take you inside and scam you and stick you... More

Patpong Night Market can be reached by travelling through from BTS Siam station, depart at Sala Daeng station and exit down one of the right-hand stairs. Follow the increasing trail of vendors along the sidewalk, and after five minutes it is night market. After recently cleaning up its act, Patpong's become one of the 'must' night shopping destinations for avid... More

Patpong is (in)famous for one thing - the sleazy Ping-Pong etc. shows. These places are designed to fleece you for your money despite claims you can just look or just buy a drink. And the market offers nothing that you cannot get elsewhere in Bangkok for much less - again they are just trying to rip you off. A brief... More

Thank goodness we found this after dinner one night because MBK market we were waiting for was only Monday nights! This market is divided into rows and a lot of them sell similar stuff but that means you can bargain and walk away and negotiate elsewhere! We were so glad to find this market!! We got bags, souvenirs, singlet tops,... More

Everything is fake. Sunglasses, watches, luggage. You know it's fake, you haggle, you get your price and then later the bought object doesn't work or breaks...

Go to one of these markets before shopping at any centre like MBK as you will get the same stuff cheaper but they don't have the variety. They weren't properly set up till 10pm but some stalls open earlier. A lot of the same knock off items as else where but its worth a look. Plenty of street food stalls... More
