Hardware at Pantip Plaza

The shops in Pantip Plaza offer a wide selection of new and second-hand computers from most major manufacturers.

A wide variety of other electronic equipment such as digital cameras, printers, audio players, and game consoles are also available.

Software, Games, Movies

Pantip Plaza is a major source of unauthorized copies of the software for Windows and Mac.

Easily available as well as pirated copies of music and films, including pornographic ones, which are sold from the many stalls on the three lower floors.

Some legal software is available but is less popular, and the versions for sale are often obsolete.

Attention!
These pirate programs are often full of viruses and spyware!

Food and drink

Le Pantip has a few restaurants on the ground floor, shops on the mezzanine and on the second floor that offer a wide selection of Thai dishes, desserts, and drinks.

Pantip in popular culture

The Pantip Plaza is known throughout Thailand because it is featured in a Sek Loso song, “Pantip,” which has a chorus “Ja Mai Pai Pantip” (“จะ ไม่ ไป พันธุ์ ทิพย์” – “I wouldn’t go to the Pantip”).

The song tells the story of a man who goes shopping with his girlfriend at the World Trade Center, MBK Center and Siam Square, but refuses to take him to the Pantip because his ex-girlfriend works there.
