Continued from Thailand – Laos: Day 8 – Part 6 – Siam Square One & Siam Paragon, Bangkok. For pre-travel, please refer here.
The location of Siam Center and Siam Discovery is actually next to Siam Paragon. Similar to Bukit Bintang in Kuala Lumpur which is called the golden triangle because it is a combination of several shopping malls in one area such as Sg. Wang Plaza, Lot 10, KL Plaza, Pavilion and Star Hill Gallery.
You can refer to the map above to see for yourself the position and distance between one shopping center and another. I suggest allocating 4 to 5 hours only for this area starting from Hello Kitty to Siam Discovery and ending at MBK Center.
Actually from Siam Paragon, we were often in the outdoor area especially at the fountain and also wanted to see three white statues with their tongues sticking out. Might be it represents father, mother and son. On the right side of the statue is the entrance to the Siam Center.
This is the fountain I was talking about. Do not be near it because you will be warned by the security guard there.
View of the Siam Paragon from the position of the fountain.
Frankly, I say that I am more interested in the interior of this Siam Center. You’ll see later, from ceilings to walls and shelves stacking clothes of various types of art and creative designs.
Siam Center is not as big as Siam Paragon. Although small, but there are also many items available here. The price is modest and not expensive like the Siam Paragon which is reserved for the elite to shop.
Look … the uniqueness of the light bulb that made me hang out here for a few minutes.
It’s like a zebra. Here, they optimize the edges with various types of exhibits for sale.
As far as I remember, this place only has 4 floors. For the upper floor, we didn’t visit there because it is more dedicated to restaurants and cafes.
The X -shaped escalator arrangement is similar to that at Sungai Wang Plaza in Kuala Lumpur. We hovered only on this floor.
The ground floor of Siam Center. It looks like visitors see info about Virtual Reality technology.
At this time, we started looking for a way out to the Siam Discovery shopping mall. That shop looks like a bird’s nest that seems to be upside down. Look at the floor, it varies between tile and wood.
We took pictures here because of the uniqueness of its ‘bird’s nest’.
This is produced by a company from South Korea. I’m not sure what’s being promoted. Probably related to the bird’s nest shop earlier.
Look at the ceiling, full of multimedia displays. Don’t look up above for a long time, you will hurt your neck.
It’s a bit difficult to find a security guard who is riding a Segway. Even in KLCC (Malaysia), no one still uses such facilities.
Between Siam Center and …………………..
………. Siam Discovery …. there is a bridge. If you are from Siam Paragon and want to go to this bridge, just continue to enter from the entrance of Siam Center where there is a fountain. Just need to remain walking on the same floor.
Indeed, the sights visible on the outside of the Siam Paragon leading up to Siam Discovery are just the Bangkok MRT tracks.
As soon as we entered the Siam Discovery, we saw a difference compared to the three shopping malls we passed earlier because there is a creative corner.
Take a look at the interior decoration here. Twice as great as the Siam Center.
If you keep walking forward, you can head to the exit.
Oh my God, I’m pretty excited about the ceiling decoration. To say that it’s in 3D, it’s not true. But it does look real. It is an arrangement of wooden boxes that are slightly protruding from the ceiling.
Look at the floor too.
Aqif is very interested in everything related to Minecraft and Roblox. When photographed, Aqif felt happy.
WOW … the perfume place. Dangling lights inside the glass jars. The floor was shining.
WOW, what else is this??? The handbag shelves are also beautiful. Ok, this shows that Siam Discovery has its own identity.
Our stomachs are hungry and the day is almost evening. It’s time to find MBK Center which is famous among Malaysians, especially the search for halal food.
