Group Xmas shopping trip to IKEA & Mega Bang Na
Looking for 6-8 parents to join on a Xmas shopping trip to Mega Bang Na.
Mega Bang Na on the outskirts of Bangkok is a very large mall and contains the one and only IKEA in Thailand.
It's a great place for some Xmas shopping. IKEA in particular has wrapping paper, decorations, tableware, candles and much more.
The attached mall has the usual high street places (Zara, H&M, CPS, Jaspal etc), also a Central Shopping mall, lots of boutique stores and stall and plenty of 'Moshi Moshi' type places which are great for innovative little stocking fillers.
Not to forget there are a zillion places to eat there too!
It's a hassle to drive up to Mega Bang Na, especially for parents who are not so confident on the road. Plus it's better to car pool when we can!
I have asked my taxi company for a quote to hire a luxury mini van for the round trip. He quoted 4,800baht for 8-9 passengers.
I suggest we keep it to 8 max and thus each ticket will cost 600baht - maybe a bit more if we only have 6 passengers.
I suggest a mid-week trip, leave at around 9am (IKEA opens at 10am) and depart Mega Bang Na around 2pm?
Meeting point could be at Little Walk, Starbucks...?
We could even squeeze in 2 or 3 trips before Xmas if there is enough interest...
Please share your thoughts about this idea below.
This this is a great idea ? I am guessing it will pick up / drop off in Pattaya / Sukhumvit area ?
Following to see , sorry can't commit right now 🤔
