  • To select fabric for adult relatives He told us that one of the batik is pretty good, and it's pretty much the staff was very cute. Two sets are set lightly.

  • Good place to shop if you planning to buy more than 3 pieces. A lot cheaper than pratunam or any other wholesale markets  more »
  • There are a strong shops on the narrow road. It's crowded. There are many shops selling small items and general stores. If you look at the shops one by one and walk around, time will pass in no time.

  • Sampeng Lane Sampeng Lane Market pretty much sums up the whole shopping experience of Chinatown – and, to some extent, the surrounding Old City area; it’s hot, busy, and the narrow lanes often become overly congested with vendors selling everything from fabrics, cheap clothes and electronics. As well as the steady flow of pedestrian traffic, pushcarts, worn-out vespers and the occasional truck overflowing with fresh produce all add to the madness. But this definitively hectic nature of Sampeng is all part of the fun. Plus, this really is one of the cheapest places to come shopping in Bangkok, with impressive discounts available when you buy in bulk (10 or more items at a time gets you into wholesale territory). The most popular items to look out for are silk sarongs, jewellery, copied DVDs, women’s shoes, home décor and appliances, kids’ toys, cosmetics, handicrafts, dried food and all your usual tourist souvenirs.

  • Good place for shopping souvenirs and cosmetics and actually whatever, the choice is quite big. Don't rush to buy smth in the beginning, the deeper you go the cheaper are things. Good wholesale deals too. Bring your water, it's hard to find a usual 7-11 while shopping. Tip: you can go here by boat from khaosan Road for 50 baht and have kinda free River tour on the way.
  • A long narrow lane about 1km long lined by stores on both sides. Like a street market except that the lane is air conditioned and you don't feel the heat as outdoor. Can be quite crowded.
  • If you want to know what it feels like to be a sardine, come here. Good prices and tons of options. Nice street food too.
