Bangkok’s Luxury Shopping Spots
When it comes to shopping experience, Bangkok is one of the best cities in the world. This is one of the reasons why guests love to stay at a hotel near Em Quartier because of the lavish shopping experience. Aside from the vibrant city, everything is glitzy and sophisticated. Once the night has settled, there are bazaars popping up from every point in the city. There are dozens of malls to choose from that are open early in the morning and closes late at night.
Aside from being known for the cheap wholesale clothing and knock off brands, the city is also popular because of the luxury shopping experience. There are many choices to choose from including traditional woven rugs, vintage clothing, spa-like skincare products, antique silks, jewellery and handcrafted cutlery.
The shopping paradise is the best all throughout the year but it is recommended to visit during the winter season because of the nice weather. The advantage of visiting between June and July is that there are sales as low as 80 per cent in mall prices. For hotel accommodations, the cheapest rates can be grabbed during the summer season when it is rainy in the kingdom. Tourists leaving the country can also claim the sales tax worth 7 per cent before they fly off the country.
There are many malls worth visiting in Thailand and some of the best are located in Siam which is considered as the shopping centre of Bangkok. This is where the Siam Paragon is located which offers top brands as well as high-end offerings from Asian designers. Its neighbour, the CentralWorld mall is where consumers can fine popular brand names such as Calvin Klein and Zara. This is also home to Disaya, haute designer from Thailand.
Tourists wanting to see architecture at its best should visit Central Embassy with brands such as Hermes and Gucci. For those in Sukhumvit, it is worth staying in a hotel near Em Quartier because the mall is known to be an upscale location frequently visited by the rich locals of Bangkok. This is where the elites come together and have coffee while spending on brands such as Jimmy Choo and Louis Vuitton.
