Been like that since the coup. Started going downhill within a few months and has never recovered.

The computer shops seem to be the hardest hit.

On the other hand the amulet business is actually expanding and now has places on the second floor.

Food court is still good and the weekend flea market on top is always interesting. Often see the occasional foreigner selling stuff there.

Which one you went?

Pratunam or Ngamwongwan.

 

Pratunam had a renovation craze, and after that many shops did not return. The rent was too high and the ambiance was gone. 

On the Ngamwongwan it is still the same as before, it was not great compared with the Pratunam one and still is.

But at least, they did not change. The same shops still here, mostly for printers, ink and cables it is fine.

Pratunam was better, as it has more gadget, 2nd hand computer parts, games, and so on.. but now.. phone phone phone and cables cables.

They had a concurrence too at the Palladium IT, opposite the junction. 

And that mall now is dead more then Pantip self. Only 5% of the shops is open, the rest is nada zero.

(I am talking about the IT floors, not about the floors below.)

Palladium has the idea it would run great and had even a sixth floor ready for shops next to the 4th and 5th, but that floor never opened.

 

It is all faling, online and interrest and rent.

 

I stick with Zeer Rangsit, it is renovating too but it seems that the stores not dying, only some changing old goes new come.

Pantip on the Ngamwongwan, in the weekend a great fleamarket in the parkinglot on the top floor.

I fully agree with Denim.

 

The only reason for me to go there, about two times a year.

That's one reason I quit going to Pantip- the aggressive porn hawkers.  I have nothing against porn itself.  I just don't like it when anyone gets right up in my face to try to sell me something I didn't set out for.
