The World's Shopping Paradise
Night markets, classy boutiques, fascinating little shops packed with antiques and handicrafts, and glitzy mega-malls with every brand name you can imagine! Thailand has it all when it comes to shopping, no matter what you are looking for. And no matter the destinations you visit, you will find exciting shopping, whether in the big cities, in the resort towns and on the islands, off the beaten path and in the local communities.
Bustling outdoor markets that give you an insight into the Thai way of life. Cool precincts where you can envisage an entire new lifestyle for yourself. Enormous shopping and lifestyle centres where there are playgrounds for the kids and leisure action such as bowling, skating and the cinema. In the markets you can try your skill at bargaining. In the curio stores you can buy intriguing gifts to take home. In the malls you can probably find everything you're looking for.
