Siam Paragon

Siam Paragon is one of several enormous malls in Bangkok.  And I mean enormous! When you finish the short video, you might enjoy an older blog post, where I shared some aerial photos of Siam Paragon.  Kade and I had a view of the initial construction site when we were living in a high-rise condo shortly after we married in 2003.  For the previous post, click here.
Siam Paragon is an immensely popular shopping mall housing a host of international high-end fashion brands, Southeast Asia’s largest aquarium, a 16-screen Cineplex, and a comprehensive selection of world cuisine. Located prominently in front of Siam BTS Skytrain station - the interchange of the two BTS lines - it is considered by many to be the centre of Bangkok.

Considering the mall contains over 250 shops, the layout is logical and fairly compact, certainly when compared to the sprawling Central World mall nearby. However, this mall provides mainly luxury items for well-heeled Thais and international visitors with cash to splurge. If you are looking for something extra-special then Siam Paragon is definitely the place to find it.  - source
