When you see colourful little figurines, lamp shades of different shapes and sizes, fascinating antique jewellery and basically all items under the sun in the electrifying markets of Bangkok, the shopper inside is surely going to itch. Make your way to one of these markets and satisfy those cravings!

  • Chatuchak Weekend Market

    Filled with a galaxy of irresistible goodies, the Chatuchak Weekend Market may well be described as a milky way of countless shopping treasures. The market is one of the largest on the planet and emerges as a hive of activity. Due to its immense size, it has been divided into different sections devoted to specific goods. Although, these demarcations may not be strictly followed in terms of goods being sold, they do help shoppers find their way in this huge maze like market. Sprawling over some 35 acres, this place has over 8,000 bazaar stalls and is thronged by thousands of keen visitors trying to make the most of their Bangkok shopping experience. Be it dogs and other pets or clothes and antiques, the Chatuchak Weekend Market spoils one for choice and actually brings the phrase, ‘shop till you drop’ to life. To get the best possible deals, bargain as hard as you can. There are plenty of drinks and food stalls here dishing out local Thai fare as well as overseas cuisines for indulging the shoppers who end up ravenous after all that shopping.

  • Patpong Night Market

Night markets are a defining part of the Bangkok shopping scenario and the one at Patpong is amongst the hottest venues for night shopping in the city. Sitting in the heart of one of the most well known nightlife precincts in Bangkok, the market has a highly colourful and electrifying appeal. The raunchiness from the nearby GO-GO bars spills out onto the streets where traders woo visitors with their numerous jazzy wares. A word of caution though, bargain tooth, nail, and claw before succumbing to the temptation of buying something that catches your fancy.

Address: Patpong Soi 1

  • Central World

    This monstrous shopping destination spreads out over some 550,000 square metres and is home to over 500 shops and 100 restaurants. The Zen department store here, which is slated to reopen on a grander scale is a happy hunting ground for trendy fashionistas looking for hot brands. In fact, Central World is really a world of captivating creations from brands such as Jim Thompson silks, Naraya accessories, CPS Chaps and Fly Now III. Similarly, gourmets and gourmands alike can look forward to getting spoilt for choice at the award winning Central Food Hall.

  • King Power

    An awesome combination of duty free shopping and an indescribably exquisite sensuality of the grandly designed King Power makes it another of the highly popular shopping spots in Bangkok. Special promotions and discounts are occasionally thrown in, which makes the place all the more irresistible. Dive into a sea of branded leather products, gleaming jewellery, cosmetics, and electronic goods or sample some authentic Thai culinary delights at the Ramayana restaurant. To add some more fun to your visit here, catch up on some Thai art and culture in the heady environs of the Aksra theatre. Travellers buying Imported goods can pick up their purchases from the airport on the day they plan to leave the country, while domestic goods can be taken away right on the day of purchase. Be sure to carry your flight information and passport as visitors need to furnish these documents while registering at the lobby.

  • Floating Markets

    No shopping spree in Bangkok is complete without an experience of the city’s famous floating markets such as Bang Khu Wiang, Damnoen Saduak, Taling Chan and Tha Kha. A great way to mix shopping with a boating trip and a rich insight into the simple traditional Thai way of life, these floating markets ensure loads of fun. Most of the floating markets have the usual frenetic pace of traditional outdoor bazaars. For, a more serene experience, go to Tha Kha amongst some of other other slightly less frequented floating markets.

Head to these markets to shop for eclectic goodies or handicrafts, but do make sure you bargain while you are at it! Some other markets you can check out are Pantip Plaza, Ámantee and Amulet Market. Do remember me when you are buying gifts for your loved ones! Happy shopping!
