Siam Center - Enter the Ideaopolis



Siam Center is now open once more after a re-launching extravaganza was held in lavish style to celebrate the major facelift.  Taking five months to complete, at a cost of approximately 180 million baht, the renovations have completely transformed the shopping mall, turning it into one of Bangkok’s most modern and innovative.

New ideas and trends have been incorporated, such as smart interactive multimedia screens, backlit staircase panels, projection screens and LED screen ceilings.

A fresh moniker has even been created: The Ideaopolis.

Two hundred flagship stores are spread over the mall’s four floors, with each floor given its own theme: Fashion Avenue, Fashion Galleria, Fashion Visionary and Food Factory.

Many of Thailand’s leading fashion houses have opened outlets here now, including Theatre, Milin, Fly Now, Something Boudoir and Kloset.  Most stores are providing special product selections that are unique and only available at Siam Center, with this also extending to special menus in food and beverage outlets.
