  • In a market where the company cannot find a location, the company has been asking people to find a traditional market, a second-hand market under the Iron House, and all the stuff is very cheap, almost no light, and most of the people

  • The clothes are awful and out of date !! The street is so crowded and nothing to buy!! I don't want to come back again  more »
  • Best buy summer clothes and souvenirs to buy! Slightly younger design students there is, but anyway I think ought to go because it was often cheaper and more! Was the 4th floor, entered from the entrance next to the Prince Palace Hotel? This is where there is a large food court, where you can enjoy variety eaten since this morning.

  • There is a morning market in this place starting at 1.00 am. There is a huge amount of clothes specially for women and children. Hundreds of small stalls are available in both sides of the road. Some have reasonable prices.
  • It is near mosque, many halal food can be found nearby. My favourite was biryani food stall in an alley opposite of market where the mosque is located. Price is around 60 Bath for biryani rice and fried chicken
  • BoBae Market and BoBae Towers. Some parts of this market are actually in Pathumwan District near the Hualamphong Railway Station. In Krung Kasem road, but to save confusion its all added to Pom Prap Sattru Phai district, after all its still all Bangkok. It is not confusing to Thai people, it’s still Bobae Market and district lines mean nothing to them especially if they work there. I love visiting this market, it’s so crazy. The narrow passageways, almost seems like a prison sentence for the people working within them. It’s confined, it’s hot, it’s humid and in many places so crowded its not easy to make progress to buy or sell. This market caters for bulk buyers and is therefore very cheap if you know how to drive a hard bargain. As you pass over the canal Khlong Phadung Krung Kasem this canal splits the market in two, then cross the Krung Kasem road, take the one narrow passageway ( along Khlong Mahanak ) leading to Bobae Towers, swift and noisy ferry boats pass along the canal creating a huge wash that gives the locals on the sides a few problems. This passageway is no more than a metre wide, so be prepared to side step before you reach the other end. This then opens up on Bobae Towers building. It’s a bit like the Day the Earth stood still. The traffic here is terrible. However, there is also plenty to see and do here. Bobae Market is a major low-cost clothing selling area. It is located on a section of Krung Kasem Road between Lan Luang Road and Bamrung Mueang Road on the northeast border of the district. BoBae market is well known to be the centre of garment wholesale for over 30 years. Today, Bobae Tower revolutionised the wholesale clothing business by having well over 1300 shops all under one roof with air conditioning and facilities for the customer's convenience making BoBae Tower the biggest garment wholesale centre in Thailand. It offers good quality clothing at reasonable prices together with facilities for export & shipping transactions BoBae Tower is situated in the heart of Bangkok where transportation is the most convenient. Bangkok is a shopping haven where you can make use of your shopping skills while enjoying the bustling lifestyle this Thai city can offer. If you are searching for the best goods at the best price, Bangkok certainly won’t disappoint. Many visitors visit Pratunam Market or Chatuchak Market many times while visiting Thailand, but the smart local resident knows where to find the best place for mass market clothing. In Bangkok’s busy Bobae Market this area offers all you need for wholesale shopping to be found in two main areas – Bobae Market and Bobae Tower which are in the same location. These have long been recognized in Bangkok as a wholesale market paradise, with thousands of shops and bargain clothing goods. The goods here are at very low prices and usually sold by the dozens. It is the favourite hunting ground not just for shoppers but traders.
