Iconsiam, Bangkok Overview

Bangkok is known for several spectacular shopping malls in addition to other attractions. However, the mega-development project of IconSiam located at the Thonburi end of River Chao Phraya stands apart from the others in multiple ways. It has many firsts, including the first Apple Store of the nation that has left the locals as well as International tourists completely awestruck. It is a city within a city that houses residential towers, retail shops as well as an amusement park that spell glitz and glamour like no other property in and around Thailand.

The project developers have collaborated with “The Fine Arts Department of the Ministry of Culture of Thailand” to showcase the spectacular local culture via the soon to be opened ‘Heritage Museum Bangkok.’  However, it is the unparalleled shopping experience that has left the visitors mesmerised, prompting them to term the place as the ‘mother of all malls’ in Bangkok. The 3000 seat conference hall plus auditorium, luxury cinema and the beautiful indoor floating market along with the riverside promenade and ten levels of glamorous offering that include 500 shops and more than 100 fine dining establishments have succeeded in putting  IconSiam firmly on the sightseeing map today.
