Not sure what you mean by branded clothes (expensive or cheap?), but you are at a good location as Robinson Dept Store is just right at the corner. Emporium Mall has another dept store, shops and restaurants. Siam Paragon is another high end mall. MBK sells cheap stuffs and souvenirs. If you get a Bangkok map at the airport or at your hotel, you can see that all of these malls are accessible by BTS skytrain.

Definitely better to do all your shopping in Bangkok. Phuket and Pattaya have resort price!

You can find everything at the MBK center and around the area...save the shopping for the last day in Bangkok so that you do not have to travel all over the place with the goods. Most goods that are sold in Phuket and Pattaya comes from wholesale distributors in Bangkok. Cheers Tommy x

Travel Tips for Bangkok

Best time to visit

by heryanta

In my humble opinion the best time to visit Bangkok is January - February. In these two months the temperature is around 24C (75F) and mostly dry.

April - May are the hottest months where temperature gets to be 38C (100F).

September-November you get a lot of rain; which in itself is not a problem but the road gets flooded and it compounds to the horrendous traffic jams that is an inseparable part of Bangkok.

Everywhere You Turn... There Are Tourists Around

by anne_vdns

My title speaks for itself.... everywhere you turn in Bangkok, there are tourists around. Whether the BTS Stations, inside the train, the malls, the bazaars, the temples, I do mean everywhere. Foreign languges fly in air. We feel very comfortable around Thai people because they do not seem to mind us at all. They do not look at us, thinking... not another tourist. I will miss the BTS and the shopping areas here.

River Cruise - Portugese Embassy

by Audrey118

This was built in 1820...it is the only other remaining embassy on the river
It is first western embassy in Bangkokl. The building was a palace of an exile Vietnamese King before the King Rama II gave it to the Portugese in 1820.

The "Wai"

by KilgoreTrout

This is a real minefield!

The "Wai" is the Thai greeting where the hands are pressed together prayer-like and raised to chest/nose/forehead level. You will almost certainly be "wai'd" at one time or another, for example in hotels (well, the better ones!) and restaurants.

I have found from experience, advice from Thai friends etc, that a non-Thai is probably best advised generally NOT to attempt to return a "wai", but to smile and nod respectfully in return.

The "wai" is really a fiendishly complex thing, invested with fine cultural nuiances. Who wais first, if the wai is returned, the way the hands are moved together, the point the hands are brought up to (chest, face etc.) are all important.

Generally, Thai people will understand a foreigner not wai-ing. Probably better to opt out rather than risk the inevitable inappropriate or clusy wai!

Door Drawings and Lengths of String

by Bangkokjoe

In some more local (i.e. non international) restaurants, hotels, shops, you are more than likely to see door blessing yantras, and talismans. These have been put there in a ceremony by monks and are to bring blessings, luck and fortune to the mob doing their work inside.

At the time of openng a business it is quite the norm for the monks to "tie a bit of string" around the premises as well, sticking "the string" to the walls and ceilings and ensuring the whole place is bound and therefore keeping its spirit in, neat and complete. If you see stray bits of string hanging around your walls don't be a muppet like I was when I first got here and suggest this old bit of thread should be removed. No. The "string" stays there until it almost drops off, rots, or mysteriously dispapears when no one but the cleaner knows.
