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?

In Bangkok, you'll find literally anything you could possibly want on sale. Luxury brands like Chanel and Louis Vuitton can be found 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.
