  • There is a wide variety of clothing stores that can be chosen as they are. The price is cheaper if you buy 3 items upwards. The place includes a clean and not so much smell not as good as the market image. There is also a chance to try noodle food in one of its shops. The taste is quite good but the price is not as cheap as imagined, one bowl turns 60 baht. But also have a coffee there, the Americano hot 25 Baht only, but it feels steady like in Kafe2 Gitu. It's in Thailand recommended coffee

  • IDK if it's really like that but when we went there, most of the clothes that are sold in Pratunam are corporate/business attires. There were also other goods such as hair products but I didn't bother...  more »
  • If you're looking to shop for clothing then this is the place. Enough clothes to dress the entire of Thailand. However I went for food which ended being something of a mistake. I only found a small fo...  more »

  • Nice environment to shop! Items not the cheapest, but still affordable. It's definitely better if you are individual shopper. However, if you are going to buy wholesale stuff, need to go Pratunam Market to get in bundles. The food court at the top level serve decent local delicacies if you aren't those whom dare to try street food. If you have no idea where to get gifts for your family, friends and colleagues, they got a lot of small gifts for you to purchase and bring home some souvenirs. Awesome place to bring your partner whom love shopping.
  • Maybe I’m just a night market fans? There are so many stalls there. But first, lemme take you to their street food stalls. Still one of the greatest night market with great food too. Their pork n chicken fritters are the best of the best! (The stall is near gateway hotel) And what will makes u happy if you in there ? THEIR PRICE! 🤘🏻
  • A good place to shop around leisurely. We found quite a few good deals. You would definitely have to bargain a lot as the rates are jacked up anticipating a bargaining crowd. But some shopkeepers are aggressive and would react very negatively to people who bargain. There are so many inner lanes that one can explore. Definitely a place to visit for a street shopper.
  • Not a bad place. You can find some quality clothes with low prices here and most of the shop assistants understand simple English. The only drawback is the shops don't let you try on the clothes before buying. Some of the shops do have measuring tape though to help measure the size of the clothes so you can make sure to get the best piece that fits on you.
  • Local market in Bangkok. Reasonable rates of general commodities. Best for women dresses. Men wears. U can get good sovereigns if u have good bargaining skills. Heaven for people who are there to shop and buy in bulk. I saw people coming there with large empty bags filled after shopping. Cheap market against other markets.Good shopping and good prices. Don't buy from the first stall. Walk around and get a feel of prices for the items you interested in. Many stalls will have same or similar items. Can do some bargaining for prices here. Also visit the stalls outside in the covered market across from the Indra Hotel. One can spend a few hours here. Best place to buy an extra bag if you need one!Really great place for a holiday that entails all things shopping ! Safe and friendly locals. Stores and stores of fruits and food and almost every other thing under the sun. Make sure you are good at direction if you go walking around Bangkok because it's a maze of streets. But have fun. Saw some rats and cockroaches so wear shoes. Quite expensive for the quality of the products you get.Mostly Chinese made items for sale. Many stalls sell the same thing. As a tourist it's hard to get the locals to lower their price in bargaining and yet the locals seem to get the same item at a better price.
