It was named Bangkok’s best som tam restaurant by CNN Travel. That was good enough reason for me to visit. Of course I had the healthy and low-cost somtam with dried shrimp and peanuts. Papaya salad – or som tam – is a mainstay of...More

Great place for chicken wings and beers. For pork lovers order the grilled pork neck its the best dish there, they even have a pork bone tom yum soup. The honey lemon taste awful, so just order a bottled drinks just to be safe.

Foods are just fine, staff with bad manner. If you want to try local Thai food, here is definitely not your first choice. Street food are way much better.

Take some of Asia’s biggest malls, hundreds of
street-side vendors and a dozen of posh hotels and
you’ll have Siam - Bangkok’s commercial district that
will make any shopper’s heart beat faster. From cheap
electronics and wholesale goods in MBK to designer
handbags in Siam Paragon, you’re almost guaranteed to
find what you’re looking for in one of Siam’s many
malls. Take a break from the commercial craze and
