Bangkok: Shopping

The City of Angels

Some people only visit for a shopping holiday in Bangkok. That is testament to the sheer volume of malls, mega malls, markets, street stalls and shops offering the widest variety of products available. Whatever you are looking for, it is all here. Shopping in Bangkok is a unique experience which offers nothing short of the most amazing and unique products available. Whether it is fine hand tailored clothes, traditional Thai silk, Asian antiques from specialist shops and dealers, stunning local handicrafts or simply a special gift for someone back home, you will be sure to find it in Bangkok. The Shopping Mall Experience varies from bargains galore in MBK to Siam Paragon – the epitome of high-class Bangkok. Enjoy the Bangkok after-dark shopping experience in Khao San Road or Patpong. Hit the town for funky shopping at trendy megastores such as Zen in Centralworld or find Thai crafts in the Narayana Phand Pavillion and Chitralada shops.

The Chinatown Experience is oddly kitsch, charming and nostalgic. Along with many gold shops, you’ll also find sacks of roasted chestnuts, sequins, feather boas, eccentric virility boosters and martial art weapons. Panthip Plaza is for all those techno-geeks. It is packed from floor to ceiling with stalls and shops selling all kinds of computer and electronic paraphernalia. The Flower & Fresh Produce market offers a dazzling sensory experience full of colour, life and aromas. Shopping in Bangkok is an amazing experience that will have you back wanting more.
