I just travelled to Bangkok over Easter for a short - but precious - shopping trip with my girls!
Nevermind the long flight hours, there is so much waiting for you that makes the long journey peanuts!!
Within 4 full days to indulge in this great and affordable shopping paradise you have plenty of time to discover the beauty of this one-of-a-kind metropolis.

Make sure you can stick to the following rules so you make the most out of your short trip!

1) Flying in with Thai Airways gives you a whole day to spend in Bangkok, at the arrival day as well as at the departure day. The convenient flight times give you more time on spot and make the pleasures of this city break even more unforgettable!
I know, usually for the flight selection the price is the major criteria, but make it a priority to find a flight that flies in to Bangkok as early as possible and to fly out as late as possible to get the outmost of your jorney…

2) If you feel tired after arriving in the early morning, after a hopefully relaxing and resting flight, try to sleep for another 2 hours, to gain some more energy…

3) Before you head out into the vibrant city life have a little lunch so you feel invigorated and powerful to explore everything.

4) Get the "Nancy Chandler's Map of Bangkok", it is the best to find your way through Bangkok and to get some extra hints on what to find where. You can get it at bookstores, at the airport or on the 5th floor at MBK (Mah Boon Krong-Shopping Mall) in the Naiin Bookstore!

5) To acclimatize best with the heat and humidity start your shopping spree at MBK. This huge Mall offers most of the very affordable market items in a climatized room, which prevents you from a climatic shock.

6) Try to stay awake as long as will help you to get into the thai-rhythm…

Thailand is a shoppers paradise!! So many things which are very very expensive to get in Switzerland are offered here to very reasonable prices. Before leaving Switzerland and to get an idea on how much money you can save with certain items, check the prices of your birth-control pill, your contact-lenses etc. and then make sure you compare them with the prices in Thailand. You'll be amazed!

MBK - Mah Boon Krong - Mall. As mentioned earlier this Mall offers plenty of opportunities to shop for goods and great finds! Stroll around through the different soi's (hallways) and find everything you need and want. From souvenirs, to Winter-jackets, to great Jeans…everything you wish for is available to a great steal!

Nice bags you can find on the ground floor (which in Thailand is already the 1st floor!) at "TON". Make sure to bargain…the great prices you will be offered, will be lowered even a bit more!
Another great bags-shop is "PHARAOH" on the second floor… very friendly people who have a wide range of different bags.

I got my contact-lenses for half than the price I would pay in Switzerland! My friends contacts were even a third of the Swiss price! A good place to buy them is: "Yours Optical" on the ground floor (1st floor!)

There are several pharmacies offering a great array of different medical supplies and drugs. Get you birth-control pill for not even a quarter of your Swiss price! Don't forget to check other drugs as Aspirin, Ponstan etc. you can get everything without a medical prescription!

If you want to get your hair refreshed, why not going to the hairdresser "Big Cut" on the 4th floor? They wash and blowdry your hair the way you want for only Baht 200.- (~CHF 6.-)

Another great place is right adjacent to MBK (exit on 2nd floor!). It's a little mall full of Manicure and pedicure places for a reasonable price! When getting out of the little Mall, you'll get to another neat place called "SIAM SQUARE". It is an open air area and in all the little soi's (side-roads) they offer one-of-a-kind small young designer clothes. Don't forget to bargain in those stores too…you'll surely get a discount!!

There you'll also find a great hairdresser called "Before & After" it's on Siam Square, Soi 2. They will wash and blowdry your hair for only Baht 250.- and you'll get a great headmassage included!

Chatuchak Market (JJ-Market) on the weekends Chatuchak market is very popular with tourists and locals too! This humungous market is a special place where you'll be able to find boutiques with clothes, shoes, bags etc. From the 1st to the 3rd road you'll find great places with great deals!
When hungry go to the JJ-Market hall. You can get there a nice Thai-style lunch for only Baht 30.- (CHF 1.-)

Suan Lum-Night Market is another nice market which opens daily from about 7pm until midnight! A great array of young designers and hip people sell their art and own clothingline. Find unique patterns along with the common souvenirs, furniture and much more.

