Top 6 Shopping Attractions in gay BANGKOK for 2019

Temperature controlled malls like MBK offer up every major brand, but the best shopping in Bangkok comes from combing the treasures in the markets’ busy stalls. None is better than the Chatuchak Weekend Market. Here you’ll find more than 8,000 stalls filled with everything from kitschy souvenirs, home décor, local fashion, handmade jewelry, wacky pet supplies and elaborate Asian objects.

1. MBK Shopping Centre

If you’ve got a baht, they’ve got a bargain. Take your Christmas shopping list and go wild in 2,000+ shops over 8 floors of consumer bliss inside this mid-range mall. It’s a real one-stop shop, with everything from gadgets and gizmos, cosmetic curios and branded clothing of iffy provenance. Once you’ve shopped and dropped, why not kick back with a film at the on-site cinema?

2. Siam Paragon mall

What a mall! The experience of shopping at Siam Paragon is like having a Parisian couturier feed you bonbons and take you on a whistle-stop tour of every designer boutique in town. Ball out at Balenciaga, peep in Prada or fan the flames of flamboyance at Louis Vuitton. Cuisine options cover every palate from Thai to beyond – plus there’s a cinema and bowling alley for R&R.

3. Central World Plaza

Along with the Sydney Opera House, the Sydney Harbour Bridge is a vital part of the city’s downtown skyline. Rising 442 feet above the waters of Sydney Harbour, the arched, steel-riddled structure has eight lanes of traffic, plus a pedestrian and bike lane, connecting Sydney’s North Shore with the bustling Central Business District.

If you plan on climbing Sydney Harbour Bridge, expect to spend between 1.5 to 3.5 hours, depending on the length of the climb.

4. Chatuchak Weekend Markets

‘Mark it’ on your calendar – this market is bound to impress! Pack a sun-umbrella to ward off the stifling heat while you shop at 3,500+ open-air speciality stalls. Haggle for a new hat, grab a bolt of floral fabric and have it sewn into a pantsuit, or pick up handicrafts, spa products and more. Thirsty? The locally made coconut ice-cream is mouth-tinglingly
good!

5. Chinatown Market

Squeeze your way past scores of stalls along buzzing Sampeng Lane, in the heart of Bangkok’s Chinatown. Sounds, smells and colours make this a treat for the senses, from the scent of wok smoke and exotic herbs to the colourful fabrics and jewelry on sale. If you’re peckish, try typical Chinese dishes with a Thai twist in one of the street-side restaurants.

5. Khlong Lat Mayom Floating Market

There’s a reason this weekend market is one of Bangkok’s most beloved. Grab a bamboo picnic table and start loading up on fried fish with garlic, chilies and lime juice. Then dig into cold rice vermicelli, oyster omelets, mungbean noodles and freshwater shrimp. If you can tear yourself away from the fantastic food, hop on a boat tour to truly experience the “Venice of the East”.
