Budget Shopping in Bangkok
Platinum Fashion Mall
This is my #1 choice and I make it a point to spend few hours in this mall every time I visit Bangkok. Platinum has different sections and floors for each category – shoes, accessories, women’s/men’s fashion and handicrafts.

Chinatown is the great option to indulge in a more local and traditional shopping experience. It’s the perfect contrast to the mega malls that are pooping out like mushrooms elsewhere in the city. The whole thing is kind of all over the place, but there are specific sections for some stuff. Head to Yaowarat Road to check the gold vendors, Balanna Plaza for all kind of shoes (beware of fakes!) and Itsaraphap Lane for food items.

Just opposite Platinum mall is this bustling street market with hoards of vendors selling wholesale clothes, shoes and accessories all day long. This is one of the best street shopping options but in Bangkok, be very careful with your money as pick pocketing is very common.
Bangkapi Mall and Adjoining Markets
Bangkapi mall offers a wide variety of clothes, accessories and shoes in a huge indoor mall. Alongside restaurants and fancy lounge areas. The mall itself has branded showrooms but you can still find discounted deals and amazing deals sometimes. However, the best part are the outside stores in an open area called the Tavanna market. You would often find better bargains and variety outside.

Mid-Range Shopping Malls in Bangkok
MBK shopping center is the most popular mid-range option for travelers and locals. It tops the list of best malls in Bangkok, hands down. With over 2000 shops to choose from and few budget stalls as well, it drives a lot of shoppers looking for pocket friendly goods, without having to rummage through narrow lanes. Spread across 8 huge floors, it is a shopaholics dream.This mall has everything from clothing to electronics and even food court and supermarket.

Central world plaza is one of those more spacious malls. You can choose from two major department stores of 500+ shops for your shopping pleasures. The rates are definitely higher than MBK but the quality is by far superior. Plus, if you head to the back of department stores, they often have sales at throwaway prices (when they have a few pieces of a style left).

Terminal 21 makes it to my list simply for the unique factor. Each floor is designed keeping different city markets across the world in mind. So every floor has its own unique city theme – Paris, Rome, Caribbean, Tokyo, London, Istanbul and San Francisco.
Luxury Shopping Options in Bangkok
With over 250 shops, Siam Paragon is another very popular shopping mall in Bangkok. Displaying the top-notch high-end fashion brands, it is mainly targeted to luxury shoppers with cash to splurge.
The Siam Center is one of my favourite places to shop in Bangkok. Every time I go I feel like I’ve walked in to a really quirky art gallery. Nearly every shop window display is packed with vibrant fashion. Here you’ll find a huge range of designers you’ve probably never heard of before, mixed in with a few well known ones, like Charles & Keith, my favourite shoe store in Asia.
A newly refurbished shopping centre, The Emporium is full of class and elegance. This is your go-to place for anything designer, so it’s fabulous for a spot of window shopping. Everything is perfection at The Emporium. Even the ‘Gourmet Market’ supermarket has gold trollies!
