    at the 6th floor of ther Platinum Mall, in the area of the Food Court, going to the elevators, there is a small stall selling assorted Thai and Chinese Dried stuffs, ranging from spicy pork rinds, pork floss, rice crackers with chili, dried fruits, snack foods and more. the name of the stall is in thai, so i could not know the stall name, but again, it is just across the drugstore going to the elevators of the 6th floor. this stall is really popular for tourists like us as we buy assorted thai and chinese delicacies to taste and bring home.

    opens: 10:00 am to 8:00 pm everyday.

    What to buy: rice cracker with sesame seeds at 50 baht a pack, dried squid rings at 115 baht a pack, 100 grams of assorted thai dried fruit at 80 to 120 baht, depending on the kind of dried fruit. and a lot more choices.

    What to pay: not a dent on your wallet

    Platinum Mall: The Mall for Wholesale Bargains

    This will be my platinum mall shopping tips. Being just across my hotel at the Amari Watergate and also eyeing to buy some souvenirs to my friends, I have to go to this mall!

    If you are a hard core shopper of bulk items at wholesale prices without the inconvenience of hot and humid shopping like in the Chatuchak Weekend Market or the Pratunam Market and the Markets around Baiyoke and Indira Regent Hotel, then the Platinum Mall is the place to be. The mall is the centerpiece of the Pratunam shopping area of Bangkok where you can shop in air conditioned comfort and at low prices for wholesale items. The Mall has over 2,000 small stalls that sell wholesale items and this mall is a favorite not only of the local thais but also other south east asian nationalities as the prices here are very affordable. They have 8 zones at 6 floors of shopping heaven, named after famous shopping areas of the world. they even have a big food court inside.

    Opens: 10:00 am to 8:00 pm everyday

    What to buy: among the items that you can buy at the platinum mall include: children’s wear, adolescent clothing, jeans, evening dresses, underwear and oversized clothing to wigs, belts, shoes, handbags, hats and cosmetics, women’s fashion and accessories, mens clothes, leather, local crafts, souvenir items, imported fashion from Korea, Hong Kong, Japan, China, India, as well as niche fashion, such as oversized clothes, elderly lady’s fashion, chiffon dresses, cowboy clothes, costumes, and more.

    What to pay: haggling is a must when buying here and also they give more discounts if you buy three or more of the same items (like buying 3 or more chang beer t-shirts, originally at 180 baht per piece, they will lessen it to 150 baht or up to 140 baht if you buy more than 8 pieces).

    Platinum Mall: Shopping galore!

    Platinum Mall at night

    Just a walking distance from the Pratunam market is the Platinum Fashion Mall, and whoa! This mall is like the exact place where all fashionistas head at!
    I think it's better to call it "The "F" Mall".

    I can actually say that Platinum Mall is the 168 Mall version here in the Divisoria market.

    I bought 3 kinds of clothes and 1 backpack with a stuff toy attached on it! Oh, you shouldn’t miss this place!

    What to buy: Various types of men’s and ladies’ wear can be seen! You won’t get tired finding your ideal style!!!

    I think the clothes being sold in the malls in Manila were bought here! There's a discount if you'll buy wholesale, like, let's say you want to buy 3 pcs or more of a dress, you can have it sold by 10% less than the actual price, great right!?

    Aside from clothes, there are also bags, accessories, gift items etc. shops in every floors.

    What to pay: The shops accept only cash.

    Platinum Mall: Every girls' favourite

    by voodo0 Updated Apr 4, 2011

    Platinum Fashion Mall. Every girls' favourite mall...A relatively new shopping center in the Petchburi area, Platinum Fashion Mall caters especially to wholesale clothing, selling a similar range of clothing to the Pratunam Market across the street, except in air-conditioned comfort. The mall has six floors which are filled with small outlets - most of them specialising in women's clothing and fashion accessories.

    What to buy: .

    What to pay: Since this is a wholesale mall, you can get items at very reasonable prices - provided you buy larger quantities, usually three items and up. Some of them are kind enough to give one wholesale price even if u only buy one piece. Just remember to put a big smile on ur face and say "please". Trust me.. it works. :P

    The price u pay will be about 30% lower per piece. Most shops allow u to mix different types of items, for example, purses and bags, shirts and trousers. And as with most shopping malls in the city, there is also a food court on the fifth floor, along with cafés and fast food chains

    Platinum Mall: Wholesale Shopping Bargains

    Unlike other shopping malls in the central district of Bangok, Plantinum Mall is one place that is not a usual haunt for tourists. The large mall of five floors is a cheaper alternative to ladies looking for great variety of fashion apparels. For men, they got something for you too.

