Reminiscent of Hong Kong’s IFC shopping mall, the gleaming Siam Paragon is right next to the BTS Siam Square station and tends to attract travellers with well-endowed wallets and an eye for luxury designer brands.
Put on your walking shoes (or buy some new ones) and explore everything from Hermes, Giorgio Armani, TOD's, Gucci, Bulgari, Jeffrey Cambell, Shanghai Tang and Coach to Swarovski and a fully functioning Ocean World.
In October 2017, a Johnnie Walker Black Label one litre bottle was priced at Bt1,250 (around US$37 or a dollar more than in 2015), while a 12-year-old one litre bottle of duty-free Chivas Regal was priced at Bt1,300 (US$39).
Ladies can follow the scent straight to Dior where a j'adore 50ml eau de parfum is priced at Bt3,900 (US$117, up from $102 in 2015).
Duty-free shopping at Bangkok's Suvarnabhumi airport is a breeze airside with acres of romp room.
