Smack bang in the centre of Bangkok
's hottest shopping district, Pratunam is the premier destination for anyone wanting to shop till they drop in Thailand. Find a Pratunam hotel to stay in the heart of the action – you’ll quickly discover there are some very cool things to see once you’ve filled your suitcase with shopping.
But of course the first thing you will do is shop! Pratunam Shopping Centre is basically an air-conditioned version of Chatuchak Market, Thailand’s largest weekend market. Plan to spend at least a couple of hours as you explore more than 1,300 boutique fashion stores. Comfortable shoes are a must, and bargain lovers note that the prices go down the more items you buy.

If peace and tranquillity are more to your liking, Suan Pakkad Palace is your next stop. Walk and explore the well-tended tropical gardens and flat ponds all surrounding eight traditional Thai houses. As you climb into each be amazed at the overflowing collections of antiques, fine arts and collectables that all belong to Prince and Princess Chumbhot.
To wind down after a day’s sightseeing, you can’t beat the view from Baiyoke Tower. Pick a clear day and head to the open sky bar on the 77th floor of the tower, grab a refreshing drink and snap photos to your heart’s content. A great spot to relax as the sun sets, you can watch the city transform into a glittering mass of lights while you enjoy the view from one of Bangkok’s tallest buildings.
