A Shoppin Spree 1

Carabao T-Shirt: 99 bht
Red Bull Muay Thai Short: 199bht

Street along Phetchaburi (pronouced Phetburi), Pratunam District.
Only manage to take 2 before their closing time. Which is 9pm.
Manage to browse Pratunam Complex but nothing amazing there.
So headed to 7-11 to get beers, only to realize it's about RM3 per bottle/can.

Boxer: 120 bht for 2
Working Pants: 230bht
Working Clothes: 190bht
Belts: 320bht for 3
Muay Thai T-Shirt: 99bht
Cut design T-shirt: 135 bht each
Mini T-Shirt: 99 bht
Basketball Jersy: 99 bht
Skirt: 190 bht

The next day, we accidentaly stumbled upon Pratunam Wholesale Market.
There's a shortcut from Petburi Soi 19 & 21 (Soi - Street/Jalan). Find all the clothes & apparel you need at wholesale price. This is the place where other the 'Chatuchak' & 'Suan Lum Night Bazaar' take their stock from. From this big market, you can see Baiyoke Tower as well.

Feel good T-Shirt: 295bht
Muay Thai DVD: 350 bht
Handcuff actual size & weight: 1200 bht
K800i Screen Protector: 150 bht
Watch: 500 bht
Earphone Gadget: 50 bht
Toy: 39 bht

From there then we headed to MBK Center, the largest shopping mall near Silom. Silom it's like a shopping district la, like our Sg. Wang area.
Nearby MBK there's others like Siam Center, Siam Square (pronounce Siam Se-kue),
Siam Paragon & Siam Discovery Center (branded stuff)
Easily reachable by BTS (BTS - LRT) @ National Stadium Station / Siam Station.

In MBK, there's a very big DVD store where you can find EVERY SINGLE DVD titles. There's even a book with PRIDE color on it.

And when there's no stock / or you buy alot, they will send it to your address within 24 hours.
So head there early if you plan to bring back some copies of DVD. (only worth it if for sure you can't find those titles here in KL, JB, Penang)
The DVDs pricing ain't as low as here.

Thai Style Shirt: 120 bht
Hole Free Earring: 25 bht
Toys: 60 bht
Candle Holder/Tray: 300 bht

Aha. Khao San Road. A place for 'Fareng' (Quai Lows). All marked up price items. A road just like our Petaling St. Cheap motels, backpackers are all located around.
There's even a muay thai gym nearby and all i see are farengs putting RM40 for 3 hours of class. OMG. But most of the trainers do speak fair english.
And there's a airport coach station (non aircondition) located here. 100 bht per head.

(Note: -Not worth if you are not travelling alone, as you can easily get to the airport between 250 bht - MAX 400 bht, depending on your negotitation skills.)

*more to come tomorrow, will compile guide whenever i can. :)
