There are a variety of shopping areas nearby the hotel.

From there it is a few minutes walk to the CentralWorld Shopping complex. One stop further on the Skytrain would take you to the terminal National Stadium Station, and a skywalk would lead you directly into the MBK Shopping complex. In the evenings, we would suggest Asiatique, a night bazaar within a 15 minute walk from the hotel. There you will find many shops, restaurants, shows and a large Ferris wheel.

 We recommend the Banmai local market, which is around a 10-15 minute walk from the hotel. Turn right on Charoen Krung Road, the main road in front of the hotel, and cross the road to get to the opposite side. Turn left into Soi 85 and walk until you see the market.
