As you may know, Bangkok is a paradise for shoppers. I believe that it would take more than a week to visit every shopping malls and markets in Bangkok. If you are going to visit Bangkok for shopping, here is the list of recommended shopping place areas.
Siam Square and shopping malls around
Siam Square is a popular shopping place for Thai teenagers and young adults. It is an entertainment and shopping area which is full with restaurants, coffee café, trendy clothing and accessory shops. Besides, the area is surrounded by shopping malls such as MBK Center, Siam Discovery Center, Siam Center, Siam Square One, Siam Paragon. If you want to buy luxury products or international brand products, I do recommend Siam Paragon. You can see my review of Siam Square here.
Bangkok Riverside Market
Bangkok Riverside Market is another one of my favorite shopping areas. The best ones are Wang Lang Market and Klong San Market. These two markets are located on the bank of Chao Phraya River and sells cheap and second-hand product. At these two markets, you will see many locals. Besides, I recommend you to try street food over there. Many locals go to these markets in order to eat delicious foods.
The Platinum Fashion Mall and Pratunam Market
The Platinum Fashion Mall and Pratunam Market are the best shopping places for cheap clothing and accessories. The Platinum Fashion Mall is an indoor shopping mall. Pratunam Market is an outdoor shopping market located just opposite The Platinum fashion mall. Many sellers buy products at these two places in order to resell them.
Victory Monument is a huge transportation hub in Bangkok. The three shopping malls (Victory mall, Fashion mall, and Center one) in this area are not big, but they connects to each other with a footbridge. Besides, there are many street shops selling cheap products. You can see my review of the shopping places around Victory Monument here.
Chatuchak Weekend Market
Chatuchak Weekend Market is the biggest outdoor market in Thailand. This market offers you a unique shopping experience. You can buy almost everything you want at this market. Believe me; you need a map and preparation before visiting this market. The review of this market can be found here.
