Every shopaholic will have Bangkok on their bucket list and they are right to do so as this city has some of the best shopping venues.

From traditional Thai markets to modern, air conditioned shopping centres that reek of sophistication, Bangkok has it all. If a hotel in Riverside Bangkok isn’t at a walking distance to a mall, then it cannot be deemed a Riverside hotel at all. The AVANI Riverside Bangkok Hotel, for example, is just a stone’s throw away from the Riverside Plaza.

Have you exhausted all your shopping sprees at the local markets? It’s time to up your game and venture into the shopping centres now.

Siam Paragon

This luxury shopping mall is on every traveller’s guide, regardless of whether they want to shop or not. The high-end designer stores attract the wealthier residents of Bangkok and the Siam Ocean World aquarium in the basement is a crowd puller that attracts every visitor.

Central World


The Central World shopping mall has everything you need, and like the icing on top of a cake, it has an ice skating rink too. What could be more perfect than ending your shopping spree with a spin around the rink?
