If you like to haggle when you shop, then this is for you. All kind of "authentic" stuff to buy here - mostly current name brand clothes. A large amount of tacky tourist stuff, and some cool stuff too. Be aware, there are "girly" bars around the outside of this market and the touts outside of them can get aggressive... More

We've been here twice during our trip. The place is quite crowded since there's alot to buy and explore. However, it is not advisable to tag along your kids especially some stores sell sex toys. On the other hand, we found a restaurant that is good for all, a shabu shabu style. Tip when you shop in this area, try... More

Patpong Night Market is a must when you are in Bangkok. You can get a wide range of products for sale, jewelry, watches, clothing, sunglasses and so much more. Anything you can think of, accessories, knock off products. Practice your bartering skills first, always offer half of the selling price and walk away if yhe vendors wont budge. Most of... More

The area around pat pong market is a strange mix of sex shows, bars and tourist market. The market itself is down the middle of pat pong road and along the pavement of the main road at the top , whilst the bars and sex shows are in the shops at the side of pat pong road. The market is... More

My boyfriend and I are staying in Bangkok for a few nights, last night we got a bit drunk and I remembered a friend of mine that we had to see a ping pong show in Patpong Market. From Khaosan Road it's about a 15 min TukTuk ride (300 bht). Upon arrival the first thing you notice is all the... More

Prior to my trip to Bangkok some friends who had been there before told me about the infamous Patpong neighborhood and I just had to see for myself. The market is okay, but they will price gauge so be relentless in your bargaining. Honestly, just go to the Chatuchak Weekend Market. What's funny is that the market consists of stalls... More

Patpong used to be the only private-owned road in Bangkok that made use of its status by self-regulated its usage of the road surface. When Patpong started in 1950, it was the street for all the prestige airlines and more eg. KLM, Air France, Qantas, JAL, even United States Information Services. Patpong evolved into the Thailand first night market in... More

We were looking for a close by night market to visit on our first night in Bangkok, unfortunately the concierge recommended Patpong. A 15 minute drive from Sukhumvit road, this trashy night market is full of stalls selling counterfit Michael Korrs bags, peddling working tasers and selfie-sticks. Besides this, there are an infinite number of seedy looking 'girlie bars' offering... More

This whole market area seems to be a tourist trap that sprung up around the areas infamous reputation for ping pong and sex shows. Honestly everything in the area seemed overpriced compared to other markets in the city. Even the beer at the bars in the area was relatively expensive. I'd heard it was worth a visit just to experience... More
