Siam Shopping

Where to Shop and What to Buy in Siam

The jewel in the crown of the city’s shopping centres – Siam Paragon – completes the strip of malls that begins at MBK and fringes the square, often referred to as ‘the battleground of the malls’. These are where Bangkok earns its stripes as an international fashion hub, with a profusion of leading designer flagship stores inside

Siam, like the city in which it is located, is an area of contrast. True to Bangkok’s unified configuration the area is a collaboration of internationally renowned high-end brands and independent traders where price scales go across the board.

Adjacent to the world-class malls is a dense warren of boutiques, Siam Square. Siam also holds the dubious honour of being the most expensive place to rent land in Bangkok. It is  what Bond Street is to London and Fifth Avenue to New York, while still possessing the innovative atmosphere of Camden Town or Soho, NYC.
