Ko Phi Phi Don

Kata Beach

Kata Beach

Kata Beach (Phuket area) – located a short distance from Patong Beach is this quieter, more relaxed beach in southern Phuket. This beach has everything that makes Phuket so popular – palm trees, warm water and nice scenery, but there are no high rise hotels or shopping malls in sight. During low season, waves at this beach can be intense, making it a great place for surfers, but not the place for those with young children.

Playa Karon

Located on the west coast, between Patong to the north and Kata (with which it shares a common municipality) to the south, Karon Beach is the second favorite holiday destination in Phuket. The beach itself has excellent snorkeling (and even diving) spots at its southern end and is wide enough for beachgoers to never feel crowded.

Terminal 21

Terminal 21

Terminal 21

Terminal 21 (Sukhumvit Road, between Soil 19 & 21, North Klongtoei, Wattana, Bangkok 10110) — The name might lead you to think this is a transport hub, but it’s actually a shopping mall (totaling an astounding 600 retailers, and over 50 restaurants & cafes). And you might be wondering why you would want to visit a shopping mall for kick while traveling. Well, Terminal 21 has a special flair – even by Thailand’s shopping standards. Every floor of the mall has been themed to a different international city. Enter at the level of the BTS station and you’ll be in Paris; go up a floor and it’s Tokyo; another floor and you’re staring at the iconic red phone booths of London. The Caribbean, San Francisco, and Istanbul also figure into the design theme.

Siam Paragon

Siam Paragon

Siam Paragon

Siam Paragon (991 Rama I Road, Pathumwan, Bangkok, 10330) — Siam Paragon Bangkok is Bangkok’s premier shopping mall. To call it a shopping “mall” is demeaning because it is a show case of the best products on the market. Here, one can find women’s and men’s fashion, sports goods, electrical goods and the standard sections one would find in a department store, but prices will be higher than if you shopped around and went elsewhere.

 

Siam Paragon has hundreds of different stores and shops carrying high end brand names such as Gucci, Bulgari, Paul Smith, Jimmy Choo, BMW, Porche and many many more. If you wanted to buy a Ferrari, and compare it to a Hummer, both will probably be on display here.

 

Siam Center

Siam Center

Siam Center (989 Rama I Road, Pathum Wan, Pathumwan, Bangkok 10330) — Siam Center’s re-launch in January 2013 brought a different kind of shopping experience to Siam: over 200 international and Thai brands including the boutiques of some brilliant promising local designers as well as renowned Thai couturiers. On top of that, the slick renovations have taken their fresh ideology out of the stores and into the corridors, with a quirky mash-up of nature and technology. Carved wooden horses greet visitors at the entrance and interactive dress-up televisions display how the clothes will look without entering a changing room. Although Siam Center may have been around for over 40 years, it is still enlightening and surprising its customers with cutting-edge, unusual fashion.
