5 Hidden Shopping Spots in Bangkok

The Smart Local recently shared a post on Bangkok shopping guide. In case you missed it, you can view it here http://www.thesmartlocal.com/read/bangkok-shopping.

 

Known as the most populous city in Thailand, Bangkok offers an array of night markets and shopping locations. Thus if you’re looking to do your pre-wedding photo shoot in Thailand, here are some tourist attractions that you could visit during your free time as well. After all, what better way than to kill two birds with one stone?

We’re all aware of the famous shopping locations such as Chatuchak market, Platinum mall etc, but here are some new night markets and other shopping spots you might be interested in.

 

Union Mall

Similar to Platinum Fashion Mall, Union Mall is a great place for those who are looking for fashionable and cheap buys. Couples can definitely consider this mall because it also provides variety for the men. Moreover it’s more spacious with bigger walkways and unlike Platinum Mall where majority of the shops carry the same thing, each shop at Union Mall offers unique clothing and is not seen repeated in other shops.

Another good thing to note is that Union Mall is just a stop away from Chatuchak Market. Thus you could plan your itinerary to cover these two destinations in a day to save on travelling time.

 

Address: Ladprao Soi 1, Bangkok, Thailand 10900

MRT: Phahon Yothin (Exit 5)

Opens Daily, 11am – 10pm

This one’s for the indie lovers! 1.6-kilometer-long swathe of road that displays collectible Lego, auto spares, classic movie posters and kickknacks for home. For the music lovers, be sure to visit the stalls with old turntables and impromptu gigs. Be amazed by the variety of nostalgic sweets and toys, secondhand apparel, Harley-Davidson collectibles, comic books, porcelain kitchenware and so much more. And when you decide to rest, have a drink at one of the pop-up bars.

If you’re looking to escape from the “hipness” of the city, consider driving a little further out of town to this market whose name in Thai means “the market along the expressway”. In Bangkok, this is as down-to-earth as night markets get.

Moreover if you’re looking for copycats, this is the place for you. Expect the variety of Chinese-produced G Shocks, monogram-patterned Louis Vuitton counterfiets and New Balance sneakers. Nonetheless fret not, you’ll also find corners filled with vintage looking bric-a-brac, old-school sweets and artsy tote bags as well.

 

Where: Opposite Tawandang German Brewery (Ramintra Branch), near Watcharapon Junction.

Opens Daily, 5pm – 2am
