Patpong Road in Bangkok is a famous night market close to Lumphini Park. Patpong Road is also famous for being one of the red light districts of Bangkok, lined with Go-Go bars and beer bars.
At night time, the street is lined with market stalls selling a whole range of cheap products like t-shirts, sunglasses, clothing and fashion items, jewelry, watches and all the other cheap ‘genuine imitation’ products you find in Thailand. There are loads of cheap rip-off products like Gucci handbags, Ray Ban sunglasses and imitation rolex watches. These imitations are quite good copies of the real products and a fraction of the price.
Patpong Night Market is a pedestrian only street so you stroll through the markets without having to worry about motorbikes or cars along the road.
If you are feeling adventurous, then step into one of the Go-Go bars where they have some of the very risque shows like the famous ping pong shows that Thailand is known for. There are also some beer bars which have tables and chairs along the edge of the markets. Sit back with a cold drink and enjoy the quality people watching.
You can also get loads of great Thai street food within the Patpong Night Markets. If you want to try some excellent Thai food, look out for the street vendors who are selling the local Thai food to the market vendors. This will be some of the cheapest and best Thai food you can try in Bangkok.
