While in Asia I travelled to Bangkok and took the opportunity to visit the many malls and stores that this city has to offer. Siam Discovery was top of my list and offered the most pleasant and leisurely shopping experience of any of the major malls in Bangkok.
With its sophisticated concept on how it presents merchandise, it is an experience like nowhere else in Thailand’s shopping-mad capital.
The Ground Floor has its chic boutiques and anchor stores from Issey Miyake, Diesel and Comme des Garcons but as you head to higher floors, you will notice a distinct lack of shops. Instead, merchandise is laid out naturally, as you would expect to see in someone’s home. This is a trend which has been popular in Japan and Korea for several years.
Each floor (called a “Lab”) is given to a general theme and a particular interior décor which make Siam Discovery a sort of retail exploration.On the 3rdFloor, they have kept the large Loft and Habitat Anchor Stores, as well as adding some interesting fashion, jewellery and homeware concept stores.
If you are passing through Bangkok, then Siam Discovery is definitely well worth a visit!
