There is so much to see and do in Bangkok with more than 400 temples to explore as well as traditional Thai cooking classes, cultural demonstrations, river cruises and of course the fantastic shopping. There are floating markets, night markets and stalls offering fresh produce as well as super malls packed with counterfeit designer goods, mid-range western brands and high end luxury goods. These are some of the largest shopping venues in all of South East Asia, offering hundreds or even thousands of stores spread across multiple levels. Bartering or haggling while shopping is encouraged in Thailand, and it’s a great way to pick up some holiday bargains.
