Pratunam Market Bangkok is known as a wholesale market. Vendors having huge stock of products are focused on number of sales and offer products at low prices. If you are ready to buy 3 or more than 3 products, you can take away the products to your home at wholesale price. As items are already available at cheap prices, you do not need to bargain too much. However, buyers must keep some important things in mind.
• Items once purchases are not returned back
• Might be able to try on but it will be Thai style
• No replacement

Pratunam Market in Bangkok is located at the intersection of Phetburi and Ratchaprarop roads in the district Ratchathewi. One of the best (my favorite) ways to access is by boat but there are other different ways to get there. Petchaburi road takes you right towards the market!!
