A Maiden Trip to the Siam District in Bangkok
Places to Visit
While Siam may have been how one identified Thailand in former years, today, Siam is the name given to Bangkok’s shopping capital/district, situated in the heart of the city. Housing major shopping malls, aquariums and restaurants, Siam is booming with tourism.
Shop to Your Heart’s Content
The Mahboonkrog, popularly known as the MBK Centre is one of Bangkok’s largest shopping malls, with 8 floors of shops and restaurants that are constantly occupied by wandering locals and tourists from Siam and Sukhumvit hotels in Bangkok, making up for a city of its own. Swarming with people from all across the world, it is located in the Pathumwan District, only 11 minutes away from properties such as Anantara Siam Bangkok Hotel. Shop till you drop at the many boutiques, eat at a food court of over 40 stalls and catch a movie with your family to mark a memorable trip to Siam, Bangkok.
The Fashionable Siam Square
Another notable shopping and entertainment point in Bangkok is Siam Square. Located in the Siam district, you will discover many local boutique shops of cutting-edge fashion, restaurants that offer authentic food as well as small cafes for small talks during recess. Siam Square is comparatively a less costly option for shopping in Bangkok for tourists.
The New Face of Siam Centre
One of Bangkok’s first shopping malls, the Siam Centre has made its comeback following a major renovation in 2013, rebranded as Siam Centre The Ideapolis. Located in the heart of Siam, this shopping centre boasts a wide range of high-end, international branded shops that offer the best quality products, with restaurants on the top floor to complement your visit.
An Aquatic Experience
The Sea Life Bangkok Ocean World is the largest aquarium in Southeast Asia. This hosts a wide spectrum of marine life and spreads across 10,000 square meters. While your primary aim would be to explore the hundreds of marine species, the visit would also be proven educational to those who seek an insight into their world.
