Owner description: In the evening, this lively market is a great place to shop for souvenirs, fake brand name items and cheap goods and to visit Bangkok’s infamous “adult entertainment area.”

Our guide had told us that the Patpong market has slipped in recent years and there wasn't as much action as there used to be. We found it still quite crowded on a Thursday night. Not sure why. The souvenir stands that fill the street sell the same ol stuff you can find nearly anywhere else in the city, only at inflated tourist prices that hopefully you can bargain down to. I didn't even try. The bars that line the storefronts have open doors and you can peek in to see the girls on stage. Of course the greeters will entice you to try and come in. And then there are the guys who will try and get you to see a Ping Pong show. I had heard the horror stories about them so smartly stayed away.

Crazy experience, market with various booths to shop in the center and strip clubs on the sides. Yes a lot of the booths sell the same stuff, lots of knock offs, some good stuff. Bargain, start at least at half the price they name. Can be very crowded and overwhelming.

Worth a quick visit but lots of people shoving "Ping Pong" "Sex Shows" in your face with menus of "Pussy" attractions.

Having been to Thailand quite a few times - Patpong is always worthy of a visit just for a look . Yes there are semi naked dancers on view from the street and plenty of people offering the ping pong show . But for me it’s a tick off your list - I’ve been to Bangkok and went to Patpong just to see what it’s like.

This night market is quite legend in Bangkok. Other than adult club along the side, this area also provides a number of pedestals that sell a variety of products.

They sell a lots of interesting products starting from traditional gift sets until quality copies of branded international brands.

You have to be dare to bargain, otherwise you will be paying too much for the product.

I was looking forward to haggling and finding some bargains but to be honest, found nothing worth buying. After walking 20 meters you have seen everything the market has to offer, it just repeats the whole time. Along with the many Go Go bars also along this street, the aim of anyone here is to see how much they can get away with ripping off the tourists. If you are looking for expensive fake belts or lighters, maybe it is worth a visit. If you are going here hoping to see any sort of Thai authenticity then you will be disappointed.
