Bangkok has some of the best shopping in the world and lots of people come here and spend days shopping. Use this Bangkok Shopping Guide for everything you need to know about what to buy, where to go and how much to spend.
What to Buy:
Thailand manufactures textiles, shoes and accessories so prices on these items can be shockingly inexpensive. The country also imports plenty of goods from China, so you’ll find items made there, too. You’ll find the best deals on cheaper items, not high quality goods.
Cash or Credit:
Unless you’re shopping at a high end mall, bring cash with you to cover any purchases. Vendors never take credit cards.
To Bargain or Not to Bargain:
Some shops and markets expect bargaining, in others you’ll be laughed at for even trying. Check out individual listings for when to bargain and how much of a discount you’re likely to get.
