EmQuartier

Let's kick off proceedings with arguably the finest store in the land. If you only shop for the very best brands and could sell your wardrobe to buy a house, EmQuartier will feel like you've died and gone to fashion heaven. Who needs an entire district when you have all of Bangkok's best fashion under one roof?

With the likes of Gucci, Louis Vuitton, and Jimmy Choo just some of the mega brands on offer, you'll be well served. And that's besides the up-and-coming labels you've never even heard of!

So, if your credit card can take it, take your credit card to EmQuartier and max it to the moon and back.

ICON Siam

If we told you there was a place in Bangkok called 'The Mother of All Malls', how would that make you feel? Would it fill you with an incomprehensible glee? If so, we've got some good news. It's real, it's called ICON Siam, and it's even more perfect than you can possibly imagine.

You'll find a veritable ton of designer brands on offer from Asia and beyond. And, if you want to compliment your outfit with the latest devices, you'll also find a bunch of electronic stores selling the newest phones, smartwatches, and other techy accessories.

And, when you're all shopped out, there are a whole host of restaurants in the mall's food hall to sit down and try; even the most vigilant shopper needs a break every now and then.

With all this shopping bliss under one roof, who needs an entire district? Bangkok, you've done it again.

The Mall BangKapi

Come for the shopping, stay for the waterpark. That might sound like an unusual motto for a shopping mall, and yeah, maybe we did just make it up. But when you find out what secret The Mall BangKapi is keeping up its sleeve, you'll start to believe.

You'll find all the usual suspects inside, including designer bags, dresses, skirts, and accessories from recognizable brands. But sometimes, you need to remember that you're on holiday. Shopping isn't always the most important thing. Do you know what you should be doing instead? Going down a water slide.

It's just as well, then, that The Mall BangKapi has a waterpark on its roof. No, really. Say hello to Fantasia Lagoon, where you'll find flumes, slides, pools, whirlpools, wave machines, and even some beach-like spots where you can relax and take a load off. Sublime.

Chatuchak Weekend Market

Of course, it's not all about the labels. Upstart boutiques are all the rage these days, with fledging brands often offering a unique alternative to the biggest fashion juggernauts. But boutiques will often charge even more than their established alternatives, so what's a human supposed to do? Well, why not hit the market scene and find one-of-a-kind, handmade goodies that no one will have back home?

And where better to unearth these fashionable nuggets than at Chatuchak Weekend Market? Not only is it the biggest market in Bangkok, easily putting any shopping district in its place, but it has so many original pieces on offer that you could spend days wandering the endless stalls hunting for a bargain.

Speaking of bargains - don't be afraid to haggle when you find that perfect dress or gorgeous pair of shoes. Haggling is part of the dance at Chatuchak Weekend Market, so go in low and meet in the middle.

Siam Paragon

Does quantity matter to you as much as quality? If the thought of rubbing shoulders with thousands of shoppers at one of the biggest malls in Bangkok, check out Siam Paragon. If David is your average run-of-the-mill shopping district, then Siam Paragon is Goliath. Wait, how did that story end again?

Either way, you'll find floor upon floor of designer labels inside this mall. And, really, isn't that the most important thing? Sure, you might have to claw your way to the last Hermes clutch, but no pain, no gain!

Once you've cleaned the viscera off, go relax at the on-site movie theatre. Featuring 15 of the biggest screens in Asia, it's the ideal remedy to a day of fashion fighting. There's also a food hall where you can pig out on some delicious Thai street food or grab a bubble tea. Don't worry about the cals; you've earned it.

Talad Rot Fai Train Market

Where better to end our deep dive into Bangkok's shopping scene than at another market? Markets are big business in Bangkok, so you'll always find some surprising finds if you dare to take the plunge.

Talad Rot Fai Train Market has tons of stalls, for sure. Weave your way through its seemingly endless colored awnings, and you will inevitably find bargains aplenty. But Talad Rot Fai Train Market is also a night market, meaning it only opens when the sun goes down. And what comes up when the sun goes down?

Drinks. That's right, Talad Rot Fai Train Market doubles as a unique nightlife opportunity, drawing locals and tourists to sip cocktails, wine, beers, and gorge on locally-sourced street food. So why not get your shopping done pronto and then treat yourself?

With shopping opportunities like these, who needs a fashion district? Of course, there's more to Bangkok than brands and sales.
