Pratunam has been Bangkok’s largest wholesale neighborhood for ages. The area at the corner of Petchaburi and Ratchaprarop roads might look dodgy from the outside but the real trading activities are taking place behind the streetside shophouses. Inside, you’ll find all sorts of fashion apparels from printed t-shirts to trendy jeans at best bargained prices for wholesales. But if you are likely to buy fewer than 12 pieces, shops at wholesale malls across the street would offer better deals, though unable to compare with Pratunam wholesale prices.
Nearby Pratunam Market also finds Pantip Plaza, which is a popular IT mall you find everything about electronics devices, from latest mobile phone innovations to spare parts for you PC bought in the 90s.
Getting there: BTS Ratchathewi station and continue walking on Petchaburi Road for approx. 400 meters. Bus no. 2, 11, 23, 60, 62, 72, 93, 140, 511, 512
