One of Bangkok's most famous shopping spots, this multi-storey shopping plaza houses over 2000 shops and boutiques with whole floors dedicated to fashion, beauty and accessories, and all with very reasonable price tags. Everything you need to get your shopping fix you can find it here: Clothes, shoes, bags, lingerie, makeup, jewelry, you name it.
