Has anybody shopped in both KL & BKK, and if so can you tell me were you think is better (ie,cheaper) for shopping? I'm planning on bringing very little clothes for a 3 month trip, & was planning on buying clothes in KL or bangkok -
Any advice would be great!
-Chinatown (Petaling Street)
-Sungei Wang Plaza
-Pasar Chow Kit
-Chatuchak Weekend Market, Chatuchak (Mochit BTS Station)
-Suan Lum Night Baazar, Lumpini
-Platinium Mall, Pratunam
Maybe you can try Bo Bae on Krung Kasem Road near Yotse Bridge in Chinatown. It is specialise in wholesale clothes.
Should give a try to Saphan Phut on Triphet Rd in Chinatown.
ARGH!!! forgoten another important place. PATPONG & SILOM!!!! Famous with copy watches, Fake Levi's, pirate Cds and also shirts!!!
I would say Bangkok is better and cheaper. I think opospa has covered the main shopping areas in each place.
The platinum mall would be my choice to go too!
Chatuchak Weekend Market is a good place to shop for clothes or anything else, for that matter.
The only annoying thing about shopping in Bangkok is that u have to bargin. It can be a pain.
