The Paseo Mall is located on the continuation of On Nut road that later becomes Lat Krabang road.
You will find that it is conveniently located close to Bangkok Airport and on the right hand side as you head towards the airport from Bangkok.
You can easily get a taxi from the Bangkok Airport to the Paseo Shopping Mall or stop here on your way to the airport, if you have some time to kill.
Paseo Mall Opening Hours: 10:00 am to 10 pm daily
The Paseo Shopping Mall has a range of indoor shops and outdoor stalls and there is ample parking in the multi level car park, if you come in your own car.
If you visit Bangkok then there is no better relaxation than to get a Thai Massage to undo those stiff and tense muscles after hours of travelling.
On the upper level of the Paseo Mall there is a reputable Thai Massage shop where they provide a range of treatments at an affordable price.
If you have never had a Thai Massage before then let me outline the process for you.
Firstly you need to leave your shoes outside the door of the shop before you enter.
If the shop is not busy there may be space on the shoe rack, or if not then just leave your shoes with the others.
Don't worry, they will still be there when you come out.
Outside the shop is a large board indicating prices and the different types of massage available.
It is normal to choose a massage of one or two hours in length.
Once you enter you can tell the lady at the desk, your massage choice and length.
She will probably understand English, but you can practice your Thai if you are confident.

For foot massage or for a neck and shoulder massage you will get your treatment in a reclining chair.
For a Thai massage they will lead you to the curtained booths at the back.
On the bed will be a pair of pyjamas, take off your gear and put them on and hopefully you can do it before the massage lady comes back.
Hang your clothes on the hanger or otherwise fold them and place them near to the head of the bed.
The person assign to provide the massage will come with some warm water to wash your feet.
Sit near the edge of the bed and have your feet cleaned, often this is with granular salt.
Once dried your massage then commences, but you can direct the hardness or softness of the massage to get it to your liking.
After the completion of the massage, change back into your clothes and head to the front of the shop where you will be served some warm herbal tea.
Finally, pay for your massage as per the board price and don't forget to tip the masseuse as she will be standing there to farewell you.
Travellers who are in transit through Bangkok and have chosen to stay in some local accommodation, such as The Ivory Suvarnabhumi or the Regent Suvarnabhumi Hotels will find the Paseo Shopping Mall within a short walking distance.
If you have some time to kill during your Bangkok layover, then why not come and visit this modern, but authentic Thai night market, it is just a short walk away from these two Bangkok Airport hotels.
Don't expect a massive shopping mall as this is a small up-market shopping centre and restaurant complex specialising mostly in ladies fashion.
As well as having indoor shops there is also an outdoor night market that is well worth a visit.
The shopping mall is open from around 10:00 am to late and the night market is open daily, starting at about 4:00 pm.
In the late afternoon stallholders come to set up for the night market, unloading all their wares from the back of pickup trucks and small cars and reassembling their market stalls.
On a balmy Bangkok night there is nothing better than wandering amongst the shops and stalls and looking for that last minute present, or even just having a wander around, taking your time to browse the items on each stall.
The stallholders at the Paseo Shopping Mall are extremely friendly, although being this far from the tourist areas you will find that not all of them speak English.
But then that is part of the fun isn't it?
Negotiating with someone in a foreign language will give your trip that added dimension as you bargain for that little special item or piece of fashion.
Primarily the Paseo Shopping Mall caters to Thai locals and so they are not selling cushion covers or Buddha images, but more likely, shoes, ladies trousers and fashion items, watches and some fresh vegetables, but this all adds to the Bangkok shopping experience.
Ladies fashion wear for work or just the casual look are available now at the Paseo shopping mall.

MK Restaurants, McDonald's, Chesters Grill and KFC are all represented if you want some fast food.
But there are quite a number of other more traditional Thai restaurants located in the complex and you will be more than welcome if you invite a few of the stallholders for some dinner after they shut up shop.
