Bangkok is indeed a shopping heaven. Shopping in Bangkok is an activity that runs parallel with the best in the West, while also giving a flavour of the cultural uniqueness of the East. Work your way through these ten entirely different experiences, and you’ll soon come to realize why Bangkok is such a famous shopping hub. Things there are so ridiculously cheap!! I went crazy shopping.
1 The Platinum Fashion Mall
The Platinum Fashion Mall is Thailand largest wholesale & Retail shopping Destination. With over 2,500 retailers, The Platinum Fashion Mall capable of catering to all fashion needs from head to toe with a complete range of stylish products from ladies' wear, menswear and children's clothing to shoes, handbags and accessories as well as cosmetics, souvenirs and many more. Many of the shops inside will give you a discount if you buy more than 1 to 5 items. There are some room for barging on more expensive items. Unfortunately, there is no trying in these shops since most of the clothes are free-sized .
Opening Hours: 10:00 - 22:00

BTS: The nearest Skytrain station is Chidlom
2 Rod Fai Market
Rod Fai market is an authentic open-air bazaar selling an incredible array of fashion apparels, food, mobile accessories , bags , household goods and etc. Combine with cool restaurants, bars and snack stalls will chill out your night. Take BTS to On Nut station and then catching a taxi from there as traffic is bad especially on Friday and Saturday. Try to ask for meter taxi as it only cost 100 baht (if bad traffic) to Rod Fai market.

You might notice some strange and unique collection by the traders different section, namely the ‘Market Zone’, ‘Warehouse Zone’ and ‘Rod’s Antiques’. Rod Fai market really big and don't miss the 3 different section and offer unique shopping experience. Prices are low and bargaining is allow. Explore and enjoy the sightseeing, stop at some stall and try all the delicious snacks that are scattered throughout.

Terminal 21 is different other high end shopping mall and it has become one of my favourite shopping mall. Each floor at Terminal 21 has a different theme based on various cities around the world.
- Lower Ground Floor (Caribbean)
- Ground Floor (Rome)
- Mezzaine Floor (Paris)
- 1st Floor (Tokyo)
- 2nd Floor (London)
- 3rd Floor (Istanbul)
- 4th Floor / 5th Floor (San Francisco)
- 6th Floor (Hollywood)
Up in the Tokyo and London sections, smaller brands can be found in compact spaces. Ladies can hit Tokyo for more than 100 beauty and clothing stores, and men can go up another floor to London for their own fashion needs. My fiancee get custom make suit for our pre- wedding for only 6900 baht. Thanks to +kakalina wak for the recommendation. He also bought Muay Thai T-shirt for only 250 baht and the T-shirt quality is good. It hardly for us to bargain with the shop owner.

5 Century The Movie Plaza

Maybe some of you not familiar with Century The Movie Plaza. I found this place interesting for dinning and shopping. It easier to access by BTS and stop at Victory Monument station. I manage to grab some accessories like earring for 29 baht and hand craft items for 20 baht to 40 baht. You also would love to visit their Beauty Buffet Shop as they also a high quality of skincare and cosmetic for reasonable price around 25 baht to 400 baht. During evening time you will saw some stalls selling clothes, accessories or shoes outside the mall. The price is more cheaper if compare to Platinum fashion mall. Tips: the size on the clothes is smaller by one size. If you usually wear M, you have to buy bigger one size or else it can fit on you. You can bargain for a good price if you buy more than 2 pieces of cloth.
|I bought this for 180 baht|
|Buy 5 free 1 and only cost me 145 baht|
|5 pairs of sock for 100baht|
