If you love shopping, then Bangkok is a great city to head to and not only are there some fabulous hotels to stay in while shopping in the big smoke but many of them are located close to the city’s best shopping spots. From markets and sprawling malls to designer shops and bargain outlets, there are lots of different ways to shop in Bangkok and if you want to try them all out then you might want to stay somewhere in the centre of the city.

However, for many keen shopaholics there is often a favourite way to shop, so if you have an eye for a bargain in a bustling market, chances are you won’t enjoy shopping in a glitzy mall filled with high-end brands and vice versa. Good value deals on Pratunam hotels can be organised online through reputable hotel companies and this is one of the best places to stay if you love going from market stall to market stall bargaining for great deals along the way.
