Bangkok Shopping

If you’re traveling the world looking for the perfect place to shop, Bangkok is it. Bangkok shopping offers the most amazing and exciting opportunities to find everything you could possibly dream of. Best of all, Bangkok shopping can be done at great bargain prices.

Nowhere in the world will you find markets like the ones in Bangkok. The size of the markets and array of merchandise is enough to leave you speechless. If you were looking for a shopper’s paradise, you’ll probably agree that this is it.

A good place to start is the Chatuchak weekend market, which covers over 30 acres and has more than 14,000 stalls. Here, you’ll definitely find something to buy. It’s not only one of the best places for Bangkok shopping; it’s a great market to buy traditional Thai gifts. Among these gifts, you’ll find jewelry, delicate silks, Buddhist amulets, celadon ceramics, images of Buddha, and of course, colorful Thai fabrics.

The Suam Lum Bazaar is another fabulous place to shop. Children can enjoy a puppet show while you hunt for the best bargains in clothing and jewelry. There’s also a beer garden where Thai bands play traditional folkloric music. It’s a great way to enjoy Bangkok shopping.

If you’re looking for a high tech item, head to the Saphan Let Market, where you’ll find cheap electronics. It’s within walking distance from Chinatown and Indian town, so you can combine your sightseeing with great Bangkok shopping. On the way to Saphan Let Market, you’ll come across small textile markets. These are great outlets for buying colorful Thai fabrics.

Another hot spot is Pratunam Market, which specializes in clothing and name brand garments. You’ll get what you want, and at great prices.

Shopping Centers
Another great feature of Bangkok shopping is the selection of shopping malls. MBK, also known as Mah Boon Krong, is home to one of the largest department stores, the Tokyu. Here, you’ll find good deals in cosmetics, fragrances, fine clothing and even custom furnishings.

A beautiful place to shop is the Siam Paragon Shopping Center. It’s home to select fashion shops. There’s also a large department store, with four floors of trendy clothing and beauty care products. The gourmet floor is the most amazing feature of the center; here, you can purchase food from any place around the globe. If you’re ready for a break, head for the food court, for a variety of restaurants at great value.

Tip: If you’re traveling with children, you might want to consider a visit to the mall’s Ocean World.

Other important shopping centers worth mentioning include Central World Plaza. It’s located next to Big C, and is one of the largest department stores for Bangkok shopping. And for youngsters seeking the latest trends, Siam Square is the place to go.

But apart from all this great Bangkok shopping, make time to visit the flower markets. These are reminders of the fact that this large city is also a gentle place of beauty.
