Think, luxurious shopping. Think, imaginative and unique experience. Now think: One Siam.
When Siam Paragon opened its doors for the first time, it created a revolution for the way we perceived shopping destinations. It wowed us in so many unforgettable ways because we found a new destination that completely reshaped Bangkok’s modern shopping experience. In no time, Siam Center and Siam Discovery emerged like two peas in a pod, to further enhance the experience. The three powerhouses combing to be OneSiam, had something that no one had thought of — the unique cultural experiences that made you forget the outside world.
Whilst Siam Paragon houses all the world-class international brands, Siam Center boasts a bundle of Thai talents with their fashionable wears and creative collections. Jumping over to Siam Discovery, this has managed to break all the rules of conventional shopping centres in Thailand with experimental “labs” to shop and explore. The three extravagant malls are connected in a triangle, allowing visitors to grasp the most of experiences at this beloved district. Scroll down to find out how you could embark on a journey at OneSiam and tick off that bucket list with all of the one-of-a-kind experiences you’ve been looking for in Bangkok.
