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.”

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%! I would recommend...More

We visited the night bazaar and had an enjoyable time. At sunset hundreds of street stalls open up clothing, jewellery and souvenirs. The bars in the area are just average for food and drinks.

Entertaining to say the least... caters to all appetites. As to food... street or restaurant. Street is great restaurant a little more expensive but all very good. A good way to see the night life

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

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

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.
