Silom Night Market is a tourist night market that was established in the early days of Bangkok’s development. Very few locals frequent the market. Items for sale include clothing, crafts, bags and other souvenirs. It is a red-light district and home to many pole dancing bars. The area covered by the night market is compact, requiring a half hour or so to traverse the entire area. The market includes a number of small shops selling a wide range of uniquely designed men’s underwear. One cannot help but marvel at the many unique and novel patterns on the undergarments.
