10. GET NAUGHTY - No Bangkok trip is complete without getting a bit naughty and the city's most notorious nightlife remains concentrated around Patpong night market area. Patpong is one of the world's largest red light area, and its action had been immortalized by one James Bond movie. Although Soi Cowboy is supposedly the top naughty nightlife area of Bangkok, at Patpong you can buy excellent cheap remakes of designers bags, gorge on amazing and adventurous local street food (from snails, geese, insects to chicken claws and more) and chilling out with beer and music at one of the endless bars there.
Last day in Bangkok. Rainy day. We checked out from hotel and found ourselves on streets. Time for some shopping before we leave :P There is a big weekend market in Bangkok and this is the asias biggest market place. So we made a visit to that place.Note: Before buying anything show your best in BARGAINING.
Pat Pong - A little drizzle in the evening, Pat Pong (my first visit to a pole dance bar). A small street market, squeezed in between the 100 neon-lit strip bars offering naughty shows and the famous pole-dancing entertainment. Pat Pong is a night market. You can buy souvenirs here. However, the prices are quite steep in comparison to other such markets in Bangkok. Tips for tourists : Make sure you keep the beer bottles or your drink glasses on the table after you have emptied those. Count the number of drinks you take. If you do not, you are in for a surprise when you see the bill. We got ripped. For four bottles of beer and 6 pegs of whiskey (including 2 pegs drank by the bar girls who came and sat with us), our bill was 4000 Baht. After a long argument we shelled out 2800 Baht(according to the menu prices and our calculation, it was just 1200 Baht). It’s a tough thing to do if you do not know Thai. Somehow my friends were convincing enough, we still paid extra.
Generally all malls closed by 8 pm, so early, hmm, what to do? But if you are in Bangkok still shopping is possible- How?? Bangkok is also famous for its ‘Night Market’. Among them one which is the most prominent and famous among tourist is “Patpong Night Market” located in the Silom, district Of Bangkok. The place is always busy and chaotic with all the commotion from the nearby GO GO Bars and lot of foreign Tourists. This market in Bangkok’s notorious nightlife district is a first and the easiest stop for many tourists. The quality and the prices of most of the items sold in the market are as real as it looks. But remember not to be fooled by the first impression and Bargain hard in order to buy something. Both Market and Go Go Bars seems to complement each other well. For More: Click Here Facts: Recommended length of visit: 2-3 hrs.
