Places To Shop While In Bangkok

Shopping can be fun, especially in Bangkok. However, first-timers are often daunted by the many choices and may not have time to do much research before getting on the plane to Thailand. We’ve narrowed down the list for you.

An homage to the Shibuya district in Tokyo, Shibuya 19 Shopping Mall in Bangkok is a six storey complex with stores selling trendy, fashionable clothes for men and women at discount prices. Bargaining is common here, so don’t be shy. The mall is a 10-minute walk from either Ratchatewi or Chit Lom BTS Station.

Narin Couture

For finely tailored clothes, try Narin Couture. Khun Narin spent years fine-tuning his trade at “École de la Chambre Syndicale de la Couture Parisienne” in France, a fashion school whose alumni list includes Yves Saint Laurent and Issey Miyake. A suit (two-piece) starts at 10,000 baht and takes about two weeks to finish; women’s dresses depend on fabric and style. The shop is located near the Nana BTS Skytrain station.

The owner has a passion for bags, in particular the Hermes Kelly and Birkin. New arrivals come in weekly, and regular clients sometimes request hard-to-find, incredibly expensive bags. The shop is located on Phahon Yothin Road.

Located in Gaysorn Plaza, Senada has a vintage, hipster vibe. Chanita Preechawitayakul, the founder of the brand believes that “fashion is a lifestyle expression”, and this vision comes through in her collections. Her designs are memorable, and are inspired by patterns of everyday objects and nature such as vintage wallpaper and the night sky.

Named for its resemblance to an airport terminal and its location at Sukhumvit 21, Terminal 21 is connected with the BTS Asoke and MRT Sukhumvit stations. While the selection of stores are similars to those found in other malls, Terminal 21 is worth visiting just for the themed levels – each floor is based on a different city around the world.
