Thailand has never been a cheap place to buy a camera and the price of the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GL7p340 in Bangkok is no exception. This is generally the case for all very new items and then the price falls back again. This indicates how wealthy Thailand is becoming as well as the high importation taxes of luxury goods.
There is no current saving to be had buying the Panasonic DMC-GF7 in Bangkok or Thailand claiming back the VAT but you really have to ensure you are getting a universal warranty with that - and we doubt you will. Most camera warranties are for the country in which they were bought.
If you were already in Thailand and needed to buy a camera, then the extra cost is not so much as to make it silly to buy one and don't expect to haggle your way to a bargain; it's not going to happen.
If you are coming to Bangkok or Thailand and were thinking of waiting to buy one when you arrive, then we suggest you don't. Buy it before coming to Thailand as you might get it cheaper and you"ll have the correct warrany.
Where Can I Buy The Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF7 in Bangkok?
As with most items, head off to MBK to buy your camera. MBK is probably the best place to buy a camera in Bangkok and most of the professional camera shops can be found there including Foto File, Foto Thailand, Big Camera, Sunny's (Nikon specialists) and a number of others.
Central World Plaza, which is not far from MBK, also has a number of good camera shops but you'll probably get the "best price" in MBK as there are smaller stalls where you can haggle over the price a bit more.
These are not the only malls to sell cameras. You will find cameras shops or stalls in most, if not all, major shopping malls in Bangkok but MBK stands head and shoulders above the rest for choice.
