A hip and modern business district is Pathum Wan with skyscrapers hiding offices and hotels. The modernity is repeatedly interrupted by traditional Hindu shrines. If you come to Bangkok for shopping, this is the place to be: malls upon malls can be found in the district, including the imposing CentralWorld on seven ultra-modern floors. In the centers, shopping fans get everything, especially fashion and technology, of course. Lumphini Park is a great place to take a deep breath, as well as for Tai Chi in the morning or pedal boating on one of the lakes.
