Be Seduced with Style at Siam Square
Lying right in the heart of Bangkok, Siam Square is a total contrast to the rest of this bewildering city. Packed full of glitzy shops, malls and restaurants, Siam Square is the essence of everything that’s hip and cool about Bangkok, a place where people can come to express themselves, and where the latest new fashion styles are both introduced and shaped.
Siam Square is also the most expensive piece of real estate in the city. Siam Square is to Bangkok what Fifth Avenue is to New York, or Bond Street is to London, yet it also possesses the kind of innovative vibe that you’ll find in Soho or Camden Town.
If you want to mix it with the rich and cool in Bangkok, Siam Square is the only place to be. Popular with university students and Thai movie stars alike, this is the favorite location in the city to hang out and be seen, being home to a warren of chic cafes, restaurants, cinemas and designer boutiques.
Siam Square is also a place for sightseeing. It’s located next to some of the biggest tourist attractions in Bangkok, such as the legendary Jim Thompson House, and the Erawan Shrine, a Brahman temple that is actually more popular with tourists than most Buddhist temples.
Apart from the sightseeing and the hanging out, there’s only one other thing to do in Siam Square, and that’s shop till you drop.
Packed with street vendors selling colorful T-shirts, jeans, jewelry and just about every other fashion accessory you could need, next to boutique and designers stores offering the finest quality tailor made suits and designer brands, Siam Square is a fashionistas dream come true.
Whether its bargain hunting you’re after, or you want to add yet another brand name to your extensive collection of perfumes, you’ll find it in abundance at Siam Square.
Capping it all is the jewel in the crown of Bangkok’s shopping malls – the one and only Siam Paragon, the biggest and most glamorous mall in all of Southeast Asia.
Going there? You can hire a car and driver in Bangkok to take you there and go where ever you like for the ultimate in flexibility and comfort.
