Dubaii and Bangkok for shopping

Hiya all..I have read many of the reviews before but most are out of date! I am travelling to Dubaii next Tuesday (25th March 2014) and staying for just a brief 3 days,before continuing to Bangkok for a further 3 days..and then Phuket. What I hope somebody will tell me..is where do I do my shopping in order to get the great value both places offer ? Will I get a better price for such things as luggage,shoes,bags and clothes in Thailand..as it appears to be cheaper from what I have read....or is Dubaii the better option for certain items?

Many thanks!

Are you looking for brand/designer items or any odd item? No bargains on designer stuff in BKK.
