Where to Shop

Chinatown Yaowarat

“If you’re looking to get away from the sterile shopping centers, make time to wonder around Chinatown. There are many small alleys, so you never know what you might find.”

Hualampong station

Chatuchak Market

“If you’re willing to spend some time comparing vendor’s items and do your homework, you can come away from the Chatuchak Market with some good deals at the end of your day. Good street food, at the end of the Skytrain line and very easy to reach.”

Shopping Mall in Bangkok

Bangkok's modern, multi-storey shopping malls are a shopaholic's paradise... From the legendary MBK, to the sophisticated Emporium, trendy Siam Discovery and Central World Plaza, or unashamedly upscale Siam Paragon, Bangkok's accommodate every taste, pocket and style. The latest addition to the city's 'mallscape' is the innovative Terminal 21 and Central Plaza Rama 9.

Patpong night markets

The great thing about shopping in Bangkok is that most malls and department stores stay open until at least 21:00 - and some even as late as 22:00. So there's plenty of time to make the most of the city's attractions during the day, and fit in a bit of retail therapy either before or after dinner. Many markets offer great after dark shopping opportunities too - and incredible bargains in the moonlight. The most popular after dark markets is undoubtedly the Patpong Night Market.

The mother of all IT shops, the entirety of Pantip Plaza is dedicated to computer and technology items. The multistory shopping centre on Petchaburi Road offers a wide selection of stores, selling everything from computers and computer-related accessories, including; parts, printers, digital cameras, MP3 players, PDAs, and much more.

 

Ratchathewi station

Khao san road.

The centre of the backpackers' universe is bursting with fun, tacky and useful things to blow your baht on. Its ubiquitous travel shops can arrange your outward journey, whether it be flights, trains or bus tickets. The many tailors will happily whip you up a sharp suit ready for when you arrive back from the islands. A must for the beach is a gripping read, and fortunately several of the city's best second hand-book shops are here. Modern essentials aren't neglected either: internet cafes, chemists, convenience stores, banks and monetary exchanges abound.

 

Pratunam market

Deciding what to buy, and comparing prices around, is a good start. Things start to get really cheap when you're buying bulk. And don't worry about carrying everything around with you; most places will package and deliver straight to your hotel, and there are also several shipping agents around. The golden rule for bargaining is to do so with a smile - your most important negotiating tool!
