Amazing Thailand Grand Sale 2016: Why should you fly to Bangkok for this?




Amazing Thailand Grand Sale 2016-22.jpg

The Amazing Thailand Grand Sale is the biggest shopping sale season in Bangkok that happens from June 15 to August 15, 2016. The campaign is the brainchild of the Tourism Authority of Thailand, which started in 1999 in partnership with VISA International. It's scheduled ahead of the Singapore and Hong Kong sales.

Here's why you should consider flying to Bangkok for this...

Bangkok is the place to be for both high-end and bargain shopping. We love Bangkok because of its vibrant food scene and amazing Thai street food.

Now is the best time to go while you can get 20% to 50% discount on quality selections. Towards the end of the sale season, you can get 70% and even as much as 80% discount.

All the malls are concentrated at the center of Bangkok and you can easily travel via the BTS Train System.

We love the design of the malls, which makes shopping fun and exciting. I like the hip experimental vibe of the Siam Discovery Center.
