IN THE CITY
Patpong Night Market offers a wide range of fake goods
such as watches, clothes, bags etc. This night market offers many
distractions, and perhaps an excuse for many to visit this famous night
spot. Haggling is expected
Lum Night Bazaar is an absolute must and a viable
alternative to visiting the Patpong Night Market and even Chatuchak as
it is not as cramped, has good quality entertainment and food stalls,
and sells almost everything you could want from your trip to Thailand.
The Bazaar opens around 6 and closes around midnight, it normally has
live entertainment such as a live band and a wide variety of food
stalls so you can enjoy an evening of fun and shopping at the same
time. A definite must for anyone with a shopping list.
Sukhumvit is an excellent shopping centre and was for many
years the best in Bangkok, it has a cinema, and a lot of quality
designer wear. They also have an excellent food court at ridiculously
cheap prices, which offers diners a lovely view over the adjacent small
park. They regularly have very good sales, which are always worth
checking out with discounts anywhere from 15 - 80% off at times.
Paragon This is an absolute must for travelers to Bangkok
in search of high quality merchandise. As with most other Malls and
Department Stores, do remember to take your passport so you can enjoy
the 5% Tourist Discount, and also make sure you claim VAT. It
should also be noted that the Siam Paragon is home to many of the
world's leading designers in Bangkok and while the actual mall may
close at around 10:30 many of the designer shops close much earlier, so
if you are looking for Gucci, Zegna, LV etc then an afternoon or
morning visit is advised. There are also some excellent restaurants at
the Siam Paragon. Do try the Blue Elephant where you can choose from an
assortment of different food types.
Chidlom Despite all the newcomers to the shopping
mall scene in Bangkok, Central Chidlom is still easily one of the best.
It is another beautiful shopping mall with everything available and
some great sales. One of the biggest advantages of this shopping mall
is the ease of navigation; it is a store and built as such without the
hundreds of shops you will find in other places. If you do go to this
shopping mall make sure you try the quite amazing food court - Food
Loft - on the sixth floor.
Bobae is a wholesale market which offers mainly clothes and textiles.
Items can be bought at very cheap prices in bulk.
Bagna If you like enormity, this is your place. You will
find pretty much everything under the sun here and all in a clean new
shopping mall. Just do not get lost!
Robinsons Sukhumvit This seems to have gone down hill recently or it
could just be that with so much new competition, it just seems that way.
