SIAM PARAGON, BANGKOK

The Siam Paragon is listed as the 32nd largest malls in the world. We maneuvered our way from MBK throught Siam discovery and finally, found our way to Siam Paragon! (Our SM North EDSA ranks no. 3 and SM Mall of Asia ranks No. 10)



From Wikipedia:
Siam Paragon (Thaiสยามพารากอน) is a shopping mall in BangkokThailand. It is one of the biggest shopping centers in Asia. Opened on December 9, 2005, it includes a wide range of specialty stores and restaurants as well as a multiplex movie theater (consisted of 15 large size theaters with one of them having the biggest screen and seating capacity in Asia) and the Siam Ocean World (Underwater world) aquarium (the largest aquarium in South East Asia) and an exhibition hall and the Thai Art Gallery and also an opera concert hall. It also has a large bowling alley and karaoke center. 

Siam Paragon has become since its opening the place to be for Thailand's upper class, tourists, and locals who come to be seen and to see what Thailand has to offer. However, despite its reputation for showcasing one or two cars over $300,000 each, and some pushing a million dollars, its crosstown rival Gaysorn has remained the most popular spot for rich foreigners, especially from the Middle East. Paragon remains among the most popular shopping ground for the small number of Thai elite (and the vast number of elite pretenders), without excluding everyday commonplace and popular Thai items.

Siam Paragon is on Rama I Road in Pathum Wan district, and is adjacent to other shopping areas. It is next door to Siam Center and Siam Discovery Center and opposite Siam SquareMBK Center is also nearby. An elevated walkway beneath the BTS Skytrain tracks links Siam Paragon to the Ratchaprasong intersection, where CentralWorldGaysorn and several other shopping malls and hotels are located.


Just want to share how it looks in some areas!
The fountains as we enter.



Inside the Siam Paragon. Not necessarily the Deparment Store.


at the food court.. notice Mac Donald!


We did not eat at the Ground Floor where the foodcourt is. We moved to the Fourth Floor to look for a restaurant. Our friend wanted to try an authentic restaurant other than the street food!
Fai Sor Kam... will have a separate blog on this!







I enjoyed the fourth floor!

As we left Siam Paragon... to where we would find our ride home!










Nice place!

  2. Wow! Nice photos. I love the place, so gorgeous. It has a touch of their culture which is I think what's lacking in our establishments here ;)
