If you notice a red bag sign in a shop's window, it means the two-month-long sale has already started. The Thailand Grand Sale offers very serious bargains with discounts of up to 80% in big shopping malls and small local businesses. Sale season is spread all over the country covering most Thai tourist destinations—Bangkok, Phuket, Chiangmai, Hat Yai, Hua Hin, Koh Samui, and Pattaya.
The most famous shopping district in Bangkok is the Siam area with many well-known brands, boutiques, and malls. Popular shopping malls in Bangkok also include Pan Tip Plaza on New Phetchaburi Road in Ratchathewi, Platinum Fashion Mall on Phetchaburi Road in Pratunam. Near the mall, there is also The Pratunam Market with lower-key shopping options. The Chatuchak Weekend Market on Kamphaeng Phet 2 Road in Chatuchak, is another excellent place for a shopping spree.
The Grand Sale runs from the middle of June until the middle of August. If you are visiting Thailand during this time, don't miss the chance to buy your dream bag or those high-heel shoes you've always wanted! Keep in mind that the tourist season is slow during the summer months in Bangkok due to extremely rainy weather. As a result, you'll also be able to get good deals on hotels, flights, and other activities.
