Visitors travel from all over the world to shop in Bangkok. In recent years Bangkok has become the best place in Asia to shop. The choice is excellent, the prices good, and whether you want gleaming, modern, air-conditioned malls or the hustle and bustle of its famously buzzing street markets, Bangkok has it all. The problem has been how to sort out where to go and what to buy. A new app, Bangkok Bargain Shopping, available for Android and iPhone devices, has solved this problem.
Experienced travel writer and author, Len Rutledge, has investigated the highs and lows of Bangkok’s shopping options. The result is an app which gives shopping advice about costs and prices, bargaining, VAT refunds and getting around. It then details the things to buy and gives descriptions of the major shopping areas of the city. There are then details of 16 shopping malls, the best markets and some specialty shops which can complete your shopping experience.
Addresses, telephone numbers, and web sites are given and each location is shown on a map. This truly is your perfect Bangkok shopping companion. It can save you a great amount of time and hundreds of dollars by showing you where to go and what to do. There are words, photographs, video and maps. We only wish we had this advice when we first went to Bangkok!
The app has been created by the author himself using map2app, an amazing web-based platform for turning travel content into a mobile app. It is free to use and it is the perfect tool for non-developers who have great local content and want to transform it into a mobile travel guide. This revolutionary product was launched few weeks ago and has already been adopted by many professional travel writers who created more than 60 travel guides… is this brand new tool going to disrupt the travel apps market?
