This is one time when I wish I'm all by myself and have, at least, 1/2 day to shop around. Because we were going (rushing) to another location, we had a brief window shopping and was impressed by it (though not as big as Sim Lim Square, Singapore - back home country).
What to buy: Electronics stuff including cameras, computer accessories, etc.
Come here to shop, to souvenir hunt, to people watch.

Siam Square is a shopping and entertainment area in Bangkok, Thailand. Within Siam Square itself, there is a wide range of shops and services, including tutor schools, restaurants, cafe, designer clothing boutiques, record stores, bookshops, Hard Rock Cafe and banks.
Siam Square would like to be the Times Square of Bangkok, and it does a pretty good job. Despite the name this is in fact a warren of small sois filled with tiny shops and restaurants.
Unique pieces, cheap prices.
What to buy: Everything and anything.
What to pay: Depends on what you are buying. You can find designer bags (copies) for 2500 - 4000 Baht. Or buy the more unusual, which everyone wears there, for between 400 - 900 Baht.
This is hot top! GATEAU HOUSE is nothing less than a home-made bakery and got into the chain of leading Thai-owned bakeries. I think there must be about 50 Gateaux House shops and Siam Square was one of the first. They have the best-in-town sweetnesses, chocolate and bread and scrape, as we name a wonderful delicious toppings on a bun.
What to buy: So hard to point at one the most delicious sweets ... try the creampuffs filled with creamy pandan leaves custarded flavour. Looks green like the Hulk, but it is >>>
D E L I C I O U S ! ! !
Maybe a burnt cream Gateaux with chocolate, or cheese. And point at a bun that makes you lick your chops! Just try, there are miscellanies of pork meat, chicken, fish ...
What to pay: Not that much, about 20 - 40 THB for one protion or bun
If you want to know what the young and trendy are into fashion-wise, the Siam Square shops are the place to be! It's fun enough people-watching here, but the alley after alley of quaint little shops are quite inspiring and exhilarating to shoppers of hot, new fashions. Feel free to haggle - even on sale items! Haggling is part of the fun. Just be nice and smile while you're haggling. Shops are open from just before lunchtime to 8PM.
What to buy: Fun women's clothing and accessories - a mix of locally produced and imported goods. Young designers' clothing. Vintage clothing.
What to pay: You can find a lot of real bargains but there are also shops for Thai young designers that charge quite a bit more than other places selling local goods. However, you ARE paying for the creativity and the artistry of these young desigers so their prices are understandable.
Siam Square is a collection of small sois located just directly across from Siam Center. Most of these small shops sell clothes, handbags and other accessories for teenage girls and young ladies. There was nothing suitable that I could get for myself, so I patronised one of the many restaurants in the area. These restaurants serve a variety of food - Thai, Chinese, European, American etc. I tried the MK Restaurant located just in front of the Siam BTS station - they serve steamboat for a very reasonable price.
When I was there, there was some filming for a television talk show going on.
What to buy: Mainly fashion for young ladies.
What to pay: Prices are negotiable and reasonable. Be prepared to bargain.
This is the stop for almost all lady shoppers. A whole square of boutiques selling mainly (~75%) ladies' apparel and accessories (shoes, handbags, belts etc etc).
Throw your wife, girlfriend or mistress(es) here for a few hours and enjoy a few hours of peace & quiet guys.
This is not really a place for guys as the choices are pretty limited as guy apparel plays second fiddle here, almost to the point of being something extra that the ladies can pick up after they had satisfied their OWN shopping desires.
Note: There is a square within a square, in that this section is air-conned.
There are also eateries and bakeries here so no danger of shopping thirsty or hungry.
What to buy: Mainly lady apparel & accessories.
What to pay: Variable, depending on what you are buying. You may bargain.
Rows of small quaint cosy shops/boutiques selling street wear. Alot of local designer wear as well. Prices are not cheap, compared to markets, but you can get unique/funky pieces here. You can bargain, but discounts won't be a lot.
What to buy: Ladies and Men's Street Wear
This square is the cluster of sois (alleys) jammed with independent shops and stalls selling music, fashions, clothing, shoes, handbags and accessories.
