  • Make sure you are ready to bargain before buying any product and bargain at least half of what they ask or even less then that. If you are into fake expensive brands then this is the place to be but y...  more »
  • If you go with the right mindset, the market can be quite good. Feilschun you have what this stuff keeps, too intrusive and even quite unfriendly and brazen they're with their "original goods" but we have made a few decent was most fascinating was a police control and all their counterfeit goods go left, was quite impressive. The shows right and left of the booths were rather lame to us, also the show tugs were rather reserved. Since we knew that one of over the ear cut be can we left it with a beer on the edge of the market. Tuesday to Sunday but it has a very good street food offer at the end of the market

  • No longer bring out sellers because. The price you can equal half default set and when you're running away can again round were then give in to. Caution some very poor quality.

  • Good stuff but a lot of bargaining. They increase the price 5 folds and if you don't know the real value then you get ripped off. Good for window shopping though. But definitely not a place to go with kids. They have all sort of sex shows and girls standing and offering services
  • Beware of ping pong agents. The will convince you for shows with drink for 100 bath. Once you go in and order for a drink they agent will disappear. And for a 100 bath drink you will be charged 4500 bath. You will have to negotiate and settle for a lower price with mutual agreement. If not be ready to get man handled. If you are ready to get ripped off go ahead. This happens with all ping pong shows. Stay clear stay safe.
  • 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!
  • A night market mainly for foreigners. They sell knocked off watches, clothes, hand bags, wallets, etc. It is amazing the number of foreigners buying fake stuff there. If you do decide to get it, make sure you bargain the hell out of it. There are bars along the streets; not suggest you go in at all as they will charge you an arm and legs for a normal beer even you are promised 100 baht a drink. Definitely not for small children to go to this night market.
  • 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.

Where to stay in Bangkok

As a commercial, cultural, and tourist center, Bangkok offers a great diversity of accommodations. For long established and chain hotels, try Sukhumvit Road and the areas surrounding the central Siam Square, where budget and luxury rooms are available in abundance. If you are looking for the backpacker zone, head to Khaosan Road, where you'll find a wealth of inexpensive, simple accommodations surrounded by businesses tailored to traveler's needs. Consider staying at a guesthouse to gain a deeper understanding of Thai life.
