The super-popular Amazing Thailand Grand Sale stretches from Bangkok shopping malls to small independent boutiques, with tempting discounts ranging from 10 to 80 per cent. Up for grabs are fashion, accessories, electrical goods and sneakers. You can also score sweet deals on dining, travel, entertainment and activities.
Set your compass for the Siam district, near BTS Siam, the heart of the revved-up retail action, embracing Siam Paragon (luxe fashion and accessories), Siam Center (young, emerging Thai design labels), and Siam Discovery (haute global designers), which will all take part in the Grand Sale.
Other malls getting in on the scene include Emporium (chic fashion) near Phrom Pong, and Gaysorn (international and local designer names) and CentralWorld (global mid-range brands) in Chit Lom. Just keep your peepers peeled for the red bag sign, which marks participating venues. Also look out for buzzy pop-ups offering flash sales in the shopping centres, from stylish fashion to sportswear and shoes.
Attracting travellers from across Asia and beyond, this superb shopathon is a great reason to hit Thailand in the off-peak season, with discounts spilling beyond Bangkok.
