HEY GAIS WELCOME TO THE 2ND INSTALMENT OF MY BANGKOK TRAVELOGUE! :D If you missed the 1st instalment (now how did THAT happen?!??), READ IT NOW.
Now that you know where to put up in Bangkok and how to get around without getting lost, today’s post will be about what you’ve been waiting for – EATING AND SHOPPING IN BANGKOK!!!!
#1 MUST-VISIT EATING & SHOPPING PLACE – THE PLATINUM FASHION MALL
The Platinum Fashion Mall by day
Remember I said our hotel sits right across The Platinum Fashion Mall? Even for someone who’s super suaku like me, and who’d thought I’LL NEVER EVER GO TO BANGKOK AGAIN after what happened on my last trip, I’d heard so much about The Platinum Fashion Mall (I’ll just call it “Platinum Mall” from now). It’s one of the BIGGEST WHOLESALE CLOTHES HAVEN, with some of the BEST FOOD VENDORS gathered at its food court to boot!
After you’ve been to Platinum Mall, you’ll never look at our blog shops the same way ever again.

4 tips on how to shop at the Platinum Mall
(1) Start from the first floor and work your way up!
Platinum Mall is PACKED with 6 FLOORS’ WORTH of shops, shops, shops, MORE shops selling similar/identical stuff. If you want to make decent coverage in one day, you need a plan! I suggest you start from the first floor and work your way up. That way, you’ll know which parts of the mall you’ve covered. Also, since there are so many freakin’ shops, SHOP QUICKLY!
