Bangkok is one of the biggest destinations in the world when it comes to shopping, and the list of malls is endless. This sprawling and iconic metropolis rose to prominence at a remarkable rate and now there are countless 5 star hotels in Bangkok, such as the Chatrium Hotel Riverside Bangkok, where many people would utilise to add a touch of luxury to their shopping spree. One of the most definitive shopping malls that Bangkok has to offer is Pantip Plaza, attracting thousands upon thousands of visitors from all over Asia due to its legendary reputation as a one stop hub for everything to do with IT technology.
The mall is located along Petchaburi road and consists of five storeys packed with various outlets selling computer related products. Pretty much anyone who knows a thing about computers or shopping, would tell you that Pantip Plaza is the place to go if you’re looking for technological gear for the best possible price.
The two main operators of the mall are IT City and Data It, where the former occupies the top floor and the latter, the entire first level. These are the places you need to head to if you’re looking for items related to computers.
The ground floor is one of the most interesting places since it mostly specialises in electronic toys and anything mobile-phone related. You will find great deals on all the latest handheld devices here, along with incredibly fascinating gear such as radio-controlled helicopters and vehicles.
The third floor of Pantip Plaza is bound to have anything you seek related to cameras. Additionally, the shops of this floor concern computer parts such as CPUs, RAMs and even external hard-drives. If you’d like a computer assembled for you, this is the floor you need to head to.
And top it all off, the Pantip Plaza has an incredibly popular food court as well, making it a very well-rounded utopia for the technologically-savvy. This is an essential stop on your Bangkok adventure.
