Siam, is one of the most famous and busy areas in all of Bangkok. It’s the place to go if you’re looking shop until you drop and get the latest in anything you need. I’ve stayed at Lub d Siam Square a number of times, and I’d definitely say that it’s one of the best hostels in Bangkok, in an absolute prime location. I made this video for Lub d Siam Square, but all the information in the video and all everything is my own personal opinion. To begin this video I start at Lub d hostel where I exit and then take a walk across the street to MBK. MBK is a massive shopping center where you can find everything from souvenirs to clothes and electronics. The center is extremely famous for the entire floor of cell phones, both new and used. I didn’t actually pick up a new cell phone, but if I really did need one, MBK would be a great place to get one. At MBK, in Siam Bangkok, you’ll also find a huge food court with over 40 stalls serving mostly Thai food but also Vietnamese and Indian food.

After MBK, I headed over to Siam Square, which is just across the street from MBK, and opposite Siam Paragon shopping center. Siam Square is a trendy little district of Siam where you’ll find all sorts of local Bangkok designer clothes and trinkets. Another highlight of coming to Siam Square is the restaurants. Being quite hungry, I headed over to Som Tam Nua, a popular Bangkok restaurant serving Isan northeastern Thai food. The restaurant is nearly always busy and sometimes, especially if you go on a weekend you’ll have to wait your turn. Anyway, if you’re looking for good Thai food in Siam Square, head to Som Tam Nua. Siam Paragon and Siam Center are both just across the road and they are each mega shopping centers where you’ll find lots of high end designer stores and plenty of restaurants. There’s also a Bangkok luxury movie theater including a 4D cinema.

Something I really like about Siam Bangkok is that you’ll find quiet areas of the city within busy areas. Slotted in between Paragon and Central World is the Wat Pathum Wanaram, a Siam temple. You can go inside, walk around, and take some photos. It’s just amazing that you’re still in Siam when you’re at the temple. About a 10 minute walk from Siam Square is the Erawan Shrine, a lively Hindu dedicated shrine. This shrine with a lot of history is a popular place for both tourists and Thais to come and seek good luck. You’ll also be able to see a Thai dance performance at the Erawan Shrine. Central World is just across the street, and just like the other Siam Bangkok shopping malls, you’ll find high end shops and restaurants. Outside of Central World is Trimurti Shrine, another popular shrine dedicated to finding love – can you see the roses!?

Moving on to Pratunam, which is about a 15 minute walk from Lub d Siam Square is Platinum fashion mall. This huge structure is clothing market complex indoors. It’s huge and confusing, but if you’re looking for Bangkok fashion, this is the place for you. Very close you’ll also find Pantip Plaza, your one stop mall for all things electronic. Before heading back to Lub d Siam Square, I then stop by the Bangkok Art and Culture Center, which normally offers free exhibits, to see some of the latest art.
