Not your ordinary Bangkok mall!
In the bustling city of Bangkok, apart from the amazing food, it’s known for its many shopping malls and complexes. However, it truly takes a special one to steal the spotlight. The recently opened IconSiam certainly seems to be ticking all the boxes.
A mega project of many ‘firsts’ and ‘bests’, you can find truly outstanding and exciting things under its roof. More than just a mall, we think it might just be Bangkok’s new must-visit attraction!
