When you are travelling to Bangkok, you might be wondering where is the best place to stay? We suggest staying around the Siam area as it is so much to do. You could spend a whole week here and still not see all of it. The area is a shopping mecca, a paradise for food lovers and a great destination for families.
Let’s first start with shopping. You can get everything from luxury brands, wholesale clothing and food and cosmetic souvenirs. The area is home to major malls like Siam Paragon, Siam Discovery and Siam Center. If you venture out a little further by foot, and we’re talking less than 10 minutes, you will reach MBK and Central World. Less than a 20 minute walk away is Central Chitlom, Big C Supercenter, The Market and Platinum Shopping Mall. Let’s not forget Siam Square, home to local fashion brands all the cool locals are wearing.
Siam is a great place for families with kids. Right next to Novotel Bangkok on Siam Square is LINE Village, an Adventure Park based off of the popular instant messaging application. It’s a super cute world with VR rides and lots of picture-taking opportunities.
Located on the basement level of Siam Paragon is the largest aquarium in South East Asia – SEA LIFE Ocean World. Sharks, penguins and touch pools await your viewing and touching.
Also located in Siam Paragon on the 5th floor is Kidzania. Kidzania is the ultimate learning and role-play experience for children. Kids aged 4-14 get to try out different jobs in this mini-city environment and they can earn compensation too for toys and games. It is a great educational and fun experience.
