Neither as new nor as famous Siam Paragon or Siam Discovery Center, Siam Center is a scaled-down four-story mall that continues to serve Bangkok’s young and restless shoppers.  Despite being located the midst of Bangkok’s more famous mall giants, Siam Center has reinvented itself as THE PLACE to shop for Bangkok’s fashionable youth.

Opening in 1973 as one of Bangkok’s first malls, Siam Center has transformed itself throughout the years to stay relevant in a city that has become a shopping mecca. In its latest stage, Siam Center has become a teenage retail hub. Of course, being located in Siam Square, with a fourth floor sky bridge that connects Siam Center to Siam Discovery Center, always helps business.

A Teenage Retail Hub

Playing heavily to its target audience, the mall blares dance music, and caters a disproportionate amount of surf shops, coffee shops, and lifestyle brands. Free internet at the cafe on the first floor, and great food deals at the “F” food court draw in fashionable young loiterers. Global retailers like Adidas, Rip Curl, Billabong, Swatch, The Body Shop, and Lacoste, surround boutique shops, coffee shops and hair and cosmetic salons.

Cheaper Than Most

Siam Center is known to be cheaper than Siam Paragon, and is considered to have better deals than Siam Discovery Center. While its selection is limited, and its demographic is specific, the mall offers some of the best apparel deals in the city.

Boutique Shops, Up-And-Coming Designers

Many of Siam Center’s boutique stores, and local brands are located on the third floor. Loud, graphically-heavy window displays dominate the scene on the third floor. Jewelry, handbags, and other accessories by up-and-coming designers can be found for great bargains. Sizes tend be, well, small.
