Bangkok can teach you the true meaning of “Shop till you drop” (or “till you go broke.”) Shopping here is 24/7-from the streets to shopping malls. Shopping in Bangkok relies much on how physically (and $$$) fit you are. Besides, you can enjoy different styles of shopping from traditional street bargains to the modern credit card transactions.

In my Bangkok shopping section, you’ll be informed about where and when locals go for shopping. Meaning, you’ll shop for the goodies no different than the Bangkok shoppers. I’ll tell you where and when the sales and promotions are available in Bangkok. So, be sure to keep your eyes wide open while reading.

The shopping attractions I have listed below are based on uniqueness, Thainess, size, and popularity. Most important, all of them are based on your ease of self-travel. So pick your preferred shopping attractions and enjoy shopping like the Bangkok shoppers!
