This is one huge market with so many roads and inter connectung streets. There are expensive shops in the mall and there are cheap stalls on the side of the streets where you can get bargains. My wife bought some pearls on strings and it costs about 150 Bhat each. The similar pearls at the Rangoon airport were $ 35... More

Shopping is great but go there for the food court!! Love how everything is in one area so you have a lot of varieties! Not recommended for the ones on a tight budget though.

Siam square is unique in the sense that within this area, you can find high end, mid range and even local haunt just turning the corner. You can pick a place to shop depending on your budget or taste.

If you want to buy international brands for garments, deodorants, perfumes, suites etc etc , then SIAM centre is the right place for you. Directly connected to the BTS station (In fact this is the cross-link station between two skyline ), and having all famous international brands, this is a right place for fashion conscious people.

This area is fun for cafés, inexpensive but pleasant and nice manicures and pedicures, massages, dessert, bargain shopping and fruity drinks and froyo. It's a little similar to otomesando in Tokyo. I really liked this low rise area with all its eateries and a certain charm in between the shopping malls which are just a block across anyway at Siam... More

Siam Square really has something for everyone. From the old stalwart of MBK, to the new Mega Mall of Siam Paragon. Plus all the little alley ways full of little local stalls. A shopaholics dream.

Siam Square, It's the place I don't forget to come here whenever I am in Bangkok. The business district is not only for shopping but there is a lot to see and do. A day isn't enough to explore all the area, so you have to come more than once..Well, I don't think I can cover it in this review,... More

With at least 3 - 4 big shopping malls (Thai prices and Western prices as well), the Siam Square area is great for the shopping experience, and also for the nighlife.
