Bangkok Shopping Reviews
Jul 22, 2006
It all depends on what you want really. I would recommend visitng the Chatuchack weekend market (open on Friday (only some vendors opened though) and Saturday and Sunday all vendors are opened). The earlier you go the better. It is an outdoor market so dress accordingly for the weather and make sure to drink LOTS of water. It's huge also so plan to spend some time exploring the place.
If you want some good leathe "knock-off" purses I suggest narayapan. You take the BTS to Chit Lom and should be able to get directions from there.
Two high end shopping malls are Siam Paragon and Emporium. Paragon is fairly new and has a great IMAX theatre. Both places have shopping stores like Gucci, Dior, etc. Great place to people watch. Both places also have a great food court and Paragon has an aquarium.
MBK is also great for shopping. Take the BTS to National Stadium. It's like a 6 story tall building with an air conditioned market inside. You can bargain with some of the shops here. Use your discretion but it's pretty easy to tell where you can and can't bargain. This is a great place to get DVDs.
There are also markets around town from 1100 - 1400 called lunch markets. The two that I know of are near Sukhumvit Soi 1 and there is also one on Soi Lang Suan.
If you have any other questions or want further info on the above please feel free to send me a message.
Good Luck!! Bangkok is a shoppers paradise!!
