The shopping malls in Bangkok have all the aforementioned features. You have options of window shopping, or browsing through the shop shelves to catch up with the latest fashion trends, watch the latest movies, or excite your taste buds with some of the finest restaurants in Bangkok. And with the bustling city of Bangkok famous for its shopping scene, it is a guarantee that these malls will not disappoint.

Here are some of the best shopping malls in Bangkok:

1. Siam Paragon

Siam Paragon, also known as Bangkok’s pride, is home to Southeast Asia’s largest aquarium, 16-screen Cineplex, and high-end brands. This is one Bangkok mall that you will hear about before even stepping into Bangkok. It’s on everyone’s recommended list. This mall has over 250 shops and is mainly known for luxury items. From Jimmy Choo, Louis Vuitton, and Rolex to Prada, Pucci, and Mont Blanc, you’ll find all the international brands here! Don’t forget to take your credit card along as you’ll see some of the most expensive products here.

2. CentralWorld

Central World has been open in 1990 known as the World Trade Center. It was a dark blue maze, and you could hardly find your way around. It is now bright and well-designed, with many restaurants, shops, and entertainment venues, including a vast ice skating rink. It is a very popular mall, but the lack of Sky Train access made it less popular than Siam Paragon or Emquartier.

3. MBK Center

MBK Center, a Thai nationality department store that has long captured the hearts of foreigners, is a department store that, when mentioned, conjures up images of tourists from all over the world flocking to buy famous souvenirs from all regions of Thailand, whether clothing, accessories, jewelry, or many OTOP products. Aside from a wide variety of souvenirs, the mall is also known for its IT and technological gadgets, making it a safe haven for those seeking to purchase electronic devices. In addition to all of the above, the mall also offers a variety of restaurants guaranteed to please both Thais and foreigners all over the world.

4. Terminal 21

Terminal 21 is a complex of 600 stores, a cinema, a Gourmet Market, and a gym destroyed on 9 floors! There are over 50 restaurants and cafes available. A food court on the 5th floor offers authentic Thai and Asian cuisine at very affordable prices. It is possible to find fashion accessories (Kipling, Mango, Lacoste, Levi’s, among others), jewelry, toys, beauty products, and decoration items. Access is very easy via the BTS Asok Skytrain station.

5. Emporium and EmQuartier

This mall is operated by The Mall Group which also owns the EmQuartier. Numerous designer brands ranging from flagship brands like Louis Vuitton, Prada, and Hermes to trendy options like Armani, Calvin Klein, Zara, and Diesel can be found here. ‘Living Gallery’ residing on the fourth floor will allure you with its exquisite collection of kitchenware, Victorian bathtubs, and chandeliers. One feature that puts it ahead of other Bangkok malls is the Thailand Creative Design Center (TCDC). It is Asia’s first design learning center with a massive collection of over 15000 books, videos, and multimedia materials. The multi-cuisine food court is on the fifth floor.

6. Platinum Fashion Mall

Platinum Fashion Mall is an 11-story multiple-unit complex. 1300 shops are distributed among its 7 shopping floors which are named after famous shopping districts around the world like Ginza, Soho, Oxford, and Nathan among others. You can find tons of affordable products that will fulfill all your shopping needs.
