What to buy: You can find:
You can find everything you need in this area. I often spend the afternoons here while waiting to go to class at 6pm at the university right across the street so you might just bump into me!
What to buy: I would recommend fashion clothes.
What to pay: Depends on what you buy. Don't forget to try to bargain at least 50% of what you've been told.
You can find everything you want there. I didn't have much time to shop so went to MBK, Discovery center and ended up at Siam Center.
There is a lot of variety in the hundreds of small shops. You can find these things elsewhere but here you have Air Conditioning... : ).
What to buy: I remember two things in particular:
1) Music: I went in a small store that was blasting techno and ask the guy for the best Thai dance music he had. He then played some English music straight out of some UK studio. I then said: "i want Thai songs !". Needless to say he was delighted, he spent the next 45 minutes showing me his best pick and i came back home with some awesome mix. So if you hear some Thai techno blasting out of a red 4X4 on a California highway...it might be me !
2) Women clothes: As always, i buy 10X more things for my "gongzhu" than for myself when I'm on trip. Since she can't even fit most size zero in the US, Asia is the place to go for her. I got her some great shirts and skirts that would cost couple hundred dollars in the US. Plus the clothes there are not conservative at all...: )
What to pay: Cheap as always
You wanna know where the skul kids go after skul? Yeap, they all come here. You can find almost ne kinds of trade you want: CDs, clothes, hairdressers, cinemas, restaurants. I cant exactly tell you where to go cos this place is huge! There's all sorts of smells wherever you go, one minute, you'll smell food, the next you'll smell ***e! Gosh, just like ying and yang! Lol! Everything is really cheap but u can still bargain if you're not please enough. Happy shopping!
Siam Square - collection of trendy shops for young people. Mostly clothes, bags, shoes, but there are also general stores like Watsons, bank, restaurants, etc etc. Only downside is that there is no air-con being outdoors.
There are many shops in the Siam Square area. Many are clothing shops. This is an interesting place to people watch. Nearby are big shopping centres (what Americans call 'malls').
