Pratunam Market  Phetchaburi road and surrounding Soi’s    09:00 am to 18:00 pm daily. The

Pratunam Market is an immense open-air garment market, and although it is geared towards

exporters, anyone can shop here. Most of the items for sale are T-shirts, dresses, shorts, jeans,

shoes and accessories. You could easily spend a day here if you wish, as the area has a stunning

amount of more than 4,000 shops. While the market is officially open till 18:00, many shops already

close around 16:00. The market spreads out on the streets around Baiyoke Tower I, and the ground

floor of that tower also has a few clothing shops. In the early evening, a night market is set up in

the streets along Baiyoke Tower I that stay open until after 02:00 am. This market whilst great for looking around is not as good as Khlong Thom Market in China Town. I would suggest taking a tape measure with you, as many of the products are not true to size.

Palladium Square is a shopping mall  in Ratchathewi district, Bangkok. It was formerly known

as Pratunam Centre and is  located on the corner of Phetchaburi Road and Ratchaprarop,

this area is already known for wholesale shopping at Platinum Fashion Mall, electronics Mecca

Pantip Plaza and the busy, all day and all night world of Pratunam Market found just across the

road. This five storey building is home to bargains galore with most shops and stalls selling

many items of clothing for 100 Baht or less.

It is a major market area with thousands of fashion stores that sell wholesale with cheap prices guaranteed,( so they say ) especially if you buy in bulk. Pratunam, also includes the areas of Victory Monument, Ratchathewi and Makkasan. The southern boundary of Pratunam is marked by the Saen Saep Canal. This canal was dug during the reign of King Rama III in the mid nineteenth century to connect the Chao Phraya River with the Bang Pakong River to the east. When Saen Saep was connected with Maha Nak Canal and Krung Kasem Canal, a gate was required to control the water level between them. Pratunam means water gate. It was not developed until the 1960's when rice fields dominated the landscape. Around that time, a fresh produce market was set up near the Indra Hotel at Ratchaprarop Road.
