We are adding a new spot in our itinerary the next time we visit Bangkok – the Iconsiam mall, which is the largest riverside mall in Thailand, at 525,000 square metres.
Located along the Chao Phraya river, Iconsiam will be home to Thailand’s first-ever Takashimaya outlet. This 54 billion baht (~S$2.28 billion) commercial complex will feature a variety of stores and attractions, including the first Apple Store in Thailand, an amusement park, the first Nike Kicks Lounge in Southeast Asia, a three-star Michelin restaurant, a huge heritage museum, and a 3000-seat auditorium. Singapore’s Jumbo seafood restaurant will also have a spot in this mega-mall.
The whole of the first floor of Iconsiam will be dedicated to products, services, and artistic creations from the 77 provinces in Thailand. You can also look forward to an indoor floating market and the longest fountain show (measuring more than 400 metres) in Southeast Asia.
Iconsiam is located at Soi Charoen 5 Khlong San, and the nearest BTS Station to it is Krung Thonbur. It will officially open on 9 November 2018.
