Night Bazaar Building
The outdoor night bazaar is tat galore, but the Night Bazaar Bldg. half way along Chang Klan Rd. is worth a gander. Purses out! Up a small flight of steps to the 2/F from the main entrance you should easily spy Lanna Silver on your left at #104 / and also on your right at #51 / 053 279 126. On the same floor, head to the left side, where you’ll find two shops that stand out from the dross. Chilli at #25 / 053 818 475 / stocks Buddhas and Asian antiques while Under the Bô at #22 and #56 / 053 818 831 / has a considerable range of tribal artefacts. Now, exit the building the way you came in and turn right for mini-mall O. P. Place next door, attached to Le Méridien. Here you’ll find Vila Cini / 053 252 233 / vilacini. com / silk fash and home furnishings; Koch / 053 000 109 / koch-manufacturing.com / for beautiful bamboo baskets in all shapes and sizes as well as some very chic bronze lanterns; Sophie Roumeliotis / 053 252 767 / creationtamarine.com / for Thai and Balinese furniture, cushions, lighting, tableware and gift ideas; and Piklik / 053 252 373 / piklik.net / for pure white cotton/silk ’jamas n’ nighties. Right, that’s enough night shopping, it’s time for nightcapping. Feeling styley? Head to Mix Bar at nearby Dusitd2, or, relax with a crafty Campari at the Bar at The Chedi (see Bars for both). Fab!
