She has never liked to travel to Bangkok for more than 5 days on every trip. The hotel she stays, the places she goes, the shops and food stalls she patronizes are pretty predictable. She doesn't explore beyond Bangkok, or rather beyond Platinum Mall, Siam Paragon and MBK.
When she came over to my house yesterday, I told her that she will not like Chiang Mai for one reason. There are nothing for her to shop.
Well, not exactly. There are a lot of things to buy. But those aren't the things she will be interested in. And there aren't that many shopping centers.
There's an old and tired looking Kad Suan Kaew which houses Central Departmental Store and a few familiar brands such as KFC, Swenson, Dunkin Donuts, Mister Donut and Starbucks. Opposite this mall is the MK restaurant, a popular chain restaurant selling Dim Sum and chinese food common in Bangkok.
Other than this, there's a Pantip Plaza which sells computers and electronic gadgets. There's a food court inside and unlike it's Bangkok counterpart, consists of a few individually run stalls with very olden feel seating area.
