Tourist attractions in pratunam bangkok

   When you’re in town, Pratunam is THE place to be! It is one of Bangkok’s most vibrant and colourful areas – well-known for its wholesale shopping spots, street markets, and popular local food places. You’re probably overwhelmed by the sheer number of travel articles on this popular backpackers’ destination, or maybe still clueless about what to expect. Fret not, here’s the one-stop guide on where to shop, where to eat and what to do in the district that never sleeps!
Bangkok is a true shoppers’ paradise! Ranging from the things you need to the latest must-haves, you can spend days at Pratunam’s best shopping spots and still not be done. Pack really light when heading to Bangkok – you’re gonna need all the luggage space to lug your loot home!
Especially for ladies, this is THE place to be if you are in serious need of a total wardrobe revamp. Here are 7 specially curated spots in Pratunam to get that much needed retail therapy!

 



1. Platinum Fashion Mall
As the name suggests, this shopping mall is THE fashion capital of Pratunam, perfect for those looking to deck themselves from top to bottom in the latest fashion trends. If you plan to do some intense shopping, a day will not be enough to cover even a fraction of the mall’s 2000 shops! From Korean-inspired fashion to oversized-fit clothing and pretty chiffon dresses, you need not worry about finding a style that suits you.
Fun Fact: Each floor is named after well-known shopping districts around the world such as Orchard, Oxford, and Ginza! Unlike Chatuchak or Pratunam Markets, the shops in this mall are more organised and you can shop in air-conditioned bliss.
Also, since it is a wholesale shopping mall, be assured that prices here are low and affordable. Bad advice for your wallets but don’t hesitate when you see something you like. Chances are you will be confused amidst the dizzying array of shops and might not find the item again (true problems of those who’ve been there).
Address: Petchburi Road, Thanon Phetchaburi, Ratchthevi, Bangkok (10-minute walk from either Ratchathewi or Chidlom BTS Skytrain)
Opening Hours: Daily, 10am to 10pm

2. Pratunam Market
What’s Pratunam without Pratunam Market itself? It is truly a cultural immersion into the local way of life. From stall vendors pushing their carts swiftly up and down the narrow alleyways, to tailors working speedily on their sewing machines, the experience will surely perk your mind and senses.
Pratunam Market subtly maintains the traditional feels of what shopping used to be like before the influx of air-conditioned malls. It has a certain charm that comes about due to one thing – that it is not well-known among tourists. Although most would prefer the modern malls, Pratunam market is a hidden gem waiting to be discovered.
Address: Intersection of Ratchaprarop and Petchburi roads to Ratchaprarop Soi 3
Opening Hours: Daily, 10am to 10pm

3. Talad Neon Downtown Night Market
If there’s one thing to look forward to during a trip to Bangkok, it would be to bask in the bustling atmosphere of the night markets. After its opening in December 2016, Talad Neon is the latest hipster night market haunt right in the heart of Bangkok (more reasons to stay in Pratunam!). Operated by the same group behind the successful Platinum Fashion Mall, this market has been swiftly making its rounds on social media.
Talad Neon is headed by a young generation of Thai entrepreneurs who sure know how to please today’s millennials! It is a buzzing hub of vendors hawking unique wares, varying from kitschy kitchen items to retro and hypebeast-worthy fashion to novel food items. Eclectic neon lights and live performances add on to the festive vibe at Talad Neon, distinguishing it from other veteran nights markets such as Chatuchak and Talad Rod Fai. A couple of unique foods to try include lip-smacking cheese fries from Friend Cheese, coloured jello drinks (to which you can add a shot of vodka!) and the Joke Ribs (pork ribs coated in special secret seasoning). After a long day of shopping, pamper your weary little feet with a much-needed foot massage at the double-storey massage parlour within the premises!
Address: 1087 Khwaeng Makkasan, Khet Ratchathewi, Krung Thep Maha Nakhon 10400, Thailand (Opposite Berkeley Hotel, 15-minute walk from Platinum Mall, or take a free tuk-tuk service between Platinum Mall and Talad Neon)
Opening Hours: Thursday to Sunday, 5pm to 12mn

4. The Palladium World Shopping
Located at the corner of Phetchaburi Road and Ratchaprarop, Palladium World is a newly renovated shopping mall home to many stores selling clothing for 100 baht or less! It follows a bazaar type of layout, but its walkways are wider and shops more spacious. However, don’t expect the most trendy of fashion styles – this mall is known for basics like T-shirts, shoes and beach wear.
Strewn throughout the mall are numerous massage parlours hawking quick traditional Thai massages for you to recharge after a whole afternoon of shopping. If you’re looking for special novelty items like jewelry, be sure to visit The Grand Silver Jewelry, which is known as one of the best jewellers in Bangkok.
As night approaches, the area in front of Palladium World comes alive with a mini night market. You can find several street vendors selling cute trinkets and scrumptious snacks and occasionally, activities such as fashion shows and dance competitions to keep you entertained!
Address: Petchburi Road, Pratunam, Ratchathewi
Opening Hours: Daily, 9am to 8pm, Night market from 7pm onwards

5. Big C Supercentre
Calling all food-lovers, this shopping spot in the Pratunam neighbourhood is just for you! Patrons who visit this hypermarket usually load up on Thai-inspired snacks, tidbits and even cooking pastes. It is also very easy to buy items in bulk here as they have ready-packed boxes on their shelves.
Craving for authentic Thai Milk Tea to get your Cha Yen fix? Don’t despair, stock up on Nestea’s 3-in-1 Cha Yen sachets from Big C! Salivating as you think about the scrumptious Pad Thai you had at the street markets? How about trying your hand at making your own! You’ll be able to find many various types of Thai cooking pastes and Pad Thai spice pastes that will transport you back to Thailand in the comfort of your own kitchen.
Take your time to browse the aisles of the massive supercentre, and load your shopping cart with unique made-in-Thailand Pretz snacks and Thai instant noodles. You can also get pretty much everything else here, including clothes, accessories and toiletries. Remember your limited luggage space though!
Address: Ratchadamri Road (opposite Central World, nearest BTS station is Chidlom)
Opening Hours: Daily, 10am to 11pm

6. Shibuya 19 Shopping Mall
Enter the new kid on the Pratunam Block! Shibuya 19 Shopping Mall got its inspiration from the world-renowned Shibuya 109 Mall in Tokyo. Each floor in the mall is named after a popular district in Tokyo, equipped with loudspeakers blasting J-pop music as you enter. Almost similar in style to Platinum Fashion Mall across the road, Shibuya 19, however, is less chaotic and offers a more relaxed shopping experience.
Here you can find many stores selling fabric, rainbow prints, funky T-shirts, cute handbags and chiffon dresses and a plethora of accessories at unbelievably low prices! Bargaining is de rigueur but you usually have to buy multiple pieces to receive a discount. The Pratunam district is indeed a shopping haven for those seeking a great deal, and Shibuya 19 just adds on to the list of reasons why you should visit Bangkok!
Address: Phetchaburi 19, Pratunam (Opposite Platinum Fashion Mall, 10-minute walk from Ratchatewi or Chit Lom BTS Station)
Opening Hours: Daily, 10am to 6pm
