Patpong night market, Bangkok


The strip of pavement along the north side of Silom and the entire pedestrian precinct of Patpong is transformed into a busy market for garments and other products after sunset.

In the daytime, Silom Road functions as Bangkok's center for business, banking and commerce. During the night, it turns into a lively entertainment zone and night market.

The main products on sale are ready-to-wear garments with many brand-name items. Please be aware that the brand-name items are cheap imitations. Also available are pirate tapes and CDs, watches, various Thai handicrafts, games, leather items, household ornaments and the like. Bargaining is a must at this lively market, which flanks some of Bangkok's notorious night spots.
