Shopping in Sukhumvite area !!!

Hi All,

Staying in Sukhumvite area ( soi 1 ), and want to know the best places near by for shopping.

The wife will be looking for bags !! She usually gets them from Patpong ( the little back doors at the back of the shops !! )

Anywhere like that in my area ????

I like looking for things for the house, ornaments and pictures etc.

Plus which is the best air con department store for shopping and food ?????

Many thanks

It is not so far from Soi one to Pratunam the main market area nearby. I would suggest that, taxi or bike in 5 - 8 minutes, or get off sky train at Chit Lom and walk down by Central World.

Shopping malls near you would be Robinson and the superb new Terminal 21 just past Soi 19, you can walk from Soi 1 to 19 in 5 or 6 minutes!! Both are aircon. T21 is new and the top two floors have superb choices of eateries etc.

MBK (National Stadium stn) is only a 10 minute ride on the BTS from where you are, and the prices are as good as, if not better than, the so-called Patpong night market. Soi 1 is right where Sukhumvit becomes Ploenchit Road... and the Ploenchit BTS station is a 5 minute walk.

Terminal 21 is well worth a visit (Asoke BTS stn), and there is a big concentration of malls at Siam stn - Siam Paragon, Central World, Siam Discovery, Siam Center.

Hi,

I'm sure your wife will find a bag in MBK, there are loads to choose from. And, if she would like something more upmarket try at the Emporium a couple of stations away on the Skytrain. It's also a good place to eat. I haven't been to Terminal 21 yet but it gets lots of good reviews. And, close to Terminal 21 is Robinsons, have a look around there.

was at mbk yesterday and the higher you go up on the floors the cheaper the merchandise. Did buy a new bag from one of the 100 differen vendors. Just a small plain black bag that can put all the essentials in whilst travelling.
