Bangkok Shopping Guide

BK-Center is a multistoried building housing about 200 small shops and eateries. The upper floor is dedicated to big furniture outlets. It is located in the Southwestern corner of the Rama I-Phayathai Road Intersection. Since quite a few years now, MBK (still best known under its original name of MahBoonKhrong) must be the most visited shopping center in Bangkok. It is very popular with Thai people and caters definitively to the 'common man and woman'. Products for sale include : clothes and fashion items, leather,jewelry, electronics, mobile phones, furniture etc. It also houses a 4-storey department store (Tokyu). You can easily reach MBK-Center by the skytrain : get off at National Stadium station, or stroll on the walkway from Siam Square.
Siam Paragon
World Class Shopping in Bangkoksince any view is obstructed by the awful skytrain pillars in front of the building. We entered the Siam Paragon from the side entrance. We were somewhat taken back by finding ourselves in a Food Court. The first shop we noticed when entering was a Subway fast food outlet. This was actually not at all glamorous, but we quickly realized that we somehow entered the store at basement level. From what we observed, there actually is no really fancy entrance, just some glass doors at streetlevel. There is a wide connection (really spacious) though with the skytrain station, making it indeed very easy to access the store that way.
Chatuchak Weekend Market
Covering 70 rai (35 acres) of land with over 15,000 stalls and more than 200,000 visitors every Saturday and Sunday, Chatuchak Weekend Market in Bangkok is the mother of all markets - and possibly one of the biggest and most famous markets in the world. If bargain-hunting gives you an adrenalin rush, get ready for a head- spinning,earth-moving experience. Conquering this massive market is no easy feat reward for though. The reward for taking a lot of patience along - together with a bottle of water - is that you can find pretty much anything here.

Sightseeing Guide

Royal Grand Palace
The Royal Grand Palace is a glittering walled complex that houses several palaces, all highly decorated with tiles and ceramics. Building was begun in 1782 when Bangkok was founded as the capital of Thailand. The complex houses Wat Phra Kaeo, the holiest of all Thai temples, where the sacred Emerald Buddha rests, not covered in emeralds but jade. There is even a scale model of Angkor Wat. There is a strict dress code and visitors wearing shorts, mini-skirts, sleeveless shirts or flip-flops will be refused entry, although it is possible to hire trousers and plastic shoes.
Chatuchak Weekend Market
The Chinatown (เยาวราช,Yaowarat) district is one of the oldest areas of Bangkok as Chinese merchants were originally moved to this area in the early 1780's when Bangkok was founded. One of the main streets of this area, Charoen Krung (translating as 'Prosperous city'), was actually Bangkok's first paved road, so it's English name, New Road, couldn't really be more inappropriate nowadays. The area has got a somewhat seedy historical reputation for large numbers of opium dens, brothels (which hung green lanterns outside, giving it the name of the Green Light district), pawnshops and a fondness for gambling. Today, gold shops and pawnshops are still very popular in Chinatown and can be found almost anywhere. Drug dealing, prostitution and gambling (all now illegal in Thailand) are also still thought to be widespread in this area, though they are not likely to be very noticeable to the average visitor.
