Bangkok Ultimate Shopping Guide

posted in: Tips | 7

If you are planning a trip to Bangkok any time soon, make sure to leave at least half of your suitcase empty as you are going to buy a lot of stuff. Bangkok is heaven for people who love shopping and good deals; basically it is heaven for all of us. The city is packed with huge shopping malls, plenty of different markets and endless shops. The best thing about shopping in Thailand is the fact that almost everything is cheap compared to other destinations. Even though you will be able to find luxury malls in the city as well, most of the items in Bangkok are so cheap, you simply cannot stop buying.

Siam Paragon shopping center

If you were lucky enough to be born rich or you just want to feel like that for a day, this will be the perfect place for you. The Siam Paragon shopping centre is a 500,000 square meters mall full of luxury. Louis Vuitton, Hermes, Prada, Dior, Jimmy Choo and even Porche, Ferrari and Lamborghini shops, all located under one roof! It is needless to say most of the people who actually shop there, are very, very rich. The mall is divided to six different levels. Each one has its own shops: Lifestyle & Leisure, Luxury Living, Explorium & Global Entertainment, Fashion Venue, IT & Paragon Passage and Living & Technology. Even if you don’t plan to buy anything there, it is still nice to visit the Siam Paragon and have dinner in the huge food court, watch a movie in the cinema or go to the magnificent “Siam Ocean World” aquarium which is located in the basement.

Sukhumvit Road

Sukhumvit road is the most well known shopping street in Bangkok. Here you can find the best bargains, food stalls with real Thai food, (cockroaches and grasshoppers are part of the menu) souvenirs, fake brands, clothes and shoes, crafts work and pirated DVDs. The Sukhumvit market is a spot full of life and people. The stalls are colourful and busy, Thai music is being played all over and the walking tourists carry loads of bags with clothing and gifts to take back home. When you feel like taking a break from the heavy heat and all the masses, just enter one of the close-by malls. Even at night time Sukhumvit road stays lively – the area is overloaded with bars, restaurants and different clubs. For more of the same kind of cheap markets, visit Khao San Road, Patpong Night Market and Chatuchak Weekend Market.
