Pratunam is in a relatively central location with great accommodations and it is one of the best shopping places in Bangkok. It is famous for its malls, open-air markets and clothing wholesale distribution hubs. It’s a good thing that the hotel we stayed at is ideally located within walking distance of the abundant shopping, dining, and entertainment options that Pratunam is renowned for.
One of them is Platinum Fashion Mall. It is one of Thailand’s largest shopping malls and is home to many of the shops that locals and visitors to Bangkok favor. Here you can find a lot of stores that sell their own designs, as well as other stuff that are imported from places like China and Korea.
Platinum Fashion Mall is like an indoor version of the Chatuchak Weekend Market. It specializes in fashion clothing and accessories, with six (or seven?) floors of shopping space. It’s a wholesale mall, which means you can also get items at very reasonable prices – provided you buy in bulk, usually two items and up!
These mannequins and dress forms caught my attention. What a cool way to attract customers!
We came across this saleslady who was wearing an eccentric outfit. Loved her energy!
The styles are quite updated and you might even find items here that have yet to make it to the online shops in the Philippines.
I highly recommend Platinum Fashion Mall if you’re shopping on a tight budget!
