Visitors travel from all over the world to shop in Bangkok. In recent years Bangkok has become the best place in Asia to shop. The choice is excellent, the prices good, and whether you want modern, air-conditioned malls, the hustle of its famous markets or the sophistication of its specialty shops, Bangkok has it all. The problem has been how to sort out where to go and what to buy. I hope that my new app, Bangkok Bargain Shopping, available for Android and iphone/ipad devices, has solved this problem.
During the writing process I investigated the highs and lows of Bangkok’s shopping options. The result is 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 which can complete your shopping experience.
Addresses, telephone numbers, and web sites are given and each location is shown on a series of maps. I believe that 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 put it, “We only wish we had this advice when we first went to Bangkok!”
Point to Ponder:
Success is just a matter of luck. Ask any failure.
