List of Shopping Spots in Silom - An Unconventional Shopping Experience in Silom

Widely regarded as Bangkok's match to Wall Street, the business hub that is Silom is also regarded as a shopper's paradise.

1

Patpong Night Market

Patpong Night Market is a popular destination particularly amongst tourists looking to fill up their suitcases with funky, affordable souvenirs and other items characteristic of Thailand. The street of Patpong lies between Silom and Surawong roads. By day, the location is Bangkok's central business district but transforms into one of the city's most vivacious nightlife zones by night. The most determined of shoppers are in store for some serious retail therapy with the abundance of inexpensive fashion items and accessories on offer, from shirts to handbags to underwear and watches. Tourists desiring accommodation for ease of access to the market will come across the typical apartment and hotel Bangkok has to offer in this regard.

Lalai Sap Market

The Lalai Sap Market differs from other Bangkok markets by having almost every kind of item for sale, from street food to fresh veggies, baked goods and affordable clothing and accessories, all sold in the same space. Upon getting closer to the main roads, you'd find carts selling fresh fruits sliced to order, along with freshly brewed Thai-style tea and coffee. A wide range of finger foods like as sai krog or tod mun pla can also be eaten here.

Silom Complex

Silom Complex is comparably smaller than other shopping centres in Bangkok but manages to offer a decent range of international and local boutiques along with a multi-storied central department store. Located a few metres away from Sala Daeng's BTS, the air-conditioned complex is the perfect place for locals and tourists alike to seek refuge from the hustle and bustle of the busy main street. With ample open space and an interesting choice of brands to explore, Silom Complex has something for everyone. Renowned restaurants within the building include Wine Connection, Yayoi Japanese and Piri-Piri Flaming Chicken that are popular among customers. Fancy some Bangkok honey toast? If so, you're in for a treat as the complex has an After You café outlet that is a hit among those with a sweet tooth.

Baan Silom

Baan Silom is an enchanting outdoor complex with a host of eateries, boutiques, brands and beauty clinics centred in a courtyard lined with trees. The complex's immaculate and elaborate wooden verandas and shady avenues are ideal for those looking to stroll around and indulge in some window-shopping. Visitors to the area are afforded an experience that is considerably more pleasant than the generic ambience found in the average multi-story mall. Shopping here emphasises on bespoke and somewhat unconventional products for those looking for something unique. The complex is a favourite amongst couples preparing for their upcoming nuptials as it is said to have the highest concentration of matrimony-related boutiques and offerings in Bangkok.

Robinsons Department Store

Located at the edge of the Silom region, this Bangrak branch of the popular Robinsons Department store boasts a comprehensive range of shopping options; from high-street labels to renowned designer brands, electronic items and numerous eateries on various floors. Outside the mall, shoppers will find a diverse range of fresh fruit stalls and street food vendors that will offer quick and affordable dining options to those in the area. The mall's supermarket offers customers an extensive array of international and branded food items from Europe, Australia and America. All in all, Robinson's Bangrak is a convenient shopping destination for the Silom visitors residing in close proximity to the town, be it at Anantara Baan Rajprasong Bangkok Serviced Suites or elsewhere, in and around Silom.
