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.”

Busy, crowdy but still worth a visit

Even though it's crowdy, busy, and with harassment it's worth to pay a visit even if you're not out for shopping all kind of fake products. Here you will come across all kind of... read more

These markets sell the classic Thailand souvenirs and if you stand your ground and haggle you should get them for a decent price. If you don't, move on, there will probably be another stall just down the road. It's good fun if you're in the mood, but there's a row of bars down one side that looks like strip clubs... More

We went here to see a ping pong show. I had read warnings of how they try to rip you off inside. We were told outside it was definitely only 150baht each which was the value of one drink. Of course that is cheap. However he assured us that was all we would have to pay. We reduced our 300... More

This place will provide a different kind of experience to your Bangkok trip. This is definitely not the best place for shopping in Bangkok as the quality of products aren't up to the mark. However, it's a fun place to visit even if you're not into shopping. It's a busy, lively and vibrant place where you will come across all... More

On our visit to Bangkok we were recommended to visit this night market. What an eye opener !. If you are looking for copy or fake goods, this is certainly the place to go to. This almost all that the stalls sell. Either side of these is lined with bars with "Lady boys" and what we assumed to be lap... More

Some nice stalls here with great items to shop for, but you will be harassed a lot about the erotic clubs. That is quite annoying. They are trying to get you inside the club no matter what. I don't have to visit this place again.

There are three types of visitors to the Patpong night market area, those visiting the shady go go bars, those buying fake merchandise (DVDs, t shirts, fake watches etc) and those just curious and looking around. The fake stuff is not good quality anyway.

Patpong is a "bargain" market. Besides the main street being filled with vendors, you can also find vendors on the side walks of Silom street. Vendors in the side street somehow gives better price range :). The price they tell you is usually double the original selling price (these are my observation as compared to chatuchak) so you need to... More

We always stay at silom & hence never fail to visit the street stalls here. Appears to have lesser people nowadays... Many street food here too. Nonetheless, the foot & body massages are good & relaxing.

Staying in Silom

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.
