If there’s one thing that Pratunam is best known for, it’s shopping. If you’re on a shopping trip to Bangkok, this is the best place to stay and that’s certainly with good reason. This part of Bangkok is truly a shopper’s paradise.
But, that’s not all there is to Pratunam. If you’re the type of traveller who wanders on foot into little lanes to find the hidden gems, then Pratunam is perfect for you too. Many of Pratunam’s fine qualities are overshadowed by its reputation as a shopping phenomenon. But for any who look a little deeper, you’ll find an area with a fascinating history, some true Bangkok icons, amazing places to eat and a deep love of art and music. If you’re a jazz fan, then you’re in the hippest part of town after dark.
