    Patpong Night Market: Worth a wander around

    by traceyspacey Written Nov 3, 2007

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    If you are in the area it is worth having a look here. Have a wander around before you buy the first thing that you see and remember to haggle. The main things that seem to be sold here are belts, men's T-shirts, fake Tiffany jewelry and bags.

    What to buy: What do you need!

    What to pay: My boyfriend paid 350B for a leather belt. Did he pay too much maybe. Better price than 1500B that was first quoted.

  • Patpong Night Market: Good for browsing only

    There's nothing much of interest in Patpong itself. The market is crowded and things are overpriced. I prefer browsing at the night stalls along Silom Road.

    Location: Patpong 1 and Patpong 2 Road

    Getting there:
    1) BTS - Saladaeng station
    2) MRT - Silom station

    Tips:
    Slash at least 60% off the calculator price!

    Patpong in Silom: Night market... night club

    by Chrystalain Written Jan 20, 2005

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    You can find clothes, as well as jewel and other souvenirs. You will also be offered for "banana show" and "ping pong show"... Personnally, I am not fond of these kind of show...

    What to buy: Clothes, jewels, DVD, silk, etc.

    What to pay: Again, bargain and be carefull!

    street: knock offs

    by Craig.White Written Sep 26, 2004

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Indian and Chinese markets are giving the best rate for the knock off items people take home (LV, Rolex, Prada...). If you are getting things at Patpong, you aren't getting the best or cheaply. If you look around and see loads of tourists, like yourself, you're stuffed. Still, its a good time, but if you want to pick up some class III copies of Rolexes or some good cheap reproductions of LV bags, get out into the little chinatown/india markets and hunt there.

    What to pay: Polo shirts = 3-4 Euros
    Rolex class I = 10-20 Euros
    Rolex class II = 20-30 Euros
    Rolex class III = 70-150Euros

    LV bags = 10 - 100 Euros (size matters)

    Patpong Night Market: Patpong Night Market

    Besides being a famous place for "you knoww what", this place offers great shopping experience and food fun-fare!

    By now, you'll realise that what I said it true..That you can go to any market and you can get most of the stuffs....Probably the choice or pattern of choice might differ...

    I bought lotsa t-shirts here..Pretty cheap, around B$10 to B$20 only. Nice prints and its still lasting me till today. :)

    Patpong Night Market: Patpong is Now Gentrified Somewhat (2)

    This will be part two my Patpong Night Market Tips with more pictures of the night market , I will have a separate Tips for the Patpong Night Life at Patpong and at the other areas of Patpong in Silom hehhehe.

    Due to the Bad Rap that Patpong is getting due to it's notoriety as a most famous red light district of Bangkok (the other red light districts are less known but more known to expatriates). The government decided in the late 1990' to gentrify the area by introducing a night market in the street lining Patpong 1 and also at the Adjacent areas of Patpong 2, 3, and 4 streets and it is now a bustling nightmarket that starts to open at 6:00 pm and ends at 1:00 am the next day and that these nightmarket stands side by side with the girly bars and the decent bars of the patpong area! they offer all the assorted trinkets, fake branded goods, pirated videos and computer programs, bags, shirts and other stuffs that you can see in other night markets in other areas of bangkok and also at the usual shopping areas of Chatuchak, Pratunam, Siam Square, MBK, Nana, etc.

    What to buy: all the assorted trinkets, pirated videos, counterfeit computer programs, shirts, leather goods, wallets, kitschy stuff, etc, that you can think of.

    What to pay: depends on your haglling skills! like in other markets and night markets in Bangkok, the Patpong Nigh market stalls have no fix prices on goods so that haggling is expected. try to knock offf at leat 150% t0 200% off the price as they usually jack up the price up to 200% for farangs!

    PATPONG NIGHT MARKET

    With its great selection of pubs, clubs and bars, Silom rarely disappoints the party crowd. Alongside a cramped but creatively stocked night market (think bootleg DVDs, tourist trinkets, T-shirts, fake watches).

  • Patpong Night Market: Beaware, the people who call you to see sex

    by frustrateduserindia Written May 31, 2012

    Please ignore the people, who call you for bar/sex shows and bars at pingpong market,
    I had very very frustrated exprience, one person called us we have been there we bought only one beer and coke, when we entered he told 50 bath each. After 15 min he started asking 2600 bath.

    They were man handled us, at last we pay 400 bath and came from there. I can not express how furstrated that is. In that bar no customers were there, we are only two. So it means these people calls customer to loot them.

    It is a crime, but we are outsiders for this country, we can not do . We are the tourist if they start doing like this, one day will come there would be no tourist at Bangkok.

    Please people of bangkok, do not think that tourist are coming, that does not mean they are only coming for sex here.

    This is big bull ***tttttttttttttt.. Beaware

    Patpong Night Market: Night Shopping with extras

    by nattybabe Written Jun 19, 2007

    I went down to the Patpong night market as soon as I arrived in Bangkok (I only had 24 hours to shop!). I found a fun and lively market selling asbolutely EVERYTHING. As I found out later, everything is expensive even with hard bargaining but the atmosphere is fantastic and the night hours are convenient for someone like me who was only there for a short time.

    Examples of stuff on offer are:
    fake everything eg purses, bags, watches, sunnies, and shoes
    clothes galore - both tradition and western
    CDs and DVDs (burnt)
    Toys

    If you want bargains go somewhere else, but if you want a great night out where there's the opportunity to stop for a beer or a ping pong show then this is your place!!

    Patpong

    Patpong

    Although known as a red-light district Patpong has a very large tourist market. This is a nice place to pick up souvenirs at reasonable prices.
