The Ultimate Guide – Siam
Siam is located in the midst of Bangkok city and there are many things to do here. BTS Siam station is also the interchange station, so you can expect a huge volume of people travelling around here every day.
If you really want to explore every part of Siam, it can easily take up half a day!
To make your discovery of Siam area easier, we came up with “The Ultimate Guide to Siam” where it is segregated by Food, Shopping, Spa and Stay!
In Bangkok, you will never starve because you can find food everywhere. To make your life easier, I will tell you which are the ones that have delicious food! Check out Som Tam Nua for good Isaan dishes and Ban Khun Mae and Inter Restaurant for general Thai dishes.
If you are looking for something which the locals frequent daily, head over to Rod Dee Dej for beef noodles or the food alley just behind Novotel Siam Square.

If you’re still feeling peckish after the meal, you will be glad to know that there are many desserts that you can get around Siam Square. These are my favourites which I will get whenever I’m at Siam Square.
If you like traditional Thai Bread, go to MBK and look for Mont Nom Sod!
For shopping malls alone, you have Siam Paragon, Siam Center, MBK, Siam Square One and the newly revamped Siam Discovery!

If you are willing to bear the heat and get some cheaper buys, they are actually scattered around Siam Square. You just have to walk around in order to find them.
Along Siam Square Soi 6 are 3 popular massage parlours to get your foot or body massage done. Lek Massage is the most popular among all and you might have to wait for your turn.
All of them are equally good but like I always say, the quality of the massage really depends on your masseuse.
- Chang Foot Massage
- Lek Massage
- Issey Massage
