    Where to Shop and What to Buy in Sukhumvit

    Sukhumvit Road is one of Bangkok's best known shopping streets. Easily accessible thanks to the BTS, its air-conditioned malls, department stores, myriad shops and sidewalk vendors offer an overwhelming variety of goods that range from fashion trends straight off the catwalk to cheap imitations.

    The most visible and vibrant form of commerce are the street stalls peddling souvenirs, knock-off clothing and pirated DVD's. These open in the afternoon and operate all along lower Sukhumvit road around the main hotels. Many don't close until late. Shops, meanwhile, feature everything from haircuts and antiques to tailored suits and happy-ending massages.

    Upmarket shopping is almost as easily found. Connected by elevated walkway to BTS Asok is Robinsons Department Store, and to BTS Phrom Phong the massive Emporium Shopping Mall.

    Home to many of the city’s funky fashion boutiques the swanky street of Thonglor (Soi 55) - the 'Beverley Hills of Asia' according to the New York Times - is perfect for those wanting trendy clothes, gadgets or home wares crafted by both homegrown and overseas designers. Many fine interior and home decor stores in this area celebrate the creativity and craftsmanship of Thailand.

All Shopping Places in Sukhumvit

Artbox Bangkok is a cool new pop-up market with a difference: the stalls (not all of them) are housed in giant metal shipping containers which can be moved around the city.

Something else that makes Artbox all the more appealing is that you won’t find all the usual tacky tourist souvenirs such as on Sukhumvit, Silom and throughout Chattuchak. The stuff here is still cheap, but there is more of a focus on local designers, vintage fashion, handmade accessories, funky gadgets and hip home décor items. Not a carved wooden frog or Chang vest in sight. Throw in a few bars, a live music stage and dozens of food vendors, and you have yourself one of Bangkok’s coolest new night markets. Read More...

Button Up is a luxury tailors and fashion brand based in Bangkok which can claim celebrity A-Listers as customers. American rapper Snoop Dogg and teen-drama 90210 actor Matt Lanter are both customers along with the cream of Bangkok’s glitterati. In fact, the team at Button Up worked as stylists for Snoop Dogg’s music video No Guns Allowed.

Along with the flagship store in the fashionable Thong Lor area of Sukhumvit, Button Up has eight separate branches spread throughout the top shopping malls in the city. Siam Paragon and Central Chit Lom both have off-the-rack shirts and apparel for sale starting from 2,000 baht, but for bespoke tailoring and refined service you must visit their stand-alone store next to Thong Lor Soi 5.

Mae Varee

This ordinary-looking fruit stall is best known for its mango sticky rice. After over 20 years of whipping up this mouthwatering delicacy, Mae Varee has garnered a solid base of loyal customers, who drop by throughout the day to pick up a few servings on their way home.

The secret, says Mae Varee, is in the coconut milk-sugar-salt reduction, which is infused into the sticky rice to create a nutty and slightly chewy texture. The mango too is another key – either Ok Rong or Nam Dok Mai variety is used to accompany the sticky rice. Apart from mango sticky rice, Mae Varee also stocks a selection of imported and local fruits. Judging from the non-stop customer traffic and the fact that it’s open 24 hours, there’s really nothing ordinary about this humble-looking establishment.
