While Pratunam is not a shopping mall or department store proper, it is a fascinating outdoor market area that features hundreds of small clothing stalls selling at highly discounted prices, and is especially good for wholesale. If you are looking for some affordable clothing for Christmas presents for yourself or others, you can get some great bargains here, but it's best if you buy in bulk. Located smack downtown, it is full of stalls that take up the alleyways between the Baiyoke Tower and Petchaburi Road and are home to an endless array of shops, some covered and others out in the open street, selling mostly clothing, along with silver, jewelery, and other fashion accessories. You will be hard pressed to walk in here, as not only are the aisles incredibly narrow and packed with shoppers, but they are also full of food vendors and street sellers, making for the quintessential Asian street market experience. It's worth braving the crowds here just for the atmosphere, not to mention cheap clothing.
