The Platinum Fashion Mall are famous for the shoppers both foreigners and locals, while Union Mall might be famous among locals only. Both places have several shops selling clothing and accessories. In this blog post, I intend to compare these 2 shopping places in several aspects. So, if you do not have time and cannot choose between The Platinum Fashion Mall and Union Mall, this blog post might help.
Both Platinum and Union Mall are indoor market. You do not have to worry about the hot weather or the sunshine. You can shop at these two places all day long!
Platinum Mall consists of 3 zones in 2 big buildings, while Union Mall is only one building. For me, it is possible to look around all shops in Union Mall within one day, but impossible to do so in Platinum.
Both Platinum Mall and Union Mall specializes for fashion items such as clothing, shoes, handbags, purses, and so on.
Both Platinum Mall and Union Mall accepts bargaining. If you buy more, you will get discount. However, if you want to buy wholesale products, I do recommend Platinum Mall. It is a wholesale mall, but you can buy one piece there!
Both Platinum Mall and Union Mall are open daily. You can see more detail in my reviews.
Union Mall can be reached by subway (MRT). Just get off at Phahon Yothin station and take exit 5.
Platinam Mall cannot be reached by both BTS Skytrain and MRT Subway. You have to get off at either Chidlom station or Ratchathewi station. Then, walk around 15-20 minutes or take a taxi.
Update: May 2017 Recently we have a new skywalk connecting between Chidlom BTS Station and Platinum Mall. So it is more convenient ( You can read more detail here)
