Bangkok is no stranger to holiday-makers looking for a quick weekend getaway from Singapore.
When I’m not stuffing my face with papaya salad, basil pork and my favourite moo ping (grilled pork skewers) at hole-in-the-wall eateries, or squeezing through throngs of tourists at night markets, you’ll find me seeking refuge from the hot sun in shopping malls.
Don’t get me wrong, I love the malls not only to enjoy the aircon — more shopping can be done and you can find some really good cafes too.
But I’ve lost count of the number of times I’ve been to Siam Paragon, CentralWorld, Platinum Fashion Mall and other frequently-visited malls along the sky bridge.
So, if you’re like me and need a breath of fresh air, here are some alternative malls in Bangkok to explore.
CENTRAL VILLAGE MALL
Central Village Mall is Bangkok’s first luxury outlet mall, and if you’re thinking of making a quick pitstop to and from Suvarnabhumi International Airport, the new mall is just a 10-minute drive away.
