Looking for cheap gifts? You can go to Pratunam. Near the bridge across Paladium Mall you can find a retail shop who sells many Thai gifts with very cheap price. 6 keychains for 100 baht!
It's like an outdoor version of Platinum mall, and definitely infinitely more like a maze. Prices are definitely lower than those at Platinum mall but It is hot, especially during the day and inside the sunlight devoid maze. There are good deals but most are inside the maze and not on the street outside. However, I would rather shop at the nearby Platinum mall for its air conditioned comfort. The deals really take some exploring to find though.
The hive of wholesaling activities start in wee hours of the morning. Come 4am to get it done early. It was a maze but with Google maps, one can navigate and find respite from the heat by dodging into 7-Elevens scattered around like grains of Xiaomi. Food stalls with no price tags? Don't buy. Or at least ask once or twice.
A cheap wholesale market. If you wanna shop a lot wid a minimum budget,itz ur place .... u cant evn imagine how cheap da cloth can get... nd if u buy more cloths then thy will giv u a wholesale price ....
Should negotiate for any item we want to buy. Always uses: Rod/Lod dai may? / Can you make it cheaper?
