Siam Square, Bangkok
Bangkok offers a lot of cinemas and movies. There is at least one movie out in a cinema each week. Where to go?
- Siam Square : there are a few cinemas such as Lido, Siam, and Scala. (Siam BTS Station)
- Siam Discovery Center (just across siam Square) : this is a mall and the movie floor is on the top.
- The Emporium : this is a mall as well and the movie floor is on the top. (Phrom Phong BTS Station)
The price is about the same at all places.

Siam Square is next door to Chulalongkorn University and is home to a number of language schools, so don't be surprised to see lots of students in this area. It's a semi-pedestrianised area with lots and lots of small shops, just over the road from the MBK and Siam Center shopping malls.
It's a bit hot in the daytime, but if you're looking for shops that are a little bit different to those in the malls, this could be the place to come. As well as lots of shops, there are cinemas and restaurants - including the Hard Rock Cafe on Soi 11.
It's all just south of the Siam (Central) Skytrain station, and if you want to stay here, there is a Novotel right on Siam Square Soi 6.
Bangkok is a huge city with many different areas which are not a walkable distance from one another. You can walk around the same area, but if you wanna move from one to another, you better take a tuktuk (don't pay more than 100 Bahts for any ride inside BKK), BTS or a taxi...
The main areas you will visit are:
- The Royal Palace and temples around it. By the riverside.
- Chinatown. Also by the riverside, but more southern.
- Siam Centre. The heart of the modern city. Shopping Malls.
- Sukhumvit. An area full of restaurants and medium accomodation.
- Khao San Road. The backpackers' Paradise!
Favorite thing: SIAM SQUARE is a very popular shopping area among Thai and foreign visitors. The area is centrally located and surrounded by hotels, shopping complexes, movie theatres, and it is the main junction of sky train
It depends what age group you belong to....there is something for everybody of any age group....Siam Square is the heart of Bangkok for the Young people it has numerous shopping complexes and multiplexes....100's of places to eat...from cafes to fast food to thai food...anything and everything...(don't miss MBK....its a dept. store).....Don't think of missing the Golden buddha temple , the reclining buddha temple and the old palace and yeah try to cover the floating markt. too and DEFINATELY try thai food
Fondest memory: The thing which miss from bangkok is the food....it is one the best kind of food i ever had (but anyways i put thai food 2nd after our own indian food)...for 2 months i nearly tried every kind of thai dish and i still had'nt tried it all....but mind you few iteams are really spicy...and yeah DON'T miss eating on the road side Food Stalls they are perfectly safe and clean (and Damn cheap)...one think more that you won't forget is the smiling and friendly thai people
