  • Any market like this in a major city is going to be crowded. No exception here! The sidewalk of vendors is narrow so if you're a claustrophobic person, this might not be the place for you. Walk across the street where it's less crowded. Most vendors sell the same type of merchandise; mostly clothing, souvenirs, crafts, shoes, etc. This market isn't massive in size like other markets. Traveling is all about the experience. Despite the so-so reviews this got, enjoy the surroundings, sights, smells and sounds of a night market. Yes, you may be asked a few times if you want a massage, but in my opinion, it's all part of the experience.
  • It may had been fun to visit a few years ago, but I didn't find anything interesting here. What is surprising? That many good restaurants (mostly Japanese) are to be discovered in between some of Bangkok's uninteresting soi's.
  • So lively, you can find souvenirs at fair prices, you can make them lower them more if you negotiate. Pubs and nights are available.
  • Though many of the night markets in Bangkok are being shut down, this one has somehow managed to survive. It's a shame it's got such a small selection to eat... and being in the touristy district, prices are higher and quality is lower... but at least it's still there!
  • Basically Patpong...just a "don't go there" place to me, crap stalls no food only "gogo" bars and Japanese restaurants with prostitute in queue on the front door, a lot of them with chairs...I seen family with children there but for what? Really disgusting.
