“Siam Discovery is nowhere near as glitzy as Siam Paragon or the newly relaunched Siam Center next to it, but it is an easy to navigate straightforward downtown shopping mall without any of the gimmicks and many like its unpretentious atmosphere. There are plenty of high end fashion and designer choices here, families come here to pick up their favorite brands. The first three floors of the mall have clothing and fashion shops galore, while the upper two floors contain home design and decor, along with anything that doesn't fit on the first three floors. Also included in the Siam Discovery Mall is a Madame Tussaud's Wax Museum and an Ice Planet Skating Rink, so the whole family can have fun while hitting the clothing stores at the same time. There are also a plethora of eating options upstairs here, with an international food court featuring Japanese, Thai, steakhouses, and plenty of others. It's easy to pass several hours here.”

Theatre
“Packing all the splendour of the Land of Smiles into an 80-minute stage show is no easy task. But Siam Niramit succeeds – and spectacularly. How so? Try the world’s biggest stage, a cast of hundreds, and bags of Thai finesse. The first act describes how Siam became a crossroads where civilisations met, the second how karma binds the Thai people, the last how religious ceremony earns Thais merit in this life.”
