Bonanza is a multi-level store that offers mainly items for personal effects - women's accessories, belts, shoes, women's clothes, men's clothes, bags and wallets. My friend Rommel brought us here and we went browing from shop to shop. It was really fun because most of the items are cheap but very nice. Some stuff are a little expensive, don't forget to bargain!

Siam Square is another good area to shop. The area is compoud with shops selling clothes, shoes and bags (as well as restaurants). Most of the stuff is local made and many are for high school and university students...Or someone who like to keep up with the trend.
Shops are usually open around midday till 8pm.
What to buy: Fashionable Clothes, bags and shoes.
What to pay: Price is on the tag. Most shops will give you only 10% discount, even for the locals.
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 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.

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').
Siam Square is the modern shopping hub for Bangkok and includes many restaurants both Thai and the traditional American chain restaurants.
