Mohamad

Mohamad

Charoen Krung Road

With it overflowing showcases and shelves, it is reminiscent of a Dickensian curiosity shop. But for 88 years, Mohamad has been a one-stop shop for those that still consider a handwritten letter, message, or note an art form. Fans of the low-tech missive can browse through the selection of paper and writing implements imported mostly from Europe. Ink pens start at Bt1,000 and come from brands like Sheaffer, Venus and Pelikan that were popular a few decades ago.

Asiatique

Asiatique

Chareonkrung Soi 74-76

The city’s newest shop ‘til you drop venue stretches 300 metres along the Chao Phraya River and fills the immense gap left by the closure of the Suan Lum Night Bazaar.

Its present day name is a tip of the hat to the Danish company, The East Asiatic Company Ltd that helped construct the port.

Divided into four zones, Asiatique offers over 1,500 boutiques and 40 restaurants are spread through huge warehouse complexes that reflect the once-bustling port’s architecture. The small attractive boutiques in the Charoen Krung ...
