Street Shopping in Bangkok
Tucked down shadowy, orchid-strewn alleys or confronting you in glittery glory, Bangkok’s shopping opportunities come in every size, shape, budget, and locale imaginable. The best part is, the prices here are half those you’d find in New York, Tokyo or Hong Kong.
To help you find costume jewelry, vintage heels, custom denim, or the perfect pair of Ray Bans at a steal of a price, we rounded up five of the must-visit streets in Thailand’s capital.
At Siam Paragon, you’ll find plenty of places, such as Prada and Armani, willing to take your hard-earned cash. But if you want a chance to purchase fashion labels you can’t find back home, head to the nearby Siam Square. It’s actually multiple streets, anchored by a central, charming, tree-lined road. Both sides of the main avenue offer independent boutiques full of affordable shoes, handbags, ladies’ apparel, nail salons, coffee shops, and amazing custom denim for men.
