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.

This is a modern shopping centre just like those found in all major cities. It does have air conditioning which provides a welcome break from the humidity. We had a wander through but it is very busy and very expensive- London prices. We did enjoy ice cream at Haagen Dazs but it was 700 bhat for both of us!!

The owner of our hotel told us to check out this mall for something new to do since we've kinda done most of the big touristy stuff in Thailand. He said to check out the mall, but also all the surrounding streets, he told us that's where a lot of the trendy young locals like to shop. The inside part... More

A variety of shops inside and outside, and close to the BTS. A great place to cool off and get out of the sun in the shopping centre.

Better to visit there after sunset, as it will be hot at daytime. The food stall at this square is good, and price is not high; it is quite interesting that the siam shopping malls are very highend, but the food stalls can exist there! Funny combination!

This place is every girls's paradise! Great bargains on clothes. So many food options, and the siam paragon, mbk and other malls.. right there. What's not to like? The Siam metro station is right there.. If you're bored, you can just hop on to one and go somewhere else! I loved the vibe here.. speciallfy in the evenings! :)
