A Shopaholics Paradise
Bangkok is dominated by skyscrapers packed with some of the most massive and impressive not only in the region but also the world! While everyone goes to the mall to shop or window shop, going to a mall in Bangkok is a full-on activity, hence considered the hub for shopping. Apart from shopping, you can also enjoy world-class spa treatments, eating, drinking, and all of the best designer shops.
All you shopaholics, grab your bags and head out to these places for an amazing shopping experience.

Siam Paragon is perhaps one of the most famous and biggest shopping malls in Asia. The first thing that’ll grab your attention is a large glass entryway and security greet as you walk into an oasis of shrubbery and fake flowers. If you’re not up for a shopping spree, you could explore the entirety of the mall to see all of the high-end products available. There is also a food court in the basement, as well as an aquarium in the mall.

Terminal 21, Bangkok, brings your dream of travelling the world in one place! It is a one floor one theme shopping mall. Wander around a maze of shops in Tokyo City, bargain in an Istanbul zouk, saunter down London’s Carnaby Street, or grab a bite at Fisherman’s Wharf in San Francisco, all under one roof!

MBK Center is the closest thing that Bangkok has to an indoor street market. The stalls and stores in this mall are lined up similarly to Chatuchak Weekend Market, but without the crowd and, of course, the heat. If you’re looking for a reasonable shopping experience, this is the place for you! MBK sells more than just clothing. Apart from its wide range of goods and clothes to choose from you can find some great souvenirs in the basement of MBK, or the Mini Plaza.

Central World, the tenth largest shopping complex in the world is a massive retail enclave having countless luxury shops, a supermarket packed with some of the best-imported food and drink, and a cinema. Offering everything from brand name clothing boutiques, high-tech gadgets, funky fashion to gourmet eateries and even an ice-skating rink you could easily spend half a day here without realising it.
Mega Bangna is Southeast Asia’s first and biggest low-rise super-size shopping centre and is perhaps more famous for being home to Thailand’s first branch of the IKEA flat-pack furniture store. Apart from home decor, its close proximity to Bangkok’s Suvarnabhumi International Airport makes it the perfect place to break the boredom for those who have a few hours to spare between flights. There is also a wide selection of everyday retail outlets, plus a supermarket, food court, cinema, and bowling alley.
