Siam Attractions

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.

Erawan Shrine

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 Read More...

Jim Thompson House

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 Read More...

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.

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)