SIAM Paragon Mall: A high class superb Mall with all the big designer labels (no fakes!). Make sure to check out the lower level where the food court is placed! The variety is immense and you could stay there forever and try all the different food styles. (Try the best Japanese-Burger in town at "MU-Burger"!! You'll be delighted!)

Make sure you visit a good spot for a real Thai Massage! Here are two options I've tried myself which are very recommendable:
-Health Land Spa & Massage Sathron (make sure to get an appointment in advance! Tel. 0-2637 8883)
2 hours Traditional Thai Massage costs Baht 450.- or 1,5 hours Aromatherapy Body Massage for Baht 850.-!
-Center Point Massage, 266/3 Siam Square Soi 3. Great for 1 hour foot massage at Baht 300.-. Make sure you can have the massage by "Pa", she is just fantastic!!

Here a couple of choices of restaurants, bars and clubs for you, which are rather expensive (western prices!) but are a nice option for a contrast.

-Long Table bar and restaurant…They have nice drinks, very good (but expensive) food and a beautiful balcony with a great view of the city!

-Vertigo & Moon Bar (@ Banyan Tree Hotel), a fantastic bar/restaurant on the top floor with a fantastic round view of the whole city! Enjoy fantastic drinks, extraordinary service and a little refreshing breeze on top of Bangkok!

-Koi - a great Japanese Restaurant with yummie sushi and great ambiente! (RSVP)

- Bed Supper Club - a Restaurant/Club with themed evenings and great food. (RSVP)

-Demo Club- on a big place with 2 other big clubs! Plenty of people, great sound and mediterrean ambiente!

- Tapas Club - a 3 storys high building, with different music on each floor!

What a fab city to visit!
Ladies go there and enjoy life, this city has so much to offer, you better go there and see it yourself...

Here my little insiders I got for you:

Try to explore the city, or at least parts of it by bike! It's worth it!!! Bike rentals are available every now and then!

The metro is super easy to travel around town and it is very affordable too…
1 ride costs you EUR 1.30 per person.
A 10 ride card cost EUR 17.- (valid for more than 1 person at the same time!)

Transportation from the airport to the city center are by taxi about EUR 25.-. Try the local bus for EUR 1.30 per person, it only takes about 15 minutes to get to Placa de España! Another great way to get to the citycenter is by "Aerobus" for EUR 5.- per person you can drive directly from the airport (or back) to downtown Barcelona.

Zara, Mango, Uterqüe, Massimo Dutti, Stradivarius, Bershka, Blanco, Sephora, name it... you can find everything you need around Portal d'Angel...but watch out...on a saturday it is a complete overload! Don't forget to walk the little side streets..there are plenty of more shops to explore!!

Great stores expensive and inexpenisve on the beautiful Passeig de Gracia.. walk from Placa Catalunya one side up, and the other one down! Don't miss it!

I must admit, Lingerie-Lovers are in paradise in Barcelona... you can get great finds @ Calzedonia, Women's Secret, Intimissimi etc.

Another great Shopping mile is at Calle Avinyo in Ciutat Vella! Thousands of little boutique-shops that invite you to spend your money there!

For Secondhand Shopping check out the area of Raval..

- Are you looking for a great one-of-a-kind present for your loved ones? Boutique OLIVE: a great boutique with wonderful Olive-viands (Placa de les Olles 2, area: Born)

-Stroll through the famous "La Bouqueria-Market", if possible early in the morning (round 10am)! Avoid it on Saturdays!!!

-For some High-End Shopping visit "Santa Eulalia". Louboutin shoes, Miu Miu Bags, fabulous accesories etc. YOU'LL LOVE IT! (Passeig de Gracia 93)

Mmmmmmmmmmmhh… I just love Spanish food… you can indulge in tapas all over Barcelona…
Find here some great suggestions I got from a girl who lived 6 months there plus some more great food experiences I received from my personal hero's for you to find out:
