Shopping in Thailand
Hard to believe but Bangkok, Thailand has more luxury shopping per square mile than the affluent city of London!
Beautiful shopping complexes like Siam Paragon, Terminal 21 and Emporium offer great options when you want to shop, wine, dine, watch the latest movies in modern movie theatres or just get out of the heat.
Cell Phones, Cable/Satellite TV and Internet
Mobile phone stores such as Samsung and Thai branded stores are found everywhere in Bangkok. It is easy to get a SIM card or inexpensive phone to have a local number while in Thailand.
Unlimited options are available for any kind of electronics you may be looking for. Shopping malls and large tech store offer the latest TVs, laptops, tablets, smart phones etc. or check out Bangkok’s Fortune and Pantip Plaza Electronics markets. There you will find an endless labyrinth of shops offering everything you could imagine, usually at a great price.
Clothes and Shoes
Bangkok is a fashion shopping paradise. Ultra-modern shopping malls offer a wide variety of name brand clothes and shoes from the reasonably priced to the extremely high-end. For more of a local experience, take a walk around the area of Pratunam in central Bangkok. This clothing district has wholesale, retail and custom clothing available at unbelievable prices.
Eating out or having a coffee
Starbucks is probably the most recognisable coffee brand you’ll find in Bangkok; however, there are tons of outstanding coffee shops, bakeries and sweetshops found throughout the city.
