Bangkok is well known for its shopping possibilities. In fact, many would say it is the city's national pastime! And for those who want to indulge, downtown Bangkok is the best spot to do it in, with an incredible array of all the best shopping centers and malls to fulfill any shopper's cart. Here you will find the ultra luxury new Central Embassy Mall, as well as upscale Gaysorn Plaza, home to the highest end designer goods, located near to Bangkok's two most renowned shopping meccas; Siam Paragon and Central World. While you are here, it doesn't take more than a few minutes walk to pop into the user friendly Siam Center as well as Siam Discovery, which play second fiddle to the mega malls perhaps in name only. For wholesale clothing at fantastic prices, the outdoor Pratunam Market is an excellent choice. If electronics are what you are after, Pantip Plaza, the city's electronics center, is just another half block away. If you are looking for outdoor gear or sporting goods, don't forget to check out the less visited Amarin Plaza, which always seems to have mega sales going on. Whatever you are after, you can be sure to find it when out shopping in downtown Bangkok.
