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.”

Just like every other market in Thailand with the added 'bonus' of lots of empty massage parlours trying to entice you inside - even our 15 year old son. One to miss.

visited there as it was the nearest night market to our hotel, however great disappointment as the area is just not an ordinary night market but an area that provide special requirement that you know what it is, if you thought of shopping just forget about this place.

We went there for "old times sake" yet were disappointed by the level of market/stalls that are presented nowadays. It is a red light district with some verdors selling clothes, watches, caps and so on. Spent there 10 minutes which was more than enough. There are better places in Bnagkok!!!

Patpong 1 is a street with many stalls selling about the same stuff - t shirts, watches, handicrafts, dvd. There are some shops by the side of the street. Nice to look around but be sure to bargain as that is part of the experience. There are quite a lot of people peddling ping pong shows. Patpong 2 has many... More

It was good shopping experience. The place has souvenirs, clothes , shoes, watches and almost everything. Most of them are copies of the original brands. You need to have good bargain skills to strike a good deal. There are many bars and massage parlours along the market.

I've visited this market a few times through the years. It could be a great place to bargain/shop in the grand air. I think that the vendors need to change their attitude toward the CUSTOMERS / TOURISTS. We have the right not to buy. Some of the vendors have a negative attitude when we don't buy. I repeat some ....... More

In the old red-light district but hey, that's what Bangkok is know for. Great markets with the usual copy of everything and lots of it - polo, watches, handbags, dvd's etc etc.. Only down side is that they are a bit cramped in. Expect to be offered entry to shows of all types by the neighbouring bars, but again, that's... More

Our tuk tuk dropped us off at Patong and we walked up the first street but soon realised that we were walking up the Gay street. That was an experience for our teenage boys! Their eyes were nearly popping out of their heads! Back on track and in to Patpong market and it was pretty similar but young girls everywhere... More

Watch out for the shady characters trying to lure you into their nightclubs/shows.Make sure you don't pay anymore than the first agreed price for the drinks
