'Variety' is the name, when it comes to shopping in Thailand. Not only does the country offers an extensive collection of products and accessories, but also presents a huge range of shopping destinations. Especially, the capital city of Bangkok provides an amazing shopping experience, with its lines of contrasting shopping pleasures. From the upscale shopping malls, floating markets and night bazaars to outdoor markets, the place has it all. Among its many shopping locales is the Bo Bae Market and Bobae Tower in Central Bangkok, an excellent stop for grabbing some great shopping goodies.
Just like the sophisticated lot loves to explore places like Siam
Paragon, Central World Plaza and MBK (Mah Boon Krong) Mall, visitors who
want to make bulk purchases head to the Bo Bae Market. Located on Krung
Kasem Road, east of Banglampoo, in Central Bangkok, it is a well-known
wholesale market of the city. Operating for more than 30 years, it is
very popular among the locals as well as tourists, for its inexpensive
range of garments and clothing. Most clothes here are sold by dozen and
sometimes, even more.
Therefore, people who are looking forward to buying loads of good
quality clothes, at amazingly low prices, should take a trip to Bobae.
However, make sure to haggle for the price, or else the vendor might
just take you for a good ride. People, who are finicky about colors,
sizes or are looking for designer wears, should better avoid Bobae.
Besides, people who are not up for wholesale shopping, but would like to
buy similar products in smaller numbers, can also visit the Bobae Tower,
located near the market. There are more than 700 shops in the tower that
is a heaven for Thai merchants, exporters and tourists.
