Shopping on a budget is part of the experience of Bangkok's retail offering. The Platinum Shopping Mall, next to Pantip Plaza, is basically an indoor version of the Chatuchak Weekend Market.

With more than 1,300 market stalls throughout the four-storey building, Platinum Mall will have you confused as to which bargain goods to buy. Find some of the latest fashion and accessory trends imported from around the world, to decidedly Thai designs and styles. Haggling is a must, and part of the fun. A quick tip, if you buy in bulk you WILL save more.

As with any mall in Thailand, there will always be a food court if you suddenly get the urge to munch between trying on clothes.
