It's battle of the shopping malls in Chitlom/Ploenchit and shopaholics are truly spoilt for choice. However, it is not Bangkok's finest shopping centres which mark out this area- it's the trendy bars and distinguished hotels as well as the close proximity of Bangkok's largest green space!
Gaysorn is the major luxury mall of the area and is full with all the ... More>major brands you would expect. An alternative is Central Chidlom which has its own sky train exit and houses one of Bangkok's best food courts, Foodloft. Resembling a high-end restaurant more than a food court, this is definitely worth visiting. And if your feet are still going, have a peek in Amarin Plaza for a bit more shopping. After all that walking and purchasing, rest up at one of our Chidlom hotels or Ploenchit hotels and get ready to check out the area's nightlife.
Langsuan and nearby Sarasin Road are where the fun can be had in this part of town. Hotel bars teem with delicious liquor while chic pubs, particularly on Sarasin Road, serve up foreign beers and live music. But if all this is a bit much, we recommend heading to the tranquillity of Lumphini Park or paying respects at Erawan Shrine if you are seeking love and success.
