Flea Market Shopping
Get on your haggling hat and head down to Patpong Night Market, a lively place to spend the evening hours. An experience as much as a retail space, the lights, atmosphere, and montage of noise that greet you here create an immediate impression and quickly introduce you to Thailand's night market culture. The quality of the goods on offer is variable, so make sure you browse the extent of what's available and bargain for a decent price. With bars and restaurants lining the streets, you can easily do some people-watching before or after shopping your fill.

  • Good for knockoff shopping. Bad for children. They sell sex in the street. Very crowded. If you have a man interest that frequents Bangkok drop him. If he's not truly there for work he is there for sex. They sell dildos and other items on the street. They have sex menus. One man ask me why was I there because i wasn't shopping for sex. The men better be careful about what and who they purchase. They might be a transgender. They actually look better than many women. I went for knockoffs and got harassed more for not purchasing sex. It was also sad to see the little girls being trained to be working girls. I saw many standing next to their mom's. They didn't go to school. That was school. I hope that was just that area. They don't stand a chance if they stay there. IJS!
  • This is not a place to take your kids because night time you see the pimps trying too sell you all sort of "stuff" but off you ignore them eventually they'll go away until the next one comes. There are night markets with great shopping. Also great massage places with great packages. Nice good joints plus you gotta love the 7-11 & Family Marts.
  • I liked the market, but the pimps trying to make disturbance by selling adult shows are just fraud....yes, we had a situation where we were told 100 baht a pint of beer. But when we ordered, some girls came around us and removed there clothes. We were shocked and started going out with 100 note in hand for beer, but the lady came with a stick and told to give 300 baht per person, we argued, their so called guards came but we managed to run...than we came out, and started finding that pimp, fraud pimp...but he ran away... Market is good for shopping, but be aware of this adult fraud market there
  • Very nice market for street shopping. Bargaining skills are polished to the T. Star with less than half of the price and you'd be surprised at how less you would actually end up paying. Lots of bags T shirts and other little souvenirs can be bought. A great vibe I think 👍
  • Not a place, that I wanted to get introduced with at first. But as a true Explorer, all place needs an induction. Thus visited the vibrant street. It is definitely one of the vibrant and colorful night markets of Thailand. The warmest people are its assets. It feels like the entire country has been made for tourism.
