Novotel Bangkok Platinum Pratunam

Bangkok Hotels Markets Shopping

Bangkok Hotels Markets Shopping

Bangkok Hotels Markets Shopping, Petchaburi Rd is surrounded by some of the best shopping in this great city. Everybody knows about Pratunam markets where you can buy clothes and accessories at rock bottom prices, now however there is much more competition at places like Palladium World and Platinum Fashion Mall which offer air conditioned comfort which you certainly don’t get at Pratunam markets.

For an excellent room rate at the Novotel Bangkok Platinum book through THIS LINK.

Pantip Plaza

Several floors of hardware and software, I have been shopping here for 20 years.

 Pantip Plaza

Computer and camera shops are located on the 3rd floor, as well as hardware, RAM etc for sale. Some shops specialize in building computers to your specifications. The fourth floor has more computer and repair shops.

Platinum Fashion Mall

Bangkok Hotels Markets Shopping

 Platinum is a 5 billion Baht shopping mall in Petchaburi Rd Pratunam, almost next door to Pantip Plaza, which specializes in fashion clothes and accessories both retail and wholesale.

Baiyoke Sky Hotel

I took this photo from the Red Sky bar above Central, on the right is the Novotel and Palladium World Shopping mall.

Amari Watergate Hotel

The Amari Watergate hotel is a reasonably priced hotel in the middle of this shopping district, book through THIS LINK and you will get a discounted room for around $88 + tax.

Palladium World Shopping mall.

Bangkok Hotels Markets Shopping

Located on the corner of Phetchaburi Road and Ratchaprarop with the 3 gold domes, I believe it’s bigger and cheaper than Platinum Fashion Mall and has a bazaar type layout featuring long alleyways of tightly packed stalls.

Palladium World from street level

It certainly does not look as spectacular as it does from the Red Sky Bar.

Foot massage at Palladium World

After a couple of hours walking there is nothing like a foot massage. 🙂
