Shopping in Bangkok

Shopping in Bangkok

Bangkok is a haven for retail therapy, whether you're looking for traditional handicrafts at a local market or great deals at a massive shopping centre.

What to buy?

There is literally anything you could possibly want on sale here. Find luxury brands like Chanel and Louis Vuitton in the sparkling mega-malls just streets away from market stalls selling their not-necessarily-above-board counterparts. The latest tech gadgets, watches and designer sunglasses for hardcore shoppers, or cheap local designs and handmade trinkets for souvenir-seekers.
