Shopaholic: Thailand 

As you might know I just went to Thailand for a month and of course I bought loads of new treasures, that I want to show you, but first of all – let me tell you some of the best places to shop at in Bangkok. 

On our second day we went into the Siam Paragon, one of the many malls surrounding Siam, including the Siam Paragon, the Siam Centre, the Siam Discovery and the Siam Square. You can find some affordable shops like Pull&Bear, H&M, Brandy Melville, etc.  there but you can also find lots of designer stores there. If you’re looking for a bargain,  I wouldn’t recommend shopping there – go to the MBK or the platinum mall instead. They have a large selection of cheap clothing, including fakes of all kinds. 

If you’re more into markets I would recommend going to the Chatuchak Weekend market or the Chatuchak Green market. You can find some amazing small designers there, lots of accessories and souvenirs. 

Hope I could help you and now let’s get on with the haul. 

I got these sunglasses at a little shop at Chatuchak weekend market. 

I got these on Koh Tao at a little sunglass shop. I could care less that they’re fake, I just really like the way they look. 

The gun as well as the two chokers are from Chatuchak weekend market and the bracelet is from Koh Tao. 

I got both of these shirts at the MBK mall in Bangkok.

I found this shirt at the platinum mall in Bangkok, they have lots of shirts like this there. 

These were my finds on Koh Tao. They have tons of little shops there, which sell amazing clothes. Most of them are one size though.

This clutch is from BKK authentic and I got it at Chatuchak weekend market. 

Last, but not least I got this purse at the platinum mall. They have a lot of Gucci inspired bags there. 

Unfortunately I can’t tell you the name of all the shops, because most of them don’t have names, but I hope you liked it anyway.

I was born in Bangkok, but never been there, until now. My boyfriend and I had planned this trip to Thailand for months and we knew that our first stop had to be Bangkok. Luckily a good friend of ours just opened his hostel and he was too kind and let us stay there for the first two weeks. The name is ‘Ora hostel‘ and it’s right by a BTS station, so you can get to most places by sky train. Check it out, if you’re staying in Bangkok. 

We arrived at the Suvarnabhumi airport at about half-past seven on a Tuesday. On our first evening we went to Kaohsan road, a popular walking street for Tourists. We just strolled around, had a few drinks and tried Rotee, a delicious Thai desert, similar to a crêpes, but ten times better.   

On our second day we went to the Siam Paragon Mall and visited the Sea World there. After that we visited the MBK mall, which has a broad selection of fake clothing, accessories and make-up items. So, if you want to purchase any fake goods in Bangkok I would recommend MBK or the Platinum Mall, which we visited in our second week. In the evening our friend took us to the Octave rooftop bar, with an amazing view over the modern part of Bangkok. They also have good cocktails, a thai-style Mojito for example, so if you visit Bangkok you can find the Octave bar on top of the Marriott hotel. 

We also had a stroll through China town at daytime, as well as at night time. During the day you can get all sorts of things in little shops there and in the evening it transforms into a food heaven. Lots of Thais, as well as foreigners come here to eat something at night.  

After our daytime visit in China town we went to Chatuchak “JJ” Green in the evening. It’s a little night market, where you can get cool and affordable clothing, shoes and accessories. You can find vintage band shirts here, as well as the shops of young designers. 

In the second week we went to the Grand palace and looked at the temples, the palace it self was closed due to the funeral of the late king Bhumibol Adulyadej. After visiting this impressive sight, we went to Wat Pho, home of the giant declining Buddha. I think I’ve never seen so much gold at one place. If you want to do some sightseeing in Bangkok, I would highly recommend coming to the Grand palace and Wat Pho. There are also a lot of other temples in Bangkok, but we didn’t have time to visit all of them. 

On our last day in Bangkok we also visited the Chatuchak “JJ” weekend market. It had a very nice selection of clothes and accessories from young designers for affordable prices and also a large selection of souvenirs. 

Our time in Bangkok has ended now. Next stop: Koh Phangan and Koh Tao
Hope you liked my impressions of Bangkok!
