Pantip Plaza… The IT city

Today I will recommend you an indoor shopping mall named Pantip Plaza, but this one doesn’t sell clothes, handbags, shoes, and accessories like many other malls in town. It is an IT shopping mall where you can buy IT equipment such as computers, laptops, printers, and gadgets. It also sells Software CD’s, MP3 CD’s, and movie DVD’s. Well, please bear in mind that some vendors cannot speak English.

Pantip Plaza has four branches: Pratunam, Ngamwongwan, Chiangmai, and Bangkapi, but I’ve been to only Pratunam branch.

Ten years ago, this mall was very popular, but nowadays it is not crowded anymore. IT equipment including software and gadgets are sold in many big shopping malls in town. However, some people still go to this mall when their computers are broken.

If you live near Pantip Plaza, you might consider visiting this mall. But if you just want to buy CD’s, or DVD’s, I think you can easily find it when you walk in other shopping malls or markets.

Update: February, 2014

Location:  Petchburi Road, Pratunam shopping district. You can go there by getting off the skytrain at Ratchathewi station. Then, walk or take a metered taxi. It takes around 10-15 minutes to walk.

Opening Hours: Most shops are open around 11.00-19.00.
