I used to live in Bangkok for a while and wouldn't buy a camera or any upscale electronics there again. I once asked a shopkeeper in the Panthip Plaza about international warranty and he replied that he could 'print me one'. 'Return policy' ? Unheard of in most of the stores I visited. Malaysia (KL, Georgetown) has been a different story altogether.

Do you realize that Panthip Plaza is full of grey market and counterfeit goods?

I wouldn't buy ANYTHING at Panthip without realizing it could be less than perfect.

But to say you wouldn't buy any camera or upscale electronics in Bangkok is...well...

There are some VERY reputable camera shops and computer shops in Bangkok (as most SEA countries) but Panthip Plaza is not one of them.
