The heart of Bangkok's downtown, Siam is an exciting shopping district and hosts the largest of the BTS skytrain stations. Shop at your familiar big-name chain stores at Siam Paragon and CentralWorld or dig deep to find one-of-a-kind items from local designer shops at Siam Square. Foodwise, Siam is lined with restaurants and street food stalls. Try an upscale dining experience while enjoying a panoramic view at one of Bangkok’s famed sky bars or join the locals and share a big Leo at a street food joint on Ratchadamri Road. Insider’s tip: There is one outstanding fried chicken stall outside CentralWorld that’s always packed with locals. Try walking along the street, and you will immediately know which one it is!
