Bangkok city guide

Bangkok - Siam Square, Pratunam, Ploenchit & Ratchathewi (Chapter)

10th Edition Sep 2012

This is the Siam Square, Pratunam, Ploenchit & Ratchathewi chapter from Lonely Planet's Bangkok guidebook.

Multi-storey malls, shopping precincts and never-ending markets leave no doubt that Siam Square, Pratunam and Ploenchit combine to form Bangkok's commercial district. Siam is the centre of modern Bangkok, while a few blocks away, scruffy Ratchathewi has more in common with provincial Thai cities.

  • Visi Jim Thomp¬son’s House - the teak mansion that put Thai style on the map…before its ex-spy owner disappeared off that map.
  • maps
  • Shop at the malls, department stores and shops around Siam Square, such as MBK Center
  • transport
  • Exploring Baan Krua, the canal-side Muslim village where Jim Thompson first encountered Thai silk.
  • restaurants & bars

Coverage includes: Neighbourhood Top Five, Local Life, Getting There & Away, Sights, Eating, Drinking & Nightlife, Entertainment, Shopping, Sleeping and Sports & Activities.
