Bangkok is a shopaholic’s tropical paradise, and mega-malls offer a welcome, air-conditioned retreat from the hot tropical weather. This is where Thais spend their weekends, and it can be a chance to relax or dress to the nines depending what you’re into. Whether browsing, dining at restaurants or taking in a movie, Bangkok’s biggest shopping complexes offer an entire day’s itinerary in just a single building. In contrast, there are also plenty of boutique malls and niche shopping centres – so whatever you’re looking for, whether it’s designer jewellery or that designer bag, it’s only ever just a BTS ride away.
