In the center of Bangkok, at the Siam Square, you can buy anything from a pair of sneakers to a Lamborghini – not kidding – these shopping centers really offers anything, and you can go here to spend your Bahts, no matter if you are a student or a millionaire.
At the Siam Square there are several different shopping centers, but two of them are something special:
The Siam Center is the trendy and cool center, that offers a lot of cool design, clothes and stuff for your home. The decor of the center is really modern, hipster-like and trendy. At the top floor you find a food court, where you put money on a plastic card, and then you can walk around, tasting all the great foods from all over asia. A super great place to get a cheap and great dinner. The shops in the center provides separate designs and decor, which provides a very creative and inspiring environment.
The Siam Paragon is the high street fashion shopping center, right across the Siam center has all the high street brands, clothes, expensive watches and jewelry, cars like Maserati, BMW and Lamborghini. In this shopping center you find anything you can imagine, and due to the import taxes on luxury goods in Thailand, the prices is the same as back in Denmark. In the Paragon you must take at break at the TWG tea-salon – where you can choose between hundreds of different teas, to drink together with all the cakes and tea-macarons. We had both some hot tea, and iced read, together with a selection of “calories”.
One of the best Macaroons ever
There are more opportunities with the Central World and the MBK, all within a short distance from the BTS Siam station, just like the Siam Center and Paragon. But in our opinion Siam Center is by far the best of them. Why – because it has a great atmosphere, some great decors and the food court on the top.
So go shopping at the Siam Square – we are sure that you will love this spot.
