About
This long-standing market in Bangkok is a shopping haven for bargain hunters. Take a stroll through the alleys and marvel at all that's on offer—rolls of textiles, clothing and footwear, and even handmade crafts. There are even inexpensive laptops and cameras on offer for gadget lovers. Remember to brush up on some basic Thai phrases before you go—you might be surprised at the extra discounts or freebies you can score! Buying in bulk is often a lot cheaper too. It's a popular stop on many city tours and food tours of Bangkok, so go in the early afternoon when the shops are fully stocked. – Tripadvisor

    Large clothes market
    Pratunam is a Thailand's largest wholesale/retail clothes market on Ratchaprarop Road. The prices are very good and the inside market is not really aimed at tourists, it is aimed at small local retailers who can buy their goods there for resale. The outside market is aimed at tourists and the prices are higher. A tourist can buy at the inside market which shows prices and pricing is straightforward and low. They sometimes offer discounts linked to volume, so buying more items may get you a small discount on the marked price. I like to go there to buy clothes which are much better value there than in the tourist markets.

    Cheap buys, mostly apparel
    Cheap buys ranging from THB50 and above. There are shops in the building winding in a spiral, then there are more outside along the streets. Most are wholesale where it gets cheaper when you buy more, but sometimes even for single piece, the prices are cheap too. Don't expect quality. Toilets in the building are decent (a little dim but reasonably clean), doesn't provide toilet paper though. Crowded, not for the claustrophobic.

    Good bargain market
    this market is so big that you can lost on it. The clothes are very cheap and is very good quality. That's why I'm not surprised when it is so crowded and congested with shoppers. The only thing is that it's too traffic to get there and I was a bit lost and it was at the end of the day so it was very tiring but when I get there just fine because I get to buy some really affordable clothes that I can bring home. This is highly recommended especially if you're buying wholesale.

    Good deals
    Normal bustling outdoor market, with better deals compared to the malls around it such as Platinum or Palladium malls. Highly recommended to go. Good number of shops selling Muslimah clothing as well.

With my wife preparing for life in the UK we took a trip albeit a 20 min walk rpund some back roads from Phaya Thai BTS rejecting numerous tuk tuk and taxi approaches.
It is a fair maze of shops selling ladies clothes often offering discounts for larger quantities of purchases. Be aware that the aisles for walking are narrow and you will need to give way to ladies wheeling large bags of fashion bargains.

We went on a Monday night,there were so few stores it was rather dismal. Food options were limited, we had dinner at the smaller of the two restaurants in the covered area. Food was a bit meh. I got home and threw up at around midnight, possible food poisoning? There were enough local customers there so I thought it'd be safe. Perhaps not! Don't bother with pratunam.

A lot of option available for clothes on affordable rate. People say this si similar to Chatuchak weekend market which is one of the famous place of tourist.

It was just outside of our hotel so we completed most of our shopping from here.
