  • Since about 20 my favourite shopping centre. It has almost everything, even if you need anything and nothing looks. You discovered something expensive, cheap, easy failed or practically. By the way, you can go super food. The links are z.B Siam top complex. The renovation also succeeded, brighter more friendly yet old flair. The level of walking under the S-Bahn is also class. A must for any Bangkok visit.

  • It's just one more market that is situated in a building instead of open air. It is packed with people and everything is relatively expensive in comparison to less "mainstream" markets. No recommendat...  more »
  • Thought me great, with many shops, stores, imitations, etc. in summary, a mall or shopping. It was not economical, it was quite normal that you should haggle as elsewhere. There are shops that have marked prices but others did not, especially in technology.

  • Very convenient mall. A bit of everything. Good shopping although you have to bargain or find cheaper shops. Price can be different from one floor to the other or even from shops on the same floor ... the food court is very good and well organize. Different country food available. Recommended.
  • Great mall with lot of small shops on every floor. If someone reading this do remember to.visit all floors before you start shopping. The shops in the middle and not visible easily until you wall are cheaper. A lot of options for boys. For girls chatuchak still a better place .
  • Awesome market, day is less to visit. Electronic to Garments, home decor. Handmade things. Branded to local items. People are helpful. Very big area... Where to start n end. Different floor all together for electronic n watches.
  • Perfect mall with tons of selections for cell phones, locally made t-shirts, pants, knockoff products. It's connected to other malls in the area via bridge. I got my traveller sim card here from AIS, good service and speaks English. Got my contact lenses from one of the shops on the main level. I usually come here to buy all my clothing and they have lasted for years now with frequent wearing.
  • Good place for shopping. Be ready to bargain also. Electronics on 5th floor. Got something for everyone. There is also a taxi pickup station on ground floor behind the mall. But I felt Uber works best in Bangkok. Did not had good experience with local taxi person.

Where to stay in Bangkok

As a commercial, cultural, and tourist center, Bangkok offers a great diversity of accommodations. For long established and chain hotels, try Sukhumvit Road and the areas surrounding the central Siam Square, where budget and luxury rooms are available in abundance. If you are looking for the backpacker zone, head to Khaosan Road, where you'll find a wealth of inexpensive, simple accommodations surrounded by businesses tailored to traveler's needs. Consider staying at a guesthouse to gain a deeper understanding of Thai life.
