In Bangkok Shopping Malls are virtually everywhere! The variety of shopping experiences in Bangkok goes far beyond a stroll in a mall or a morning spent browsing a market. Shopping in Bangkok is a hard day-and-night activity that runs parallel with the best in the West, while also giving a flavour of the cultural uniqueness of the East.
Work your way through these malls each with entirely different experiences, and you’ll soon come to realise why Bangkok is such a famous shopping hub.
Bangkok’s multitude of modern, multi-storey shopping malls are a shopaholic’s paradise. From the legendary MBK, to the sophisticated Emporium, trendy Siam Discovery and Central World Plaza, or unashamedly upscale Siam Paragon, Bangkok’s accommodate every taste, pocket and style. The latest addition to the city’s ‘mallscape’ is the innovative Terminal 21 and Central Plaza Rama 9.
These malls are where you’ll find the city’s finest fashion stores, global brands, book shops, speciality stores, accessories stands and all kinds of luxury designer lifestyle goods. Not only are you spoiled for choice; it’s all super easy to navigate.
Modern and air-conditioned, they’re also a pleasant alternative to the bustling hot markets, and most complexes are easily accessible via the city’s modern and efficient Skytrain (BTS) system. Just don’t forget to sport comfortable shoes.
