12-hour stopover in Bangkok - shopping advice


I have $600 usd. Is this enough to do a decent amount of shopping in Bangkok for the amount of time I am there during my stopover (12hrs)? Need advice on changing usd money in Bangkok. What the best places to do in this timeframe, looking for women's/men's/boys (8 & 18yrs) fashion and toys.

Any help would be appreciated.

Yes $600 usd. is plenty to do some good shopping in Bangkok. Have a read of the FAQ - FAQ Bangkok SHOPPING on the right. Note FAQ's dont show on the mobile app.

I would head straight to MBK for first shopping.

You can change your money at Bangkok airport but you will get a slightly better rate if you change in the city itself.
