Way out of my salary grade of course :p but if you have the money and want to make use of the VAT return - you know where to shop :)
Well if the MBK shopping centre was my idea of shopping heaven, then I was quickly brought back down to earth by the Gaysorn Plaza. This was my shopping hell. Never have I visited such a yuppy area, the shops were spaced out, pricey and had a definate target audience of the c2matuc's (care 2 much about themselves upper class) among us. I felt rather out of place in my board shorts and anti-Blair tee. :(
What to pay: a lot

As you may guess, the pricetags are hefty and haggling doesn't get you anywhere. So don your wallet with those credit cards that have no limits or have a wad of money as thick as your wrist, and have a ball.

Switzerland is home for many other things that watches and cheeses; Bally is a high fashion house originated from there, and nowadays found in every continent of the world.
The Bally design is very subtle, and you need to be a real connoisseur to recognise their clothes on everyday situations. You probably just wonder that where that guy got those good looking garments...
One of Bangkok's Bally stores is located in Gaysorn Plaza, among other high fashion brands. The smallish store has quite a good selection of bags and shoes, and there are some garments and accessories, too.
If you bought a bit too much of stuff from all shopping malls in Bangkok, consider visiting Tumi store on Gaysorn Plaza for some extra storage for the trip back home.
Tumi has been moving towards more upscale luggage, and it shows in the store. First, it is located in the same shopping mall with Gucci, Prada and Bally (to name a few), and the pricetag has gradually been lifted. Fortunately, the style has improved, too, and nowadays you won't be ashamed having Tumi luggage.
The smallish store had a few series of luggage, in different price categories. There were also some travelling accessories, such as money belts, pouches and so forth.
If you would like to buy wood-carvings and other traditional thai-products, you should go to the Gaysorn. It's a mall where you can find labels such as Bally, DKNY and Prada (and they are real ones!). If you go to the upper floors you can find very reasonable priced and of good quality wood-carvings and other traditional thai-products made by hand. This is one of my favourite places if I want to buy something really nice for my home.
There is a Planet Hollywood in the mall but I don't recommend it. The food was utterly bad, especially the lasagne.
There really is so much shopping in Bangkok-you will be quite spoiled. If you are interested in shopping at malls (gaysorn, mbk, isetan and robinsons-then you should head to siam square (bts stops siam and chitlom) There are also small shops around this area.
Chatuchak market is an amazing variety of items. There are other evening markets throughout the city. There is the night market by Lumphini Park (more upscale, but prices show it). There is the patpong market-which sells shirts, photo albums, cushion covers and other things. Some people will dress in various hilltribe oufits to sell their wares.
