I'd always heard that Southeast Asia was THE place to buy cheap electronics. Now, I really didn't need any cheap electronics, but I figured, hey. If I'm here, I should at least look. And the place to look in Bangkok is a huge mall that (I was told, but I put little trust in) is named "Computer City". Basically, it has everything that blinks and beeps, put under one roof. It has cameras, computers, laptops, electronic components, new stuff, old stuff, indescribable stuff. It has it all. Unfortunately, I didn't need any of it, so the window shopping grew boring pretty quick (though the free Internet cafe to be found inside came in mighty handy). My favorite part of the mall actually has nothing to do with computers at all. Rather, it was the ultra-cheap sushi restaurant with a surprisingly good selection at incredible prices.
