Alongside its markets and shops, Bangkok has some great department stores and shopping centres where anything from shirts and trousers to gems and technology are available. Some shopping centres cover everything; places like MBK sell an enormous range of goods, while others concentrates on particular types of goods - Bangkok's Pantip Plaza, for example, is world famous as an outlet for every type of computer technology. Explore further and you can find entire neighbourhoods specialising in certain goods - Khao San Road, for instance, specialises in silver goods while its' neighbour China Town features gold shops and Chinese herbs and medicines.
