    happy

    Lumpini Night Bazaar (Also know as Suan Lum and opposite opposite Lumpini Park) is definitely worth a visit. Good shopping, 3 bands, GREAT food court!! Cheap & delicious. You can get to it by subway.

    There is much to see and buy. I especially enjoyed listening to the live bands whilst I ate and drank in the open air food court. Bands play every night. Great atmosphere.

    I believe there are plans for a floating restaurant and a Chinese shopping village;

    The action begins at sunset.

    How to get there:

    Suan Lum Night Bazaar 1875 Rama IV Road

    MRTA (Subway): Lumpini, *****Best way ***

    BTS (Sky Train): Sala Daeng

    talking

    They are both very different experiences. Patong conatins many sex bars. It is often much more crowded. You are sure to pick up bargains there.

    I bought some lovely silk clothes at lumpini night bazaar. Total cost was less than 20 pounds.

    I felt much safer buying silk at lumpini. At Patong, I feel more likely to be ripped off.

    I would definitely go to both. As you say, Pratunam (close to the World Trade Centre) has some great bargains. It is the cheapest place for clothes but you need to shop around as some stores are the same price as in other places. As a guide you should be paying around 150 baht for a lacoste or polo shirt.

    Pratunam is the place I head to first to buy all my clothes for my trip. I go to Thailand with an empty suit case and buy my clothes there. One thing to watch thought is that Thai clothes are smaller and vary a lot. A thai large could mean a size 12 or 16 in England. Remember to pack a tape measure.

    Lumpini is an evening visit.

    You have to bargain a lot at Patpong and still you feel you are being ripped of. I bargained for something and reduced the price to about 60 % of the starting price. I was really pleased. Then my Thai friend tried and she got 80% off.

    Are you going to Chatuchak (J J) weekend market?

    You can spend hours wandering around this market (if you can stand the heat) and still never see it all.

    It's the cheapest place in Bangkok for souvenirs and a great place to watch how Thai people like to shop! You can get to it by skytrain or by subway now.
