    B-Gallery Fashion Mall

    Baiyoke Gallery Fashion Mall (B-Gallery) is a modern and spacious mall in the very center of Pratunam. The 5-storey building contains mostly independent retailers specializing in clothing and accessories. The entire place feels a bit like an air-conditioned, roomier extension of the better-known Pratunam Market.

    Novel features like the fake grass lawn, an English post box, and bright designs draw similarities to the larger and more popular Terminal 21 on Sukhumvit Road. Bargaining is advisable, though most of the prices on dresses, T-shirts, accessories and electronics are quite cheap.
