Central Chidlom Tips (9)

Central Chidlom: polo

I agree with Curt, most of these are going ot be knock-offs. You can find them much cheaper in the Petchaburi area which is the clothing district in this area of Bangkok. You can also finds them at many of the stalls right on the street, maybe not as many sweaters but Polo is everywhere. If you want the real deal then look at the Central Dept. stores, but then you did say cheap so don't look for cheap at Central or other high end department stores where you could pay 75-100$
good luck

Central Chidlom: Clothing, Accessories, Jewellery & Cosmetics

Central is an upscale department store group; I would say that compared to the ones in the US it is between Macy's and Bloomingdale's.

The Chidlom branch is their flagship store in Bangkok. It is a large deparment store maybe only slightly smaller than Macy's New York.

I shop here for fragrances due to the variety they offer and everyday work shirts. It is more expensive than Robinson's but they have good and trendy selections.

On the top floor there is a large food court with great selection of Western, Thai, Indian, Japanese and Chinese food.

Central Chidlom: Shopping in Central's biggest departmental store

This is the flag store of the Central Departmental Store chain. 4 storeys of (upmarket) shopping paradise in cool, clean & bright comfort. Of course, being a departmental store, there is nothing fake here (well, maybe except for that fake smile on some of the service personnels).

Comb through all the various International brands, as well as local brands. This is the place to be when Central launches its annual sale.

What to buy Typical departmental store items.

What to pay As tagged. No bargains.

Central Chidlom Department Store

There are several branches of the Central Department Store around Bangkok, but the Central Chidlom (aka Chit Lom) store is the most accessible one for the majority of tourists, and is also the largest branch - seven floors of fashion, items for the home, electrical goods, kids' toys, gifts and more.

There's also an upmarket food court on the 7th floor, a Japanese restaurant on the 4th floor and a branch of Starbucks on the ground floor.

It's located on Ploenchit Road, a short walk east from Gaysorn Plaza, and is conveniently attached to the Chit Lom skytrain station by a walkway. Open from 10am from 10pm daily.

Central Chidlom: Thailand's best department store

Central Chidlom (Chitlom) is the flagship store of Central Department Store chain. The store adopts a "one-stop shopping" philosophy. Here, you can find everything you need from top brands, trendy fashions to Thai and Asian handicrafts and a Jim Thompson store. Very plush and has a definite upscale-feel, the staff are very friendly and helpful. There are special services for tourists, such as VAT refunds, interpreter, shipping service, currency exchange, easy-shopping service and the best of all, the 5% discount for tourists! Sounds too good to be true, well just present your passport to the Customer Service counter and they'll give you a Tourist discount card, which entitles you to a 5% discount on your purchases.

If you feel peckish, there are numerous restaurants to choose from including the trendy Foodloft on level 7 and two Starbucks cafes on Ground Floor and Level 7. There are also comfy chairs and sofas throughout the stores, if you feel tired but your special someone is still roaming the store. Definitely one of the shopping spots that is not to be missed when you're in Bangkok.

Central Department Store - Chitlom: Busy in Bangkok

Very nice selection of goods indeed! Wide selection of clothing - men, women and children. Toys and baby stuff. All at reasonable prices - including the brand names.

What to buy Hmm ... all the stuff that's too expensive to buy back home. There are name brand clothes, but there's also a range of local designers, which are good quality. Just remember that the Thai are smaller than Europeans / Africans ... so don't worry too much when only XL seems to fit *grin*

What to pay There was a 5% discount for tourists (plus the VAT refund if you spent 2000 Baht). And then there was an ongoing sale of sorts on the 6th floor. And what with the exchange rate - I'd say you expect to save 20 - 70% on prices at home.
