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.”

I remember when there was no market. There were a few vendors then the owners realized how much they could make renting the space and it snowballed. You can buy authentic? (looking) bags watches clothes etc. Be prepared to bargain and dont forget to smile. You can get a good meal for a bargain or pay too much depending where... More

Nice place for bags and t-shirts kind stuff. Seems like expenses but you need to bargain much to meet your targeted budgets. 😊

Many of the stalls sold same goods so not much variety overall and vendors not willing to move from their starting price. Prices too expensive, they thought they were selling genuine articles, we knew better !!!! Good to cross off our list but wouldnt recommend to anyone as a "must see" location.

If you're going to Thailand for the first time, this is a great place to go if you want an idea of Thai nightlife, in a small area. There are things to eat, items to hassle with to buy, get a tattoo, get a piece of artwork or even go to an adult nightclub. FAMILIES, DO NOT BRING YOUR CHILDREN!!

This is a nice outdoor market, and while it's not nearly as big at Chatachuk Market, it's a late night market with tons of souvenirs, crafts, knock of handbags, shoes, and clothes. The biggest downfall is the area; there are older men (and women) literally begging you to step inside one of MANY "ping pong shows" that edge the street... More

I've found it too expensive and a real tourist trap. The best shopping i've done was in Pratunam Market.

Our visit to the Patpong market wasn't necessary pleasant, but it was definitely interesting. Firstly, surrounding the market are hundreds of go go bars so you'll be bombarded by people selling ping pong shows. The products at the market are very nice and affordable but the vendors are so rude. They told us not to ask the price if we're... More

OK you can't visit Bangkok without going to see what all the fuss is about in Patpong. Some of the streets have lively bars which are good fun and reasonably priced. If you are not open minded then don't go there and judge others. The market stalls are pretty good and everything is negotiable so never accept first or even... More

We walked about 30 min from our hotel here and was very disappointed on arrival. This is a spot for tourists to be preyed upon. Pushy vendors selling poor quality goods. A lot of knock offs. If you are looking for knock off stuff, go to MBK center. Don't waste your time with this one.

Can reach there in 5min walk from Sala Daeng BTS. Its an average place for shopping. You have to bargain to reduce the price from 50 to 70 % to get the best price. Personally i don't recommend this Market. Chatuchak Market on weekend morning it the best for shopping.

Staying in Silom

Neighborhood Profile
Silom
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.
