It boasts active night life and many adventure-seekers' attractions. If you do not have time for all this, perhaps you should try shopping in the following popular shopping destinations:
1. Chatuchak Market
With over 200,000 visitors a day, this is the market of markets. A popular saying in Thailand is that 'if it is not sold in Chatuchak, then it is not available in Thailand'. The market was opened in 1982 and covers 35 acres. It has up to 15,000 stalls. Among the things you can buy there include collectibles, foods, religious artifacts, clothing, household items and many more. It is located on Kamphaeng Phet 2 Road, Chatuchak, Bangkok.
For the absolute Thai shopping experience, no destination beats Asiatique by the riverside. It has over 1500 boutiques and over 40 restaurants. It is located about 10 minutes downriver from Saphan Taksin BTS station. Get yourself to Wat Phraya Krai, Bang Kho Laem, Bangkok, Thailand; and have your greatest shopping experience yet
3. Pantip Plaza
If you are a tech geek, then there is no better place than this in Thailand to shop. It has all kind of electronics from the latest laptops, cameras, computers to radios TVs etc. It is easy to miss it because it is located on a rather bare building along Petchaburi Road.
4. Siam Paragon
High tech gizmos, sports cars, home appliances, home decor, etc. are some of the things you can find at this gigantic shopping mall. It is home to cafes, restaurants, bookshops, Paragon Cineplex etc. It is located along Rama 1 Rd, Pathumwan, 991, Bangkok 10330, Thailand.
