Since most of the shops here can only offer attractive wholesale prices when you buy a bundle of items, it is wise to share among your girl friends and split the cost. If you are a shopaholic, you should probably reserve at least 3 to 4 hours just for shopping at this mall.

Opening Hours: Daily 10am – 10pm

If you have more free time, you can consider getting a massage or even a manicure and/or pedicure. A normal gel manicure is quite cheap in Bangkok, which costs about 350 baht, almost half the price in Malaysia. If you do both manicure and pedicure, it costs only 600 baht.

Helpful Tips:

  • Consider getting around with BRT or MRT to avoid traffic jams and tuk-tuk’s ridiculous pricing. If you have 3 or 4 people, taking Grab or taxi sometimes may be a better option. As for using tuk-tuk near touristy area, you must make sure to have good bargaining skills, else you will be charged 3 or 4 times of the normal/actual price.
  • Use Lockbox storage to store your belongings. Instead of carrying a lot of stuffs after a whole day of shopping, you can actually store your belongings at the storage box, so you can enjoy the rest of the day without hassle. There are several locations at the city centre and MRT provide self-storage service, please check out their website for more information. Kindly take note that you will need a Thai number to use the service.
  • Carry enough cash and small change. Bangkok is not a cashless city, many places, shops and stalls are still using cash. Since you will be carrying cash around, please be aware of pickpockets.
  • Get a sim card with data and share among your friends. It is always safer to have a local number while travelling abroad, in case you will need any emergency assistance during your journey. Furthermore, certain services like the self-storage box mentioned above may require you to have a local number.
  • Stay at Siam/Pratunam. Siam or Pratunam area is a good place to start for first-timer. You can easily get anything you need at this area, especially malls, markets, and foods. However, there are a lot to do in Bangkok, you might consider staying at a different district depending on your itinerary.
  • Wear sleeved shirts and long pants or skirts when you visit the temples. It is a general knowledge that temple is a sacred place, so please make sure to dress appropriately if you are visiting any temple.
