It was a very lively, busy and exciting area. Good place to shop if you are looking for good imitations! The issue is that everyone tries to rip you off - they start prices high and within seconds are down by 50%!

Located on a small street with 4 rows of stalls. If you are close by it’s a nice market to visit but in my opinion it’s not worth going out of your way to get there.
Some of the stall owners are rides a bit...More
I don’t know why this market is so highly rated. There’s no food, the market is nothing to write home about, and generally a waste of time coming here.
The other night markets are waaaay better!
I also ate the worst pad Thai of my...More
We are staying in Silom area of Bangkok. One of the main 10 attractions listed on TripAdvisor is visiting Patpong night market.
As we approached the market, nicely dressed man kept asking we follow him upstarts to see ping pong show for 100 Thai bhat...More
My husband and I went to this market for the experience. If you are really interested in any of the products, you have to bargain. Start by counter-offering 60-70% off the asking price. Never had to pay more than 50% of the original asking price....More
I first visited this night market ~25 years ago and I have an impression that there're lots to see/buy/street food. Two days ago I came again, mainly for some street food and it is easy to reach by sky train (Sala Daeng). Apart from usual...More
You can get the same stuff at the BKM mall for half th eprice, and that way you don't have to see the sad & frankly openly bored girls at the bars half heart-idly trying to entice the punters, it may seem funny but you...More
My partner and I travelled to bangkok for my surgery, it was all a great experience apart from the last night, we both wanted to experience a ping pong show, you can’t visit without going to one, biggest mistake ever, got conned inside for free...More
Despite the lack of any major tourist attractions, this lively neighborhood is a favorite of many. Whether it's the (somewhat naughty) nightlife of Soi Patpong, the various handicraft night markets or the plethora of dining options that tickle your fancy, a night out in Silom is a must on every itinerary. It's worth a stop during daytime, too: join office workers on a quest to tasty street food during lunch and shop
at Silom Complex for a great mix of Thai and international stores. After a day of strolling around the congested sidewalks, a visit to Silom's Lumphini Park, Bangkok's answer to NYC's Central Park, is a welcome change of scenery.

Ladies of the night (1 Reply)
Maybe I should also have said "of the day". Protected usually by my wife and son, I have generally avoided the sleaze in SE Asia and though one has sat in a cafe in PatPong and watched fat balding middle aged European men in khaki shorts and greying vests with their stunning local girlfriends (and often unknowingly, "boy"friends) the nearest I have come to "women of easy virtue" is when I have been walking ahead some distance and inevitably have been accosted (Uusually in Vietnamese cities)...More

Hi lemniot, I am assured by good authority that the very attractive " lady of day or night" who accosts you on a motor bike is not necessarilly( almost certainly isn't)the lady you may imagine you are going to end up with!! Being a lone traveller , they give me a bad time at night!Age certainly does not appear to worry them --Your money is much more appealing! The good authority came from a more adventurous friend who quickly " abandoned ship"when he found out this was the situation! ...More

Insects/Bugs in Bangkok (3 Replies)
Hi guys, I'm trying to find markets or carts that sell insects/bugs in the day time (preferably ones that open between 3pm-5pm as I'll be visiting during that time period). Was wondering if anyone might have any suggestions, or if it's a market, where I can find it exactly? Had found some markets like Khao San or Patpong but I believe these markets only open in the late afternoon or evening time. Appreciate any help!

Top end of Sukhumvit Soi 4 outside Stumble Inn bar. Generally a stall there selling al the edible insects etc. Sets up late afternoon early evening.
