We all know that Bangkok is shopping central. From fashion goods to gadgets – if you want something cheap, then this is the city to visit. To all the shopaholics out there, we’re making it simple for you. We are listing out the some of the best shopping destinations in Bangkok, Thailand. Ofcourse, we’re balancing the high end shopping malls and the not so fancy malls. We want you ladies to get the best of both worlds!
HIGH-END SHOPPING DESTINATIONS
If you enjoy designer goods and branded labels, then these three shopping malls are a must on your shopping list!
1.) Terminal 21 is not exactly as high end as Siam Paragon but you will be able to find designer goods and even local designer goods too. The most unique thing about Terminal 21 is the entire mall is based on travelling. Each floor at Terminal 21 represents one country. For example, the first floor is themed ‘Rome’ so you will see bits and peices of signature monuments from that country. From Japan to London and ever Turkey, Terminal 21 is going to making your shopping experience extra fun! Not to forget, the escalotors to each country (floor) represent airport terminals. Pretty snazzy, if you ask us!
2.) Siam Paragon is said to be one of the biggest malls in Asia. From designer handbags, to designer jewelries, they have it all. In fact, when you go on your shopping spree, and if you are bringing your man, he will enjoy his time there just as much as you because there is a special floor dedicated to high end cars. Yep, at Siam Paragon, you can get designer bags and a pretty new Ferrari all in the same complex.
3.) The Emporium is the place for the highest of classes. Along with The Emporium department store, the mall contains a cinema multiplex and book, record, fashion and trinket shops, a grocery store, a food court and many upscale restaurants. If your planning to go for an easy and simple shopping spree, then The Emporium might be your shopping mall of choice.
AFFORDABLE SHOPPING DESTINATIONS
If your planning to go on a major shopping spree and get a whole load of goods for good prices, then you will love these three places!
1.) Jatuchak is an open air market that sells everything under the sky. You can find clothes, art, housing appliances and even pets! It’s a huge stretch of land filled with everything a shoppaholic wants and needs! Not to mention – it is a big tourist destination because of it’s cheap prices! Whether it’s clothes or furniture that your buying, the prices are just as satisfying as the goods. The only down side of Jatuchak is that you have to be ready to be in the sun the entire time. So, don’t forget that sunblock!
2.) Siam Square is right beside MBK so it is pretty convenient. It is more like a street filled with affordable clothes, shoes and accessories. It is outdoors, but not as big as Jatuchak. This is the place where shopaholics love to start – and move on to MBK. This is where even the locals love to come and shop!
3.) MBK is a mall full of the cheapest things around – it is not a whole sale place, but it is just as cheap! If you are someone that doesn’t like the hot sun, then you might find what you need at MBK. It is a shopping mall dedicated to shoppaholics. There is one floor for clothes, one floor for shoes, one floor for food and even one floor for gadgets like phones/iPads/laptops/games. At MBK, you will not fail to find what you want!
So there you have it, get ready, pack your backs and be prepared to go all out! Shopaholics, Bangkok is the place for you to go all out! Have you been to these shopping destinations? Or are you planning to? We want your feedback!
