Mansion 7

Mansion 7

Mansion 7 is a theme mall with a bizarre twist. It’s dark, creepy, and ‘haunted’ by a legend about its late owner’s daughter – so the story goes. The ghost resides in the Dark Mansion, the mall’s main attraction, while the neglected garden awaits you with unique shops and restaurants. From the main entrance on Ratchadapisek Road, Mansion 7 stands like a giant nest with a claw waiting to gobble up passers-by. Upon entering, the Neglected Garden greets you with a fascinating range of shops and eateries. Beyond the garden is the playground zone, a large fairground space lit by a blood-red moon, surrounded by more theme restaurants and bars. The main highlight, the two-storey Dark Mansion or haunted house, awaits at the far end with its curiously creepy façade – and occasional shrieks and screams from those still ‘trapped’ inside.

Eight floors packed with 2,000 shops that sell everything from clothing, fashion accessories, handbags, leather products and luggage to furniture, mobile phones, electric appliances, cameras, stationery and DVDs. MBK (launched in 1986) is a beehive of activity, especially on weekends, when half of Bangkok converges to shop for bargains. It's not as up-market or stylish as neighbouring Siam Discovery, Siam Centre and the glitzy Siam Paragon, but it offers a mind-boggling range of goods spread over 89,000 square metres and is considerably less expensive. Read More...

Opening Hours: 10:00 - 22:00
Location: Pathumwan Intersection, diagonally opposite Siam Discovery Centre
BTS: National Stadium
Tel: +66 (0)2 620 9000

Pantip Plaza IT Mall

What to look out for (and what to avoid) at Pantip Plaza, the most famous Bangkok electronics mall. Pantip Plaza is the mother of all IT shops in Thailand and has gained legendary status as the place to find new and used computers and accessories at rock-bottom prices. Occupying a rather featureless building on Petchaburi Road, Pantip Plaza has also gained notoriety because of the widespread practice of selling counterfeit software, DVDs… and more sordid material. The mall itself has certainly seen better days, but like an old auntie that always has lots of candy when you go to visit, Pantip Plaza is still pulling in the punters thanks to unbeatable bargains and cheap technical specialists for things like repairs and upgrades. Read More...

Opening Hours: 10:00 - 21:00 (every day).
Location: Petchaburi Road, opposite Pratunam's City Complex
BTS: Chidlom (but still quite a walk)
How to get there: From BTS Chidlom, either hire a tuk-tuk/taxi or walk ten minutes down Ratchadamri Road past Central World on your left, over the Saen Saeb canal and then left on Phetburi Road. Walk about two blocks, and Pantip Plaza should be on your left.

BTS: Ratchadamri

A relatively new shopping center in the Petchburi area, Platinum Fashion Mall caters especially to wholesale clothing, selling a similar range of clothing to the Pratunam Market across the street, except in air-conditioned comfort.

The mall has six floors which are filled with small outlets - most of them specialising in women's clothing and fashion accessories.

Location: Srinakarin Road (midway between On Nut Road and Bangna-Trad Road)
BTS: Take a taxi from On Nut station

Sena Fest Lifestyle Mall

The opening of Sena Fest, the latest community mall in Bangkok, is not much of an event in itself as Bangkok is notorious for having a mall opening every month or so. What is newsworthy is that Sena Fest stands on the Thonburi side of the river, you know: 'the other side', where development is a lot slower than in frantic Siam or Sukhumvit. With 120 shops it's not gigantic either but it's well designed, attractive and colorful in a convenient location near luxury riverside hotels such as Millennium Hilton and the Peninsula Hotel. Most of all it's a bit of fresh air in an aging area. Read More...

Opening Hours: Daily from 10 am to 10 pm
Location: Sena Fest, Charoennakorn Road, Khlong Ton Sai, Klong San, Bangkok 10600

Sense Pinklao

This mid-sized community mall is situated just a few metres up the road from the huge Central Pinklao Plaza (on the same side) and offers a far more modest shopping experience.

Ingeniously named SENSE due to the five elements corresponding to each letter in its name (S: supermarket, E: eating, N: nice, S: service, E: education), the mall has more in the way of eating options than anything else, with the likes of Domino Pizza, Fujiyama, HK Noodle and Wine 88 found throughout its four floors.
Other than places to eat, there’s a Maxvalu supermarket (a cross between 7/11 and Big C) as well as a Boots store, and a few hairdressers and beauty salons, a dental clinic and a massage shop.

