At Siam Square (adjoining to Siam Skytrain Station), there a signboard "IT Gateway". Upon entering at the same level with the skytrain station public area, there rows and rows of shops selling cameras, it products and accessories.
This is one time when I wish I'm all by myself and have, at least, 1/2 day to shop around. Because we were going (rushing) to another location, we had a brief window shopping and was impressed by it (though not as big as Sim Lim Square, Singapore - back home country).
What to buy: Electronics stuff including cameras, computer accessories, etc.
