Siam Paragon

shopping / Shopping centre

Lonely Planet review

Paragon epitomises the city’s fanaticism for the new, the excessive and absurd slogans. In addition to the usual high-end brands, there’s a Lamborghini dealer on the 2nd floor should you need a ride home, and one floor up the True Urban Park ‘lifestyle centre’ featuring a cafe, internet access and a shop selling books, music and camera equipment.

Bookworms will fancy Kinokuniya (3rd floor), the largest English-language bookstore in Thailand, as well as an expansive branch of Asia Books (2nd floor). Even more audacious than the retail sections are the spectacular aquarium Siam Ocean World , an IMAX theatre and Gourmet Paradise , a seemingly never-ending basement level-food court. Whew.
