Visitors to Bangkok will most certainly visit the many markets around the city to find bargains and every visitor feels called upon to do a night market even if they don’t want to buy anything; just to experience the atmosphere of these places. The crowded markets with all sorts of wares piled up in little stalls, located in neon lit narrow allies and the accompanying commotion seems to attract visitors of all sorts from backpackers to tourists looking for bargains and even locals. Patpong night market is no exception. Found in the crowded Soi Patpong in Silom the market is adjacent to nightclubs and bars that add to the crowds and atmosphere. 

Having started some 15 years ago as a flea market it has turned into one of the busiest markets in the area catering mostly to visitors looking for bargains amongst the huge range of merchandise heaped up and even strung across small individual stalls. This includes everything from clothing for both sexes to accessories, household items, Thai handicrafts, jewellery, paintings, collectibles and food. Stalls spill out onto the adjacent roads and apparently better bargains are to be had further away from the market centre. Haggling is expected and most visitors come away happy having bargained their way through to a ‘find’. Although many will find it confusing to find their way among the maze of narrow alleys and to choose from the selection of wares piled up in front of them, those with a sense of adventure, ardent market shoppers and bargain hunters will find the experience of getting to grips with finding a bargain fun. Some of the best shopping experiences here are from wandering around, getting to see all the merchandise and experiencing the vibe of the place.

Those wishing to take in the night market scene should visit the Patpong market after about 7 pm when the market is up and running. Thereafter visitors can put their haggling skills to the test till the wee hours of the morning.
