The heart of the city is a mecca of commercialism. Surrounded by huge malls and alleyways of tiny boutiques and markets, Siam is a favorite of Bangkok’s fashion conscious youth.

Siam Square is quite a large area, full of shops, boutiques, shopping malls (of course!), restaurants and bars for every taste. Some of the most expensive hotels in Bangkok are located here too. The most glittering malls dominate the scenery - Siam Paragon, Siam Centre and Siam Discovery. One can find good bargains for good quality apparel - world famous... More

There is not much here worth seeing. Small square with a few large screens, sometimes very loud music, plus access to BTS

Siam Square was a very interesting shopping area consisting of hundreds of small shops in narrow alleyways that criss crossed the area. Now it is to be avoided. Siam Square is located at the Siam station of the BTS skytrain. It is located opposite Siam Paragon Mall. The Novotel is at one end and MBK mall is at the far... More

Usual shops that you find in any medium sized mall. Food court is good, with quite a wide variety of food stalls. Most stores are the branded expensive ones so only go if you're looking for that.

Siam Square, the pioneer of the shopping structures around the area. In the past, the area was dominated by three giant movie theaters, the Siam, the Lido, and the Scalar.

Whilst terminal 21 was the nearest shopping mall for where I was staying, made the trip here to grab some bargains as American Eagle. Remember your passport so that you can claim the VAT back.

If you your brand conscious then siam paragon and siam center is right place for you. All expensive brands available here. I personally liked food courts which is having all varieties of food chains.
