Next day i planned to leave Chiang Mai and set my journey to Bangkok city which was my all time favorite destination for 3S :) SHOPPING, SHOPPING and more SHOPPING. i took metro from airport to city to cut through traffic and reach my hotel asap. The decision was really good as I reached my hotel in less than 30 mins near the bustling shopping area of Pratunam. This area is shoppers paradise. From street shops to malls to wholesale complex - you will not be disappointed at all. You just need to know the place to find your liking when you are in Pratunam. There are different lanes for different types of products here - called SOI in local language. You should visit the wholesale complex before you enter the street shops as you will find awesome deals for buying clothes, bags, shoes, etc in bulk. Best thing to do is to always go in groups of 3 or more to such places because you have to pickup minimum of 3 pieces of same product to avail jaw-drop cheap prices. My kind of shopping is picking up 3 different colors of same piece and team it with accessories. You cannot miss the accessories galore which was just next to the building of my hotel - Centara water pavillion hotel. From earrings to necklaces to bangles to clips - you will find all gliterrati and top fashion products in this complex for really amazing prices.The pink pussy (i know the name sounds weird) is one local brand for accessories and it has too many shops in the city and cannot be missed for sure for its sheer variety and amazing discounts everytime. One should also remember there are set of shops which open up on the streets in the morning - they packup by 3pm late noon. The same place then taken over by another set of sellers by 4pm and they operate till 9-10pm. The sellers who start at 4pm usually throw insane prices to attract sellers to them. i would recommend to try this deal for sure. skirts, tops, pallazos, one pieces - everything i have picked up @ 100 THB per piece which is only 200 INR and so awesome. Guys dont be disappointed - I also found this place which has more than 50 street shops of mens wear right from tshirts, belts, comfortable day wear pants, wallets, etc. Again you have to buy in set of 3 or more to avail huge discounts. I picked up 10 superhero and avenger tshirts at 1000 THB - 2000 INR. This place is near Baiyoke tower. When in Bangkok one should try sticky rice and raw mangoes from local restaurants. I went to nearby place for awesome local dinner. Tom Yum Soup is something i never miss when in Thailand. Fried chicken & local chicken skewers which are available on the street side for 10 THB each is again a must try. The spicy sweet chilly sauce they serve with these are just amazing.
