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.”

Patpong is a Bangkok district well-known because of its spicy nightlife and its large number of lap-dance clubs, where you will be invited to enter by beautiful women. I did not experience the lap-dance clubs, but I liked the area because of a nice open air market where I bought nice things at very reasonable prices.

Well, a typical Asian night market. Probably not a place where you can win if you are from Western countries!! However, if you are an Asian, aware of the bargaining style and looking for bargain price, it is a must visit place. best for purchasing hand bags and Fotua (t-shirt). You have to walk the whole place 3 times from... More

Some kind of landmark of Bangkok. It is not bad if walking open minded. I mean the places around the market. But there are lot of things available, not genuine but still sometimes they have longlife, even better than those of the real brands. Huh ...

Went to queens II upstairs, 300 baht for 1 beer. I did not get ripped off for more but did see several fights with the staff and patrons so I did not even finish the most expensive beer I ever had in Thailand. Had to bail as soon as possible. I think they tried to charge people several thousand baht... More

The Patpong Night Market is a usual night market and nice to see. Of course there are the 'Ping Pong'-Show offers but they were not offensive when we were there. Good opportunity to shop clothes, watches and shoes

This place is open when all the other malls and stores shut. there is a huge variety of things available here. If something interests you can buy dont forget to bargain like crazy as shopkeepers are desperate to sell. Also some can be rude if u say we are looking. On the other side is a variety of ping pong... More

Your can get to this place by BTS - Sala Daeng station. It gets crowded so beware of pickpockets. There are many touting at you to watch the "Thai Girl" Sex Show, which can be quite irritating if you just want to shop. We didn't enjoy the night market here, as it is too sleazy and crowded. Not god to... More

Patpong 1 and Patpong 2. Located between Silom Road and Surawongse Road, Patpong 1 and Patpong 2 run alongside each other. However thankfully more and more visititors are coming to this area for shopping .The street stalls in the middle of the road offer just about everything you want – a really perfect place to pick up gifts for people...

This market is still lingering in history whereas the same areas across the world have organized and evolved. Pathetic flea market trying to rip you with filthy products and sky-rocketing prices. If you are bad at bargaining, you would return empty pocketed without any sensible purchase. The sleaze (gogo) exists, but so disorganized and shady that instead of enjoying the... More

Here's how the SCAM (or maybe "mugging" is a better term) works (for us we were at QUEENBAR on Patpong): You think you're going to enjoy a show. You buy some drinks and buy some of their girls some "Cokes" for 100 or 200 Baht. Fine. Then they hand you a bill for 4,400 Baht because you watched the show... More

Neighborhood Profile
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.
