Bangkok’s appeal is rooted in its swinging rooftop clubs, lively gastronomy scene, and magnificent temples, but Thailand’s capital city is also a force to be reckoned with when it comes to shopping. In this bustling metropolis, high-end malls that boast upscale fashion houses keep company with bargain-basement markets, international brands fraternize with small-time vendors, and conspicuous consumers rub elbows with bargain shoppers. It is truly every shopper’s paradise.Siam
There's no better place to experience Bangkok's thriving retail culture than in Siam, often name-dropped by locals and guidebooks as the commercial heart of the city. Many of Thailand’s largest and best-known malls have laid foundations here. These include Central World and Siam Paragon, which together offer an eclectic shopping selection. Add to that roster the hip and trendy Siam Center and Siam Discovery malls, as well as the market-style, boutique-lined Siam Square, and this area is essentially the city’s one-stop shop. Expect your shopping excursion here to take an entire day—at least.
