Bangkok being a tourism giant has a vast diversity of shopping culture and brands. When we talk about shopping and brands at the same time, the focus goes to the ubiquitous and ever-expanding collection of malls in the capital. Because a mall is the only place where one can find all types of brands, food, movies and gaming arenas. Thus they mean a lot to a countries economical structure and tourism attraction.
- Another mall? The central business district of Bangkok is already overflowing with malls and shopping centres
- Whatever westerners may or may not feel about malls, Thais love them.
- Why is the mall dying in the West? Some blame can be attributed to the increasing popularity of online shopping.
“It would be a surprise if the adherents of a religion which so deeply values asceticism had zero objections to the construction of buildings whose raison d’être is to facilitate desire, a primary cause of suffering according to Buddhist teaching.”
