"Patpong (sounds like PingPong?)" Patpong Night Market Tip by June.b

Patpong Night Market, Bangkok: 33 reviews and 49 photos


Situated between the two famous roads, Silom & Suriwong, Patpong is definitely a nightlife rather than a daylight venue. For one thing, it is home to Bangkok's lively night spots vis-a-vis the famous Night Market.

Loud bars with gogo dancers lined up the Patpong streets (both soi 1 & 2), just passing along these streets even if you're on shopping, you can't get away with the "sales staff" of all the clubs & bars that will persuade you to "come & see inside" and ladies offering "other" services too. Well, you can even see the gogo dancers gyrating to the beat on the ledges or platforms even from the street view. No wonder the area itself is called Bangrak or Town of Love, you know what I mean, right? And yes, bangrak is also the business district of Bangkok. Business & entertainment goes along well here!

But for the night market alone, Patpong is really worth a trip or two, in case you don't have the time to get to Chatuchak Weekend Market - Bangkok's (or asia's or world's(?)) largest weekend market, you'll get the chance to buy souvernirs here.

...as for the Ping Pong word ...hmmmm.....well.........it's a common word that you'll get to hear along the street of Patpong.... you'll have to find out, I'm innocent.... LOL!

Beware of pickpockets!
