  • Most shops are turning to small shops around the country that make their purchases here.But here it is crowded and intensely, not so long ago this was what Bangkok looked like. 
  • Very cute and a little different from other markets in the city. Here you will do business because things cost very little.

  • Wholesale market where you can find anything and everything related to fashion. The more you buy the less they cost. Come with lots of time in your hand or else you might regret.
  • 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.
  • Nice local market coming to life in the late evening. Great for walking around aimlessly and shopping for stuff you don't need. Full of massage saloons.
  • 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.
