Be it during the day or past midnight, Silom has something to satisfy all breeds of shopper. Start with the shopping malls in the area, including Silom Complex, Central, and Robinson. Also don't miss Silom's sub-sois, notably Soi 'Lalaisup', where local food, clothing and accessories can be had at reasonable prices.
Fancy shopping under the Bangkok's night sky? Then head to the famous Patpong Night Market. Here - inbetween peeks at the sex trade which still survives here - souvenirs, Thai crafts, CD's, DVD's, counterfeit watches and bags, funny and rude T-shirts, boxing shorts and a whole lot of other things can be bargained for. This and the vendors who turn up along Silom and Saledaeng Roads each night, are undoubtedly the most popular shopping option, especially for tourists.
