Apple has finally broken its silence about its launch in Thailand, confirming today that the first Apple Store in the country will — as reported here earlier this month — be inside Bangkok’s new IconSiam mall, which is scheduled to open on Nov. 10.
That branch was officially listed on the Apple Website for the first time today. Obviously, the store will feature a unique gold logo, which Thai netizens believe resembles the letter “aor ang” (the letter used to spell “apple” in Thai).
Meanwhile, tech bloggers such as Chatpawee Trichachawanwong and “Au Spin9” have shared their snaps of the Thai Apple Store from the outside today. Chatpawee reported that Apple had taken down the construction partition as of early this morning, unveiling a brown wall (an unusual color for an Apple Store) and a giant Thai-inspired logo.
IconSiam is located on the banks of the Chao Phraya river on Charoen Nakhon Road. It’s set to become Thailand’s largest mall when it opens.
