Shopping Areas in Bangkok – The Top Shopping Locales in Bangkok

Bangkok is known for many things but it is particularly renowned as a shopping destination, where all kinds of goods are available for prices you won't find anywhere else in the world.


MBK Shopping Centre

This is by far the most famous mall in Bangkok and for good reason too. The MBK Shopping Centre is like the indoor equivalent of an expansive Thai market. There are more than two thousand shops situated in the eight floors that make up the shopping centre. Within the mall you will discover products ranging from handbags to electronics to DVDs to everything fashion. Ever since the day of the mall's launch, back in 1986, the MBK Shopping Centre has been a bustling epicentre for shoppers. The place has become so popular that even if you're staying at a hotel in Asoke such as the AVANI Atrium Bangkok, they are sure to have the shopping centre listed in one of their activities or excursions.


Siam Discovery Bangkok

A visit to this mall is essential since it offers an absolutely unforgettable experience as far as shopping is concerned. The design and layout of Siam Discovery is unique, where the products in some stores are laid in out in such a welcoming manner you might think you're a guest in someone's residence. In addition to many fashion brands both local and international, Siam Discovery contains some incredible restaurants as well. Jaimie's Italian for example is one of the newest culinary ventures by world-renowned celebrity-chef Jaimie Oliver. On the sixth floor of the mall you will find a Madame Tussauds Wax Museum and a Virgin Interactive Fitness Centre.


Central World Bangkok

The moment you set foot inside this mall you will not be surprised to find that it is the largest mall in Thailand and is also right up there with the biggest malls on planet Earth. Within the walls of Central World you will more or less discover anything you could possibly need ranging from imported groceries, a selection of banks, salons, restaurants and almost any international brand or product under the sun. There are a staggering five hundred stores, a hundred restaurants and even fifteen cinemas.


Pantip Plaza

When it comes to shopping for anything electronic or technological, there's no place better than Pantip Plaza. This is Thailand's most famous mall when it comes to electronics, and many travel from all over the world to make use of the incredible finds and unique products available here. You can also gain some serious savings since you will be buying directly and there will be no added costs to pay.


Siam Paragon

When it comes to high-end shopping, Paragon is one of the best. The name itself is a reference to something that is a model of excellence, and that is what the mall is. Despite having a very compact design, the mall boasts a selection of two-hundred-and-fifty shops. The brands that are found in the mall are some of the finest in luxury products with names such as Versace, Chanel, Bvlgari and Louis Vuitton. There are even several car showrooms located here including Ferrari, Lamborghini and Aston Martin. This is the pinnacle of luxury shopping.
