Bangkok was recently rated as the second best place to shop in the world and visitors travel from all over to enjoy its delights. The choice is excellent, the prices good, and there are options of modern, air-conditioned malls, exciting markets or sophisticated specialty stores. The problem has been how to sort out where to go and what to buy. A new version of the popular Bangkok Bargain Shopping app, available for Android and Apple devices, has solved this problem.
Experienced travel writer and author, Len Rutledge, has produced an app which gives shopping advice about costs and prices, bargaining, VAT refunds and getting around. It then details the things to buy and gives descriptions of the major shopping areas of the city. There are then details of 16 shopping malls, the best markets and some specialty shops and shopping experiences. Newly added is a section on suggested hotels which can make your shopping experience smooth and efficient.
Addresses, telephone numbers, and web sites are given and each location is shown on a map. This truly is your perfect Bangkok shopping companion. It can save you a great amount of time and hundreds of dollars by showing you where to go and what to do. There are words, photographs, video and maps. As one regular Bangkok visitor said, “I only wish I had this advice when I first went to Bangkok!”
