Top ways to experience Patpong Night Market and similar attractions

The area
Neighbourhood: Silom
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.

Unique night Shopping in Patpong. Nice!
Dec 2020
Patpong's picturesque and colorful Market has become one of the must' night shopping destinations for foreign tourists who want shopping, find souvenirs, gifts, typical Thai at a cheap price. Patpong is a place that characterizes Bangkok, recommended to visit.
Many guys will try to bring you into the Go-Go Bars (sex clubs) where the girls who play the "ping pong"(stunts in the nude)...not for everybody. My advice, bring just cash and no wallet.

Famous night markets

I haven’t been for a few months, but just thought I’d detail my last visit. For locals, it’s really not a great place. But for locals just passing through it might be more fun. Quite seedy and lots of knock off merchandise. It’s busy and bustling and not great value for money in local terms.

Not my favourite market in Bangkok. This market seem s like many others. They have lots of souvenirs and knock off products. It also has adult entertainment. This is a place I kept an extra eye on my belongings. You will get plenty of offer to ping pong shows, massages and stripping. I did not stay long here. There are plenty of markets in Bangkok without the adult entertainment hassle

Interesting market
Aug 2019
Patpong doesn't have a good reputation in terms of tourist area; however, it's a good idea to have a look browsing through the market.
Most of the shops sell almost the same things, from clothing (replica) to home decor, with local street food, pubs and showbiz bars.
You might like it or hate it!

Knock off speciality market
Aug 2019
If you're in Bangkok and want to get some gifts to take home, this is a good market to go to. It's really convenient for the central hotels. Great brands at ultra low prices but be prepared to haggle. It's all knock off but at the prices on offer, who cares? Don't get sucked into the clubs, they're just not worth it.

Always good to see but just be cautious as a lot of pick pocket. Stay away from all ping pong shows as they are just a scam. If it's a drink you want grab a beer from the open bars or 7/11. Some good copy items but make sure you barter as the put their price up extremely. A tee shirt wi start at 700 baht but you will most likely get it for 200 to 250 baht as with many of the other things. Good copy watches and bags. The street around are also fun to walk through. Just be cautious.

Not cheap
Jan 2020
Bright lights and many T shirts, but seemed to be the same old things I had seen a hundred times before, but at higher prices. Did better on Silom Road itself. An experience, but not for shopping

Don’t go to the ping pong shows!
Mar 2020 • Couples
Me and my boyfriend decided to go to a ping pong show with another couple we met on our trip. We heard it was a really popular show to see! So a man outside said the price would be 100 baht for entry with a drink for this price too.
So in we went, we confirmed with the man that it would only be 100 baht each, and we also confirmed with the 2 waitresses. So we watched the show, which was extremely odd, the women with no smiles on their faces, just wish we never went.
The second we finished our drinks we were all escorted to behind the bar, I gave my 200 baht straight over. All of a sudden about 8 butch ladies appeared and kicked off as we needed to apparently pay 1000 baht each! I was so fuming. The other couple that we went with were trying to stand their ground, but the girl burst into tears, and the butch lady hit her on the chest and was pushing her into the wall! The lady was shouting at my friend, and told her to go up on stage and do what they do! Such an unpleasant experience which I never want to encounter again.
So I actually didn’t have this amount in my purse, and she took all the money out of my purse and took me downstairs to an ATM. I wasn’t allowed to go alone and nobody was allowed to come with me! It was horrible, I was shaking. I came back up and she snatched the money out of my hands! They were so nasty and shouting so loudly. Pushing and shoving. I never want to be in that situation ever again. Horrible people. Because they actually took more money out of my purse, in currently down £70 after that horrible evening.

Late Night Madness and Every Bit of Tourist Tatt You Could Wish For
Apr 2019
Whatever brings you to Patpong in the evening it's hard to miss the night market; and if you do come to Patpong for the night market be sure to take in the area. It's all here...every tourist souvenir you could ever dream of...and it's all yours...if you barter for it. Take it with a pinch of salt and enjoy.
