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.”

Great night market with lots of stalls but be ready to shop around and barter for a bargain. Lots of sights around the area too!

We had wonderful street food in the market - quite fresh. A huge variety of beers and coctails. The endless sex workers trying to hustle for attention can become a bit too much. Plenty of shows that cater for everybody's tastes on offer. Shops open with plenty of knock offs. Bargain hard, and walk away if the deal does not... More

A lively and buying place, definitely worth a visit, the market sells a wide variety of merchandise but do not take their first price. The traders will try to get as much from you as they can, e.g. high waisted elasticated elephant / genie pants can start from as much as 1,000 baht but if you are aware that catering... More

4 of us were on Patpong Rd looking at the markets. We decided to go to a bar for a ping pong show. We were told that it would cost us 100b each for a beer. We went to the bar, which was pretty bad. We had one beer each, watched some girls on stage and then asked for the... More

It is great place to visit in Bangkok. Typical street market. Can buy anything, striptease clubs on every corner,bars... It is ok to visit and have a good time but be careful for scams. Negotiations are normal thing to do just everywhere. Specially be aware of ping pong and strip bars. They invite you for free and than they charge... More

Patpong Night Market is definitely an experience and one you won't forget. On every corner there will be someone desperately trying to get you into their bar or into to see their show.If you don't want to go in, stand your ground! Don't be fooled by the 'no entrance fee' and 'just buy one drink' line- you will be encouraged... More

Lovely place to do your shopping but you must be prepared to bargain hard with the sellers as some of them just wont budge. You will find good quality knock-off T-shirts, rolex watches to name a few. Its lots of fun!!!

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.
