BANGKOK: Shop until you Drop!

Bangkok: Shop until you drop!  

If you are one of those types that eat, think and breathe shopping, then Bangkok is the haven for you! This is the city where you can freshen up your own wardrobe or your significant other's and still have money to shop for souvenirs for friends and family! Bangkok is the place to get it all!

Pratunam ประตูน้ำ, is a great place to start! 
You can practice your bargaining skills here! From modern luxury shopping malls, which cater to every shopping desire, to traditional street vendors which sell souvenirs, jeans, t-shirts, etc. To beat the heat many of these markets are comfortably air conditioned. 

Mahboonkrong (MBK) is one of the famous landmarks for shopping in Bangkok. An elevated walking path which connects many of the major shopping areas is very convenient which allows you to avoiding the traffic as well as street crossings. The elevated walking path also connects to the metro "Sky Train" - BTS so there is no need to worry about parking or taking a taxi.

BO BAE MARKET:  More of an insider's secret as it is off the tourist map. Here are where the locals get their bargains and is one of my favourite places to get a real bargain. Travel to this market by using the boat taxis which play along Bangkok's disappearing canals. A unique way to avoid the traffic as well as experience a quicker form of transport in Bangkok.

PUNTHIP PLAZA:  Another insider's secret for any kind of electronic gadget bargain! This place is always packed so come with some patience as well as your wallet!
