While everyone goes to the mall to shop, or at least window shop, in Bangkok, going to the mall is a full on activity. While the heat and humidity outside make wandering the city downright oppressive at times, the shopping malls are a complete contrast, offering plenty of cool air, and lots of places to sit and relax. It's not only shopping that goes on in these spots, but world class spa treatments, eating, drinking, and all of the best designer shops. Check out the city's latest opulent offering, the snazzy EmQuartier, which features a waterfall, some of the highest end shops in town, and even an entire set of floors dedicated to fine dining. Another relatively new mall, Central Embassy, features the city's most upscale cinema, the Embassy Diplomat, along with great restaurants to go with all the high end brand shops. It's worth coming here just to gape at the architecture. Other stalwarts like Siam Paragon, Terminal 21, and CentralWorld also all have luxury cineplex theatres, tons of dining options, and plenty to do other than just shop. For more specific items you'll need to head to specific malls. For electronics needs, make a beeline for Pantip Plaza, for mobile phones, head to MBK, and for high end designer goods, Gaysorn is a fine choice. If you want cheap fashion accessories and clothing, or a great selection of baby and children's clothing, head to Platinum Fashion Mall. All of the Central Malls, from CentralWorld to Central Chidlom, are renowned for their gourmet markets with food and drink from around the world. From the cool air spots to beat the heat to finding a rainy day escape, Bangkok's malls are pretty much unrivalled.
