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.

  • Pretty lowlife vibe here, plenty of guys hassling you to see a girly show and market is just the same stuff you see everywhere. It is what it is - I was curious but happy to leave. 
  • Let's say it is one of the most beautiful areas of Bangkok but found it to be very particular, has its own rules. Taxi drivers to come away refuse to turn on the meter, (and I'm very fussy) I stopped at least 10 before resigning myself to pay an amount contracted. Thai sprouting everywhere for you to go and see the night show, dirt on the street, but positive note the stalls don't sell only false things as here is often repeated but also some nice souvenirs at reasonable prices.

  • Grand market night of the Silom district, we find about everything and nothing. All around the market are the dance bars with touts that launch you: "ping pong show" all the time. It of a bit murky anyway but gives a certain cachet to the neighborhood.

  • Patpong it would be great if they honest to tourist, they offer thin bad quality t-shirt for 600-500 baht. Even shopping mall sell cheap t-shirt with good quality. Not only that, almost all items over priced about 500%. Try to shop outside Patpong road, the seller offer reasonable price to bargain. This is the most worst and horrible shopping place in Bangkok. But if you want to see ping pong show this is the right place.
  • This is one of the unique places in the world. You have to go. The streets sell very poor fake watches and bags, but there is great street food across the street. Men and women will approach you and show you 'menus' for "ping pong shows'. You will be told that drinks are cheap and you don't have to pay for anything else. I went inside for two drinks with my girlfriend and they tried to charge me 2,000 baht instead of the 200 baht. This WILL happen to you, just stand your ground and be ready to run out. You have the law on your side, don't let them intimidate you.
  • Lots of hassle from the vendors, gogo bar touts and especially the pingpong show touts. DEFINITELY NOT A PLACE TO TAKE CHILDREN. Interesting place to browse a market but prices much higher than other markets in Bangkok, less likely to be bartered down to something reasonable. Most bars here sell small beers at 150-200 baht when you could get them for 50-70 elsewhere. Beware the gogo girls, they will ask you to buy them a drink which will cost more than a beer. We enjoyed ourselves because we knew of the scams and could avoid them. If you don't mind the cost then there is some great live music around.
  • It's just another market that caters to tourists. Anyone going there knows you bargain heavily before buying anything. But bargaining done properly is lots of fun for buyer and seller. I've gotten many small items there at good prices. It just happens to be located in a tired formerly somewhat sleazy area but now quite family-friendly. Many decent bars and cafes in the area as well as pharmacies. Yes, there are a few tugs and pulls to get you into their joints, but it's all very tame stuff. Actually a bit of fun. Personally, I wouldn't go upstairs for a "free" show myself, but at street level I wouldn't worry too much.
