LUXE Shopping Itinerary

October 31, 2013
Charoen Krung Road

Silver and jewellery and antiques, oh my! The sois off Bangkok’s Charoen Krung Road are a haven of fab shopportunity. Start at the top of Charoen Krung Soi 40, head down the soi and detour right into the little sub-soi to find at #9 Lin Jewelers for great silver goods. Back to the soi and carry on for Thai Home Industries – a rich repository of pearlware, bronze and nickel tableware. Behind this store on Soi 38 is O.P. Place mall, a cornucopia of swink-a-dink retail including Uma for tasteful baubles and trinkets; objets d’art at Objects; and the divine antiques specialist Ashwood Gallery.

Zip back up to Charoen Krung and head left, hailing a cab to take you to Soi 30. Nip down the soi and a couple of stores up on the left is Four Sisters in Gallery Café for beaded bags and frocks and Thai food, plus upstairs Nuad-Sa-Bai for a handy Thai, Swedish or foot massage. Refreshed? Exit, then head left, taking the first left into a cul-de-sac to find all the stunning bronze and brass designer tables at P. Tendercool, and more antiques, sculpture and C.18-19th Chinese furniture at Grusenmeyer. Back to the soi, and carry on round to find the huge River City mall – a four-storey cache of antique (and fauxtique) treasures. Now, that’s shopping, Thai style!
