Pocket-friendly shopping in Bangkok can be done in a mall or a street market. Bangkok is the hub for shopping clothes, shoes, bags, accessories, electronics, and more in abundance and good quality. I literally shopped everyday till I dropped! Listing down places that I loved and if you're a pro in bargaining then you're getting luckier.

Loy Krathong Festival Market

Siam Square One is a seven-storey mall located just opposite Siam Paragon (which sells high fashion branded stuff). Only the first two floors are worth visiting for cheap fashionable buy.

Loy Krathong Festival Market was held on the outside section of Siam Square One. The items priced at these stalls were super cheap, for example, I bought 4 pair of earrings for only 400 Baht.

Opening hours : 10am to 10pm

Water, sunscreen and comfortable shoes is a must before heading to Chatuchak. It's the biggest weekend market in the world which is 35 acres and consists of 15,000 shops. If you're visiting Bangkok for a short trip then Chatuchak should be your first and only stop. Be prepared to spend at least half a day here and you will not be go back empty handed!

Friday - Wholesale Day - 6:00am to 6:00pm

Saturday and Sunday - Main market days, everything available - 6:00am to 6:00pm

5. MBK CENTER

An eight-storey shopping mall with plenty of stalls selling almost everything. Many tourists find MBK more convenient as it's inside a mall and air conditioned so easier to shop with food court on the top floor. However, I felt it was too ordinary compared to the other markets we visited and definitely not so cheap. You can still visit if you have an extra day to kill.

Opening hours : 10am to 10pm

6. TERMINAL 21
