shopping in Bangkok 4 - Pratunam Phetchaburi Road Suan Lum Night Bazaar Sukhumvit Thewet Woengnakhon Khasem

Pratunam/Phetchaburi Road Areas

- It is an all-time clothes-selling mall, but today’s teens prefer buying at Platinum instead. SiamSquare is also another very good place to take a look!

“The area is best known for inexpensive ready-made clothing, which is sold partly in a street market where bargaining is the order of the day. Major hotels include the Amari Watergate and the
Indra Regent. A few hundred metres west along Phetchaburi Road from the Amari Watergate Hotel and across the street, is an enormous computer goods establishment called Pantip Plaza for
the cyber-connoisseur, devoted to hardware, software and other electronic goods. It offers incredibly good value. This is a place to spend a whole day in, the true Aladdin’s cave for computer geeks. Not only can visitors buy a brand-name computer and a tailormade computer assembled on the spot with very low prices, but they can also buy second-hand computers and have their computer repaired for a very reasonable price. As in all Thai plazas, there is good food to eat, too. Also in this area is Baiyoke Tower II, the highest edifice in Bangkok with buffet restaurants on the 77th and 78th floors that offer a spectacular panorama of the city. Around its base, there are many small markets and shopping streets to explore.”

Suan Lum Night Bazaar

– It’s okay if you like, but I won’t buy things here! + Recommended Thai Puppet shows

Suan Lum Night Bazaar is located on the east side of Lumphini Park. It is a big new place for shoppers to spend their time and money shopping at night from 5.00 p.m. to 12.00 p.m. The large area has many restaurants, pubs, beer gardens, and stalls (fashionable clothes, handicrafts and handmade products, mostly OTOP). There are traditional small Thai puppet shows (Tel. 0 2252 9683-6) and the BEC-TERO Hall where visitors can catch internationally famous classical, rock and pop concerts and iceskating shows.”

Patpong Night Bazaar

Sukhumvit Area
– Hotels & Shopping Malls, Shopping Markets
“This long thoroughfare is Bangkok’s major artery and its major hotels include the Landmark, Ambassador and Sheraton Grande. The major shopping areas are concentrated between Soi
Nana (Sukhumvit 3) and Sukhumvit 24 and there is a thriving street market. A variety of shops, shopping centres, plazas and department stores including Robinson and the Emporium (mostly imported brand-name merchandise) offer a great range of choices to buyers. Also, check out H1 on Sukhumvit Soi 55, a very hip place for a trendy lifestyle in Bangkok, which has a shop with imported furniture from Italy , a graphic bookshop, restaurants and home-made ice cream. The area is a group of white buildings surrounded by trees and bushes.”
