Siam Paragon

Siam Square, Pratunam, Phloen Chit & Ratchathewi

As much an air-conditioned urban park as it is a shopping centre, Siam Paragon is home to Sea Life Ocean World, Major Cineplex and Gourmet Paradise, a huge basement-level food court. Then there are stores and more stores, selling clothes, souvenirs, accessories, electronics, and even Rolls-Royce and McLaren cars! On the 3rd floor is Kinokuniya, Thailand's largest English-language bookshop.
