    What to See in Siam

    With trendy boutiques and major shopping malls in the area, Siam is a playground where local teenagers meet, hang out and shop.

    Cinemas, bowling alleys & karaoke booths are ubiquitous in this area and a great way to unwind after a bout of intense shopping. Not far from MBK, and definitely worth a visit, is the Jim Thompson House. Found down a small 'soi' (alley) near the BTS National Stadium station, it comprises a number of antique Thai teakwood houses set in lush gardens, each beautifully restored by Jim Thompsom, a man largely credited for making Thai silk so famous.

    For something both aquatic and educational, check out Siam Ocean World in Siam Paragon, Bangkok's only aquarium. If you'd like a moment of peace before continuing your shopping spree, visit Pathum Wanaram Temple right next to Siam Paragon. But, it is shopping - or window shopping - that wins hands down as everyone's favorite activity in this area. 

All Attractions in Siam

The Bangkok Art and Cultural Centre (BACC) is the first of its kind in the city, a place where the visitors can interact with a range of creative mediums on a number of levels; be it a play, a work of art or an enjoyable film.

Best described as the pulse of Bangkok’s art scene, the BACC integrates both contemporary and traditional art pieces that seek to reaffirm and push the boundaries of Thailand’s creative and cultural existence. Collaboration between motion and the motionless brings together a range of media from film, photography, theatre, sculpture and fine art.  Read More...

Erawan Shrine in Bangkok is Brahman, not strictly Buddhist. And yet, this famous shrine attracts more visitors than many of the city's temples. It was erected during the mid 1950s, after the Thai government had decided to build the luxury Erawan Hotel on this location. However, the first stages of the construction were beset with so many problems that superstitious labourers refused to continue unless the land spirits were appeased. Read More...

The Human Body Museum in Siam Square is a weird and amazing exhibition of 14 dissected human bodies from Japan. Some might think this is a really creepy idea but there is always a small audience who quite like to be freaked out by morbid things whilst on holiday. In some ways it is a little disturbing. But as this display is located inside the Faculty of Dentistry building at the medical university of Chulalongkorn, it also makes sense as an educational exhibit. Unlike the old dusty and rather sinister forensic museum in Thonburi, the human body exhibition is brand new and as sterile as an operating theatre. The feeling inside the white and minimalist rooms is more of a technical curiosity and the photos on this page are more troubling than the reality. We even saw several families taking their kids there... Read More...

  • How to get there: The university is very large so it's easy to get lost. Maybe the best way is to come from the back of Siam Square and enter next to the large and easy to spot book shop.

The lovely garden-enclosed compound sitting on the bank of the Saen Saeb Canal would have gone completely unnoticed, had it not been for a legacy left behind by a middle-aged American man named Jim Thompson. His elegant residential enclave, comprising six traditional Thai teakwood houses transported from Ayutthaya and Bangkok’s Ban Krua community, echoes Jim Thompson’s 30-year love affair with Southeast Asian art and cultural heritage.

Kidzania is the very latest and, without a doubt, most innovative addition to the 'edutainment' scene in Bangkok. This is unlike anything we have seen before and the level of fun has been raised to a brand new level. Kidzania, originally a Mexican company, has been opening family entertainment centers since 1999 in Santa Fe, then in 11 additional locations around the world; Bangkok being the latest one.

Pathum Wanaram Temple

At the time of founding this area was accessible only by khlong (canal) and was still surrounded by rice fields. Built by King Mongkut in 1857 it was the nearest place of worship to his Sa Pathum Palace. Take a look at the carvings on the crematorium that demonstrate rare examples of ancient craftsmanship featuring ornate stencils and lacquered sculptures. Pathum Wanaram is the perfect escape for some cultural refreshment.

Two storeys underneath the glitzy Siam Paragon shopping mall, an aquatic wonderland the size of three Olympic swimming pools awaits your discovery at the Siam Ocean World.

  • How to get there: Take Exit 5 from the BTS Siam Station, which provides direct access to Siam Paragon.

The Rink Ice Skating

Unlike most other preexisting ice-skating rinks, which are housed inside an enclosed space usually on the top floor of a shopping mall, The Rink sits in an open atrium on the first floor of CentralWorld shopping complex. The space occupies what used to be the exhibition area, surrounded by brand name clothing shops and B2S retail store. While you might need to use a lot of imagination to get the feel of a real outdoor rink, think New York’s Rockefeller Center or London’s Somerset House, The Rink is a delightful alternative to the otherwise nondescript rinks elsewhere.

  • Opening Hours: 10:00 – 22:00
  • Location: CentralWorld (Forum zone)
