Shopping mall in Bangkok, Thailand
Get ahold of the latest fashion trends – Siam Square One
This shopping complex is one of the favourite haunts of local Thai youth, and for good reason too.
When you’re done at Siam Square One (the shopping mall) and come out to the Siam Square area… You’ll find that this shopping area features streets full of little boutiques that showcase the trendiest Thai and Asian brands.
If you’re interested in knowing (and of course, owning) the hottest styles in Bangkok, don’t forget to include this place in your itinerary!
What to conquer here:
Siam Square is filled with various stores that each have their unique charm. From rocker-chic leather and studs at Pony Stone, to soft, pastel vintage – you won’t have to worry about this place not meeting your stylish needs (or demands heh).
The different sois (lanes) within the square feature different types of products. Soi 2 has a majority of accessories.

When you get a little too tired, head on to Soi 6, wherein lies the acclaimed massage parlour Chang Foot Massage.

If you’re the artsy fartsy type (we’re not judging), you’ll definitely enjoy Good Little Space (in Soi 6), which is indeed a good little space in Siam Square. It celebrates creativity and entrepreneurship by renting out spaces to young Thais with big ideas.
Here, you can find interesting fashion, bags, accessories, and also enjoy live music by budding local bands.
What do you do after buying a bunch of flowy vintage clothing at Siam Square?
Of course… you put them on and enjoy a movie at a vintage theatre. Scala Cinema was built in 1967, and everything here seems as if it has stopped in time. Tickets are an unbelievable price of 100 Baht each (!!!), and the theatre retains its retro identity down to a T – even the tickets look as if they were printed some 50 years ago.

Since you’re in Bangkok, of course you’ll also have to visit one of its awesome themed cafes – Hello Kitty House, the home of our favourite mouthless British
cat (we mean, schoolgirl), a mere two minutes away from Siam Square.

Challenge your humanity by biting into a cake the shape of Hello Kitty’s face and blind yourself with all the pink. We’re sure it will be a happy death.
If you’re feeling a little too stuffed from all the cafes and want to puke some out, we recommend the Human Body Museum. Just kidding – while the display of 14 dissected dead bodies isn’t really a sight that everyone can accept, this educational exhibit is actually family-friendly and educates you about how the human body works!
