Anantara Baan Rajprasong Serviced Suites The “Bangkok City Break” for Shoppers
26 Jun 2009
Anantara Baan Rajprasong Serviced Suites, the latest property in Thailand under the prestigious Anantara Brand is now offering an irresistible deal for the ultimate Bangkok discovery and shopping trip!
Located in a serene street that is closed to through traffic, Anantara Baan Rajprasong is just 100 metres away from the main road and the Ratchadamri BTS Skytrain station, making it perfect for those who want to be in the middle of the action. With the City Break package, guests will be provided with a one-day pass on the BTS sky train which can be used to experience the ultimate shopping thrills in Bangkok!
Here are a couple of top shopping tips from Anantara all located along the BTS Sky Train stations:
Siam Square & Rajprasong Intersection (Siam Station): is known as one of the best cosmopolitan shopping districts in Asia, from ultimate luxurious brands, to unique collections by local designers, and cheap and chic street goodies! In this area, guests can enjoy strolling around the neighborhood using the lofty skywalk bridge which connects to all leading shopping stores and squares such as Siam Paragon, Siam Center, Siam Discovery Center, Central World, Gaysorn Plaza, Erawan, and Amarin Plaza. Apart from shopping, Anantara also recommends a visit to some famous, stunningly vibrant and colourful Buddha shrines as the district is also known as the holy sacred quarter.
Chatuchak Weekend Market (Mo Chit Station): known locally as JJ market, this shopper's paradise is Thailand's (and perhaps Asia's) ultimate shopping hub, selling all kinds of goods at the most competitive prices. From delicious local eats to clothes, art, jewelry, antique furniture and much more - Chatuchak has it all, so hone your bargaining skills! Not far from JJ Market there is also a food market called ‘Bon Marche' selling high quality vegetables, fruit and all kinds of delicious treats.
Sukhumvit (Nana, Promphong, and Thong Lor stations): Nana is a vibrant shopping area that has a number of souvenir shops, furniture showrooms and high-quality tailors creating made-to-measure dresses and suites. Nana also offers an abundance of leading night clubs including the globally renowned Bed Supper Club and Q Bar! At Promphong BTS station, the Emporium Shopping complex is one of the best shopping spots in Bangkok. In addition, the mall has numerous high quality dining experiences as well as the couture labels from all over the world such as Hermes, Louis Vuitton, Fendi, Gucci and many more. Next stop on the BTS Skytrain will bring you to the new lifestyle area called "Thong Lor", a hip and fashionable part of the city that has a range of unique products shops, divine little boutiques and luxurious cars for sale - just incase you were in the mood!
Silom/ Sathorn (Sala Daeng and Chong Nonsi Stations): this area has an amazing variety of restaurants and bars! Guests can also enjoy checking out the numerous souvenir and clothes stalls that have something for everyone. During the week, it is also recommended to go to "Lalaisub" shopping street which is open from 10am to 4pm. Along this street guests will find a number of goods from food and clothes to jewelry and more, all just 5 minutes walk from Silom. This area also boasts a very famous Indian Temple, "Wat Kaek", where locals worship and pray for better fortune!
Chaophraya River (Saphan Taksin Station): this is the best location to experience the culture and traditions of Bangkok's waterways! The Chaophraya River is known as the artery of Bangkok and provides a unique glimpse of life on the river - barges hauling huge loads to far flung destinations, longtail boats plying the canals branching off the river and local restaurants serving the catch of the day. Guests should take a local speedboat to different sides of the river for souvenir shopping and of course a visit to the renowned Grand Palace and Temple of the Emerald Buddha. Anantara recommends that guests also discover a slow paced visit of the river on the beautifully restored rice-barge, the ‘Manohra' cruise - Bangkok's best cruising experience for either a leisurely cocktail or a wonderful dinner.
In a tribute to the spirit of modern Bangkok, Anantara Baan Rajprasong is the epitome of cosmopolitan elegance and refined service for discerning guests looking for a home from home in the heart of the city.
