Grab your credit card before making your way to Siam Paragon, the third-largest mall in Thailand. Many people consider Siam Paragon to be at the city’s core, as it is directly in front of the BTS Skytrain stop Siam. This is where the two lines of the train come together as one. Siam Paragon emits luxury from the moment you step off the train, as its large, glass and steel entrance encases the mall’s name in gold font. After having entered one of the most luxurious malls in Bangkok, shoppers are immediately bombarded with designer brands, including Prada, Louis Vuitton, and Versace. Weave further into this mall and you will find Marc Jacobs, Burberry, Jimmy Choo, Chanel, and many more brand shops throughout.

2. Emporium

Class products, chic retail, and international luxury brands will have you exploring Emporium for an entire day. With six floors to cover, you will not know where to begin at this high-end mall. Emporium is directly connected to the BTS Skytrain stop Phrom Phong. Doormen with serious expressions and crisp uniforms greet shoppers as they enter. Shoppers are immediately engulfed in the luxury of it all, from music quietly playing throughout to it’s chic, white interior. Some of Emporium’s best designers brands include Armani Exchange, Dior, Cartier, and much more. Besides its impeccable shopping, Emporium is also home to some delicious eats, located on the fifth floor in the Emporium Food Hall.

3. Gaysorn
