Many people find Bangkok to be an assault on their senses with so many people, traffic, noise, and smells. However, if you like shopping, this is an ideal destination, as there are plenty of places where you can shop in luxury in the many air-conditioned shopping malls. If shopping is your passion and you want to partake in your pastime when visiting Bangkok, here is what you can expect when you are there.
A Comfortable Way To Shop
To get out of the oppressive heat in Bangkok and enjoy some air-c0nditioned luxury, you can head to one of the many shopping malls in the city. No matter where you are staying, you will be close to a shopping mall that will have a wide variety of different shops, restaurants, and ways to pass some time. You can use a website like Trip Advisor to find the best shopping malls close to your hotel, and your hotel can arrange a taxi for you unless you are staying close to t a BTS or MRT station. If it is designer goods you are looking for, you may wish to consider heading to EmQuartier or Emporium, and these are close to Phrom Pong BTS station.
Shopping For Jewellery In Bangkok
Bangkok is one of the primary hubs in South East Asia, and the world, for high-quality jewellery and gemstones, meaning there are lots of choices available. There are many independent jewellery shops that you can visit, and some of the work done by these skilled artisans can blow your socks off. Silver is much more affordable than gold, and if you find and like some 925 sterling silver earrings, wholesale prices are often available if you buy in bulk and get a few pairs. Whatever style of jewellery you are after, there is something for all tastes and budgets in Bangkok, and you can even get something bespoke created especially for you.
Homeware & Decorations
If you are looking for something for the home, there are also plenty of choices available for you, and you do not have to worry about getting it in your suitcase as you can use a shipping service to send it home. Although there are plenty of options available in Bangkok’s many shopping malls, a visit to the weekend market, which is the largest open-air market in the world, is an excellent place to find unique treasures that will look perfect in your home. You will also find the prices are often lower at markets than in a shopping mall, and there are many different markets throughout the city you can visit, and Trip Advisor lists them all.
