About
This long-standing market in Bangkok is a shopping haven for bargain hunters. Take a stroll through the alleys and marvel at all that's on offer—rolls of textiles, clothing and footwear, and even handmade crafts. There are even inexpensive laptops and cameras on offer for gadget lovers. Remember to brush up on some basic Thai phrases before you go—you might be surprised at the extra discounts or freebies you can score! Buying in bulk is often a lot cheaper too. It's a popular stop on many city tours and food tours of Bangkok, so go in the early afternoon when the shops are fully stocked. – Tripadvisor

    Cheap buys, mostly apparel
    Cheap buys ranging from THB50 and above. There are shops in the building winding in a spiral, then there are more outside along the streets. Most are wholesale where it gets cheaper when you buy more, but sometimes even for single piece, the prices are cheap too. Don't expect quality. Toilets in the building are decent (a little dim but reasonably clean), doesn't provide toilet paper though. Crowded, not for the claustrophobic.

    Good bargain market
    this market is so big that you can lost on it. The clothes are very cheap and is very good quality. That's why I'm not surprised when it is so crowded and congested with shoppers. The only thing is that it's too traffic to get there and I was a bit lost and it was at the end of the day so it was very tiring but when I get there just fine because I get to buy some really affordable clothes that I can bring home. This is highly recommended especially if you're buying wholesale.

    Good deals
    Normal bustling outdoor market, with better deals compared to the malls around it such as Platinum or Palladium malls. Highly recommended to go. Good number of shops selling Muslimah clothing as well.

    Heaven for shopaholic!
    The best place to buy clothes. Many clothing shops are there and a lot of design for man and woman. You can buy the latest design also but too crowded. And you will feel hot while shopping. Pro tip! Started buying from 3 pieces, if so you can get the wholesale price!

    Good mall and street shopping
    Good place to shop clothes and few toys. Indian restaurants available nearby in Indra market, just 700 mtrs away. Mall gets closed by 8 pm. Just cross the road of mall and there is Indra local street shopping. Good for wholesale shopping. If you are there for tour, must visit place. You can exchange money here also.

    Bangkok night market
    Pratunam Market is one of the busiest night market. We went to this market and it is nearer to the hotel we stayed. All types of items are available and we bought few dresses and gift items. We have to bargain and they are reducing little price.

DO go early in the morning like 6-7am. Cos the place can be very hot and stuffy.
This trip there didnt't really plan to do much shopping. but notice that items are getting more expensive and items are very much limited. Most of them selling the same items and many only prefer wholesale and will mark up double when you want to buy small quantity.

Oh this place is amazing, I was there 2 weeks ago and I still think about this market, everything is cheap. I'm going back I think tomorrow. For ladies who want to buy full lace wigs at affordable prices this is your place.

Pratunam market here Only cheap items Inside there is a shop selling beautiful patterns and general accessories. But rarely have food I went to buy 2 shirts. And walk to the red light intersection where there is food to shop for chicken rice Which tastes good It is greasy and eaten with rice and soup. Goes together very well, the price is cheap. I ate 2 dishes. Very full. You should go for a walk before eating. Otherwise you will have to pacify the stomach for sure.

Busy market all day and evening. Selling mostly clothing. In the day mostly wholesale so 3 items of the same to get cheap price. Has places to eat and street food . Only 1bar as far as I can see. Lots of Indians and Africans in this area. Can get crowded in the small alleys in the indoor market and very hot.

Both day and night this is buzzing with bargains. Can get hot during day so I did both day and night and nights are great with the street closed to traffic and vendors everywhere. Great bargains if you like to shop will all things available. Barter with them and you will get some goid buys.

We went around 5 pm, not so warm and it was walkable and easy to shop.
Enjoyed the lively environment.
Managed to get few good bargains.
Although the main market was already closed, we toured the stalls along the main road.
Enough to ignite the shopaholics in us.

Pratunam Market includes shopping complexes and maze of alleys. They are filled with thousands of tiny shops selling fashion wear and accessories in wholesale. Sometimes, the prices are cheaper than Chatuchak Weekend Market.

This mall is not what it used to be. Most of the goods are of poor quality and the prices are high, and there is nothing special to push you to visit the mall. The only good thing about the centre is that the taxi drivers offer good deal to visit the floating market, and the elephant ride trip is cheaper than my hotel in terms of Siam malls.

This seller here is very very rude I’ve ever met in Pratunam market. The price tag she put on the shirt is 250Bath and my husband ask for a large size she get it for him for a large size and ask for 450Bath. Then my husband just ask her and pointed to the price tag she put on the shirt which is just 250Bath. A sudden, this lady was very very rude grab aggressively away the shirt from my husband and said that is not the price she said that price is for the shirt on the button shelf, but each of the shirt on the button shelf have their own price. My question to the pratunam market management how do you suggest if your seller act to rude to the visitors like this. We just felt very uncomfortable with this market. I don’t mind to pay if the put the price tag on the shirt for 450Bath but look on the picture attached you can tell and that is the lady look like.