    Because the mall consists of many, many wonderful shops, a great tip not to miss out on any great deals is to walk, browse and shop in an organised manner. Instead of just snaking your way haphazardly, stroll your way through the long rows of shops and if you do find a 'hard-to-miss deal' but still want to wander around, do remember to unit number and name of the shop because once you forgot the shop, you could be 'lose' it (unless you walk through the rows again..)

    A word of caution: you could be spending a whole day or two in the mall! So do remember to take a breather at one of the several food joints such as Black Canyon Coffee.

    What to buy: Clothes, Shoes, Bags, Accessories and more.

    What to pay: Eventhough prices are already sold at wholesale costs, do try to bargain further if possible.

  • Platinum Mall: Great buys here!

    by thescene Written Jan 4, 2011

    The Platinum mall is one of the main bargain shopping malls in the city. Here hundreds of stalls sell cheap items like clothes, shoes, local crafts and souvenirs and of high quality. Here prices are not fixed so feel free to haggle prices. Sellers are normally willing to bring down prices if you decide to purchase stuff wholesale.

    What to buy: Shoes and clothes

    Platinum Mall: Ooh, bargains galore at Platinum

    by yukisanto Written Jan 22, 2009

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    There are like 5 levels and 1 basement full of clothes in this wholesaler mall. About 80% women's clothes and accessories, 10% guys' stuff and 10% others, including a food court on level 5.

    How things work: When you buy one piece from a shop, it's retail price. But for most, if you buy two or more, you get wholesale price/discount, which can range from 50-200 baht cheaper per item. So you either buy more, or shop with a fren and buy stuff together.

    What to buy: Clothes and the like. Different kinds of fashion here, but you really have to pick and choose. I usually just walk up and down the aisles methodically until I see somthing on my list of to buy (meaning: clothes which are my size and style).

    What to pay: Prices range from 200-500 baht for clothes, and 50-200 for accessories. Bags and shoes vary.
    Cash please, they dun have cards.

    Platinum Fashion Mall is a great bargain place to be. You can find a wide selection of clothing, bags, shoes, etc... It's best to buy in 3's or more so you can have a bargain price. Single item purchase tends to be higher. You can shop in comfort here coz it's cooler with aircon unlike the wholesale market where it's hot & chaotic. There's also a food court where you can eat.

    What to buy: Wide selection of clothing, bags, shoes, etc...

    What to pay: Shirts for 100 baht

    Smallish shopping mall. LOTS of clothing and shoes, as well as jewellry. Very reasonable prices. My husband kept telling me to wait for Bangkok when we were on the islands. Glad I did as we saved up to 80% on our purchases.

    What to pay: 500 Bhat on a COPY handbag... they were asking 2000 Bhat on the islands.

    As I was staying for 2 nights within the Pratunam district before flying to Chiang Mai, I needed to shop for some shirts as I have only about 4 with me. The nearest one and convenient was the Platinum Mall.

    I like MBK a lot better, but I only discovered MBK after my return from Chiang Mai.

    Platinum is a huge shopping mall, with maybe a thousand shops, mostly clothing, shoes, textiles, accessories housed in it's 6-storey block of a building, with 11 floors of condominium on top of it. There's a huge foodcourt on the last floor of the mall.

    It's great shopping for wholesalers. Buying in bulk is encouraged and enticing as it's a lot cheaper. Buy a piece of T-shirt at 150baht retail price, 3 to 6 of those will cost you 120 or less.

    Didn't find much nice Ts though and there are more stuff for women than for men, very unlike the MBK.

    It's more for merchants in buy&sell business, much like most of the whole Pratunam garment district.

    What to buy: clothing, shoes, accessories

    What to pay: wholesale price

    Platinum Mall is flooded with cheap and I mean, real cheap women clothes with a lot of variety and fashion. An absolute heaven for women who love to shop but for men, it is a lot less attractive althought I did manage to get a couple of things here for myself. Don't be shy to bargain here as well..

    Operating hours are from 10am - 8pm.
