Siam is very famous for shopping. There are many shopping malls in this area; Siam Paragon, Siam Discovery, Siam Center, Siam Square One, Central World and MBK Center are all located in very close proximity to each other. With all these malls, you can start to feel overwhelmed with shopping, and you might want to give it a break. Luckily there are some hidden gems tucked away around Siam.
