Shopping Break On Your Own
Visiting: Bangkok, Pratunam, Pantip Plaza
Duration: 6 hours
It’s no secret that Bangkok is an absolute paradise for shoppers, with everything from Thai antiques to the latest designer goods on sale, and all at very reasonable prices.
Your Bangkok shopping spree begins with a pick up from your port of call and transport in our air-conditioned minivan to the immense Central World shopping plaza. Not only is this area home to the sixth largest shopping mall in the world, but there are also smaller malls, such as Siam Paragon, Siam Center and MBK located just nearby. There’s a Skytrain (BTS) station at Central World, so if you don’t want to walk between the malls in the heat, you can just jump on the Skytrain and be at your next shopping destination in no time.
If you want to get a more local atmosphere, head into the Pratunam area nearby, overflowing with street markets, bazaars and fashion factory outlets. Or if you’re looking for IT goods, you can’t go past a trip to the Pantip Plaza shopping mall where you can find every imaginable IT item at rock-bottom prices.
Because of the close proximity of the shopping malls, it's easy to get between them, and you can spend as long or as short a time at each, depending on your shopping desires. Just remember to be back at Central World by 4pm, where your driver will meet you and return you safely to your port of call.