Opening Hours: 10:00-22:00 Daily
Location: 71/50 Borommaratchachonanni Road, Arun Amarin, Bangkok

Siam Center

Siam Center’s re-launch in January 2013 brought a different kind of shopping experience to Siam: over 200 international and Thai brands including the boutiques of some brilliant promising local designers as well as renowned Thai couturiers. On top of that, the slick renovations have taken their fresh ideology out of the stores and into the corridors, with a quirky mash-up of nature and technology. Carved wooden horses greet visitors at the entrance and interactive dress-up televisions display how the clothes will look without entering a changing room. Although Siam Center may have been around for over 40 years, it is still enlightening and surprising its customers with cutting-edge, unusual fashion. Read More...

Siam Discovery

Silom Complex

Although there are plenty restaurants and nightlife along Silom Road, one Thai staple that was missing was a shopping mall. Thankfully the recently renovated Silom Complex, only metres away from the BTS at Sala Daeng provides an air-conditioned space in which to shop, grab a bite to eat and escape from the hustle and bustle of the street outside. Owned by the Central Group, it is smaller than the other shopping centres around Bangkok but still offers a nice variety of international and local boutiques as well as the multi-levelled Central Department Store.

Silom Village

Travel back to a time when the grandeur of traditional Thai houses hadn't been replaced with modern skyscrapers right in the heart of Silom, one of the city's most important business districts. Set among lush tropical greenery, Silom Village captures the spirit of old Bangkok through a compound of 17 well-preserved Thai antique houses dating back to the glorious era of King Rama V. The complex features a hotel (Silom Village Inn), and a shopping arcade where an impressive collection of fine antiques, handicrafts, lacquer-finished products, jewellery, Thai silk, and furniture can be found. Besides the shopping arcade, you can also enjoy authentic Thai and international cuisine at the Silom Village Restaurant, complete with a Thai classical dance show.

Opening Hours: 10:30 - 23:30
Location: 286/1 Silom, Bang Rak

Tawanna Market

Located directly next to The Mall Bangkapi, Tawanna is a spacious open warehouse filled with mobile phone and IT counters, plus a few clothing vendors. The 'more affordable' alternative to its neighbor The Mall, this market is less touristy than other IT markets. Be sure to bring along a Thai-speaking friend to bargain for the best deals, as prices and products are similar to those at Pantip.

Opening Hours: 14:00 - 19:00 (every day)
Location: Lad Prao Road, Bangkapi
How to get there: the Saen Saeb canal boat runs from Rachadamnern (near Kaosan Rd) through Plennchit, Pratunam, Siam, Thong Lor, Ekkamai, and stops directly behind The Mall Bangkapi (just next to Tawanna).

Terminal 21

Terminal 21 brings the dream of traveling the world to downtown Bangkok, with its cutting-edge concept that places several world-famous cities under one roof. Find yourself wandering around a maze of shops in Tokyo City, sauntering down London’s Carnaby Street, bagging a bargain in an Istanbul zouk, or shopping for something to fill your growling stomach at the Fisherman’s Wharf in San Francisco.

Emporium is like a glossy magazine come to life. Behold the seven layers of shopper's paradise, where the first three floors are dedicated solely to fashion. Exclusive world-class brand names dominate the ground floor, hot international designer items, leather and jewellery the first floor, and glamorous garb for the young and trendy, the second. Fashionistas, this is your playground. Those more concerned with gadgetry and gear need not feel left out.

The Mall Tha Phra

The Mall Tha Phra is a centre of local life on Thonburi’s busy Ratchadapisek Road. Not only is the mall home to hundreds of fashion stores, restaurants, cafes and entertainment choices, but the whole surrounding area has plenty of pop-up markets, make-shift restaurants and street food stalls, all being drawn to the mall like a moth to bright light.

For a more civilised shopping experience (with air-con) head inside the mall for all your usual high street brands, a cinema, fast food chains and cafes. On the opposite side of the road, there is a cheaper (and hotter) alternative in the form of ‘Talad Soi 13’, an open air market selling mainly cheap woman’s clothes and Thai food. The Mall Tha Phra is also known as ‘The Mall Thonburi’.

Opening Hours: 10:00-22:00
Location: 99, Ratchadapisek Rd., Bukkhalo, Thon Buri, Bangkok

Union Mall Bangkok

Strategically located opposite the ever-busy Central Lad Prao, Union Mall caters especially for a younger crowd, mainly university students, young office workers and those who find Central Lad Prao too expensive and Chatuchak Weekend Market too hot. Union Mall stands eight storeys tall with a total area of 150,000 square metres, housing over 1,000 retail shops. It boasts easy access from the MRT Phahon Yothin station, an international food court, a myriad of fast food chains, entertainment areas, tutorial schools, a fitness centre and a supermarket.

The open-air market just outside the air-conditioned mall is also worth a browse (open everyday from 17:00 onwards). You'll find an interesting range of clothing items, bags, shoes, and fashion accessories at affordable prices.
