Bangkok Shopping

 

One of the great joys of travelling is shopping! and a mecca for cheap shopping is Bangkok. Here are some of our tips on where to go in Bangkok for the best shopping.

 

Bangkok is known to Westerners for many things, but not a lot of people know how great it is for shopping. With shops everywhere, the main shopping district is based around Siam Square. Here you can find several large shops as well as side shops. Ratchaprasong is virtually an icon of Bangkok shopping, providing a district geared towards shopping and tourism.

 

It is adjacent to the Siam District, and in addition to quality shopping it offers a variety of other attractions, including a Hindu/Buddhist shrine, seasonal festival lights, and a host of other sights worth seeing.

Inside Ratchaprasong, you will find Central Chidlom, which is one of Thailand’s biggest retail stores. CentralWorld is the second biggest shopping centre in all of Southeast Asia, and Big C Ratchadamri contains a fitness centre and a 10-screen cinema in addition to the shops it provides. All of these are within walking distance of each other.

 

Once you get to Siam Square, you can expect top shopping experiences from start to finish. It is known as the Shinjuku of Thailand, named for an area in Tokyo that is world-renowned for shopping.

 

With bookshops, designer clothing outlets, and cafés and restaurants serving international and local cuisines, the Siam District of Bangkok is impressive to locals and travellers alike. Within walking distance of the Ratchaprasong District and serviced by the Bangkok Skytrain, the Siam District and the neighbouring Ratchaprasong District are easy to reach no matter how you intend to travel.

 

So, if you’re in the mood for some quality shopping that you’ll enjoy from beginning to end, perhaps Bangkok is the destination for your next holiday, allowing you to experience the height of shopping in the exotic surroundings of Thailand. In addition to the shopping in the capital, tourists can get out and about in other cities around the country. Getting there and away from Bangkok is made easy using planes, buses, vans, trains, or private cars.
