  • The place is surprising... You find in the middle of a night market where all mzisxassez... it must be negotiate... and sides expensive and parallel streets, there is an any other 'market' with bars go-go dancers and other young girls and young boys very beautiful little dressed s... Thinking that it was just a night market typical Thai of Bangkok, we went there without concern with our girls (9 and 15 years old) and the youngest was panicked by what she saw, our teenager, she immediately understood what it was and found it amazing! So be careful with young children. We have more were unwelcome by prostitutes and their touts and quickly had our way. Well, that said, it is also that the Thailand...

  • I've been to this market and area 5 times in 27 years and it has deteriorated to the extent that it should be closed. My friends got scammed to take a peek in one of the bars and they got locked in un...  more »

  • Fun place to shop around for underwear and a whole bunch of other trinkets and souvenirs and the like, but annoying as heck! I mean, I love to haggle prices down to a comfortable size for my pocket, while still giving the sellers a profit for their efforts, right? But when they try to see me as an American-money-fountain and treat me as though I'm stupid, giving me an over-the-top inflated price for something I know I can get for a freaking tenth of what they're asking me for, it just freaking annoys me! Don't give me your "Best, final price..." give me a price that makes freaking sense and then let's play the haggle game... that's all I ask. Beautiful place to have fun though...
  • Great fun and I highly recommend the visit. Things don't start to about 6 or 7pm and finish about midnight. Don't expect to get great bargains but do work on your barganing skills and you might just beat them at their own game. Also there's a chance that what may look original might not be so. Be aware that you will be proportioned to enter some of the more interesting bars either side of the market; at your own peril be it!
  • Not very exciting for shopping. If in Bangkok one must go to chatuchak but You can easily miss this one though. At the back good food options here just like all other markets in Thailand. We loved mango smoothie and mango sticky rice here.
  • Not the best night market if you are savvy. Keep wallets and purses safe. Had a nice little haggle when I bought a few things. There were a few pimps trying to lure you into the strip clubs in and around that area. Probably best avoid this place if you have a young family or girlfriend for that matter, it'll save that awkward question of what a ping pong show is... :-/
  • This place is sleazy, and I would not recommend going there. DO NOT go to "ping pong shows"! Lots of people on the street will try to get you in. They will tell you that it's only 100 Baht per person, but that is a lie. The show is lame and poorly done. We went in, ordered two Coke cans, and after 5-10 minutes realized what a dumb thing it was, so decided to leave without even opening the Cokes. They gave us a bill for 4,400 Baht, roughly equivalent to $150! Of course we refused to pay. They started yelling at us, but we just turned around and left. What a scam! The night market itself is nothing special - cheap stuff at touristy prices.
