Siam Paragon – Bangkok’s second largest shopping and leisure mall is a must see when visiting the beautiful city.
Fendi, Dolce and Gabbana, Hermes; but also Greyhound, BeTrend and Zara – Siam Paragon is not just a shopping center; it is a shopper’s paradise. Besides shopping, Siam Paragon offers ambiance, architecture and leisure. This place is not only for shopaholics, but for all. If you are looking for recreation, there are bowling alleys, theaters, an opera concert hall and karaoke. If you are looking for some fun and education, there is the Siam Ocean World. No matter where your interests lie, Siam Paragon has it all.
The basement floor of Siam Paragon houses the biggest aquarium in Asia. It is a two-story aquarium divided into 7 zones, allowing visitors to completely indulge themselves not only with recreation, but also with fun education. You can wander around staring at more than 30,000 species of underwater creatures, take part in fish foot clean-ups and, everyday from 1-3pm, watch the live shark feeding show. There is just so much to do here!
Go up to the 7th floor and you will find the place bustling with teenagers in groups heading for a movie in the 17 screens theater priced at just 5 euros per movie. Either that or you would see them laughing and enjoying themselves at the world-class bowling alley. Blue-O is loaded with mod-cons, surround sound music, full rental facilities, food and drinks. Did I mention that it is cheap?
With over 200 International and Thai brands, Siam Paragon could quite easily be compared to a national monument. It has approximately 200,000 visitors a day and covers an impressive area of 4.1 million square feet (410k square meters).
So, next time you head to Bangkok – yes, you have to check out the floating market and the Buddha Temples, but you also need to immerse yourself in some leisure therapy at Siam Paragon.
