Bangkok - A Shopper's Paradise

Among the multitude of shopping malls and interesting local markets, there’s no end to what you can find while shopping in Bangkok.

ICONSIAM is set to be not just a commercial complex but a landmark sitting on the banks of the Chao Phraya River. Inside this megamall, you will find 7-story Japanese Takashimaya featuring fashion stores, cosmetic shops, restaurants and more, indoor floating market with food good, museum, all luxury brand stores you can think of, of course cafés and restaurants and much more! From the hotel, you can take a BTS to Saphan Taksin station (2 stations away) and get on the ferry. It’s convenient as that!

Venture to Siam Paragon shopping center for an indulgent shopping spree of luxury brand names. Designer clothing, extravagant jewelry and watches, and the latest in high-end handbags from brands such as Gucci, Burberry, Versace and Prada, can be found at Siam Paragon shopping center. Other shopping centers near Siam Paragon include Siam Center, Siam Discovery and Central World. Continue your shopping extravaganza in Sukhumvit at The Emporium Shopping Complex and The EmQuartier.

Those seeking a wide range of affordable fashionable options will find themselves at home at The Platinum Fashion Mall, which is renowned as Thailand’s largest wholesale and retail shopping destination. The 6-floor shopping mall offers everything from women’s clothing, accessories, and children clothes to souvenirs from a myriad of local and international brands. Its central location and easy access from Central World Department Store makes The Platinum Fashion Mall a must-go for all fashionistas in Bangkok.

The MBK Center in Bangkok is one of the city’s most famous malls among tourists, boasting endless local and overseas brands that attract tourist and locals alike. As a great place to go to escape the heat from outdoors, the mall has eight floors of a wide range of clothes, electronics, jewelry, handbags and accessories to explore. Unlike the other malls and somewhat like the local markets, at MBK, you may find shops that accept your bargain offer.

Beyond the malls, explore the local markets that exude the exotic yet friendly charm of Bangkok. Shop for souvenirs at the Chatujak Weekend Market, or explore the biggest range of fresh fruits and vegetables at the city’s legendary floating market, Klong Lat Mayom. Post your morning of shopping, taste the myriad of street food at stalls that open on weekends, and then end your afternoon with some refreshing drinks at one of the bars that overlook the canal.

Seeking more casual shopping experiences? Pop-up markets or flea markets are very popular among Bangkok’s younger crowds, where you can expect to find trendy pieces from up and coming online shops as well as scrumptious food along the way.

To learn more about pop up markets, explore Bangkok Flea Market or Thai Events, or for more suggestions on shopping in Bangkok, ask your W Insider.
