Bangkok Shop ‘Till you Drop

Bangkok Shop UNTIL YOU DROP! Alt. Title – Leave the Mrs at Home!

It’s called Bangkok Shop ‘Till you Drop because lets be honest – after parties and ladies (and ladyboys) Thailand’s capital is a consumers’ paradise.

Everyone has heard the excuse “Sorry, my dog ate my homework.” It’s not funny or believable. The Burmese version of this joke is “Sorry the internet is out/incredibly slow in the entire country, turns out an internet cable was cut somewhere up north in the jungle.” Well, at least they didn’t say a tiger or elephant ate/stepped on it. Or something. Whatever, the internet’s back online for now so I can now share with ya’ll our trip to lovely Bangkok, Thailand. Going to hit it in three parts so here’s today’s rather short first installment on shopping.

Bangkok is a a cash dump. I mean with every type of food imaginable, store imaginable, etc. you can literally blow your trip’s budget in a day. But hey, when you miss Starbucks’ coffee, $10 is no problem. In fact, I was happy to pay it #SkinnyLightCaramelFrappacinoForTheWin. Yeah, just like that. After getting our Starbucks’ fix, we headed down Sukhumvit way to the famous Terminal 21 Shopping Mall. Let me tell you, it was worth it.

Each floor of the 9-story complex is themed for a different part/city of the world: the Caribbean, Rome, Tokyo, Paris, San Franciso, Istanbul, London and Hollywood. The intricate detail that went into each floor is incredible and the amount of stores… well there’s a lot.

Most stores accept either Baht or US Dollars, so keeping track of the exchange rate helps. Money changers are aplenty in the mall along with free WiFi, however foreigners must register at one of two “gates,” whereas locals can register at any of the numerous computers in the complex.
