Can anyone recommend any places in Bangkok to find camping gear? Just general stuff like camping chairs, etc. It is specifically a comfortable folding chair I looking for one for my hide - my old Karana one broke and the Karana replacement I got is just not strong nor comfy after an hour.
I used to use the Super Sports in Fortune tower - it closed.
I used the Super Sports in Central Pinklao - they closed the camping section
Then I used a small camping shop on the second floor of Seacon - it closed.
Someone recommended Super Sports in the new Central Rama 9 - its very small with useless selection.
I have been using the Super Sports in Paradise (old Seri Centre) which has the largest camping section I have found so far in Bangkok but its a pain in the butt to get to from where I live.
I have bought stuff like camping chairs/hammocks/sleeping bags/pillows/flashlights/ in the Amarin shopping centre next to the BTS chidlom. There are a few decent camping/outdoor stores on the 2nd or 3rd floor if I remember correctly.
Hope this helps..
If you cannot find what you are looking for then as a last resort whilst in that area then you could try Central Chidlom department store on the opposite side of sukhumvit road. They have a Sports World that has a small selection of camping gear aswell.
Many thanks for the recommendation Luke, I found it. Back of the store on the first floor. Did not have what I was looking for, none of the chairs were comfy, but the best general selection of general outdoor gear in one spot in Thailand I have seen. Thanks.
I have ordered a new camping/hide chair from eBay, same as my old one that I liked. I ended up paying twice as much with shipping and customs on top but worth it, to me, for the comfort.
