Patpong Night Market in Bangkok

Bangkok Night Shopping Hot Spot

    Patpong Night Market is one of the must-do night shopping destinations in Bangkok for avid shoppers. Found in the built-up area known as Silom, the place is always busy and chaotic with all the commotion from the go-go bars nearby and lots of foreign visitors. This market in Bangkok's notorious nightlife district is often the first and easiest stop for many who’ve just arrived in Bangkok and lodging at one of several mid-to-upper-end hotels in Silom.

    You will find fashion, souvenirs, and kitsch items here, mostly at bargain prices...as long as you know how to bargain and don't except the first price quoted. Be wary of the quality and prices of most items sold here, though. Both the market and go-go bars seem to complement each other well. But as with both, remember not to be fooled by first impressions and to bargain hard.

    To get to Patpong Night Market if you're coming from BTS Siam station, alight at Sala Daeng station and exit down one of the right-hand stairs. Follow the increasing trail of vendors along the sidewalk. You'll reach the market after 5 minutes.
