Thailand just got its first ever Premium Outlets, thanks to a remarkable joint venture between Siam Piwat and Simon Property Group.
While travel restrictions are yet to loosen, crowds of people head in the direction of Suvarnabhumi Airport for something even better than a getaway: Siam Premium Outlets Bangkok. Just 15 minutes away from the airport — easily accessible from Bangkok-Chonburi Motorway No.7 route, m. 23, exit 5, Lat Krabang — the center is already becoming one of Thailand’s ultimate shopping destinations, attracting affluent shoppers with a keen love for designer brands. It’s also the brainchild of Siam Piwat Simon — a collaboration between retail development mogul Siam Piwat, and global real estate company and shopping mall operator Simon Property Group.
With over 200 luxury brands from all across the globe —about 60 of which are exclusively available at the center — along with an array of great food and beverage options, this is the latest spot to be if you’re looking to while the day away treating yourself. We personally paid a visit, and here are the key reasons why it’s definitely worth the trip.
Naturally, one of the top reasons you’d go is for the shopping, and on this front Siam Premium Outlets Bangkok does not disappoint. Expect a remarkable array of highly sought-after brands, ranging from international and local fashion, to sportswear, kids items, home decor, and even technology.
We’re particularly excited for the labels that will be debuting their first outlet concepts to exist in Thailand — namely Burberry, Balenciaga, Bally, Breitling, CK, Furla, Hugo Boss, Montblanc and more. They’re joined, of course, by an equally impressive family of brands, including the likes of Salvatore Ferragamo, Phillip Lim, Alexander Wang and more. Shoppers will also find the country’s largest Coach, kate spade NEW YORK, and Sketchers outlets.
Keep your eyes peeled too for the sportswear options — the Nike store is impressively spacious, with digital member exclusives and stunning murals designed by local artists while adidas will be carrying exclusive women’s training lines and a corner especially dedicated to kids’ merchandise.
There’s a great outdoor environment.
Bangkok has been leaning towards airy outdoor areas as of late, and Siam Premium Outlets really shines in this respect, offering well-curated amenities and design features that really contribute to a great shopping experience. A vast, green outdoor landscape dominates the central area, while unique water fountain features give the space a rather tranquil atmosphere, despite the hustle-bustle of shoppers moving to and fro.
There’s even a children’s playground so your kids can stay entertained, and a laid-back amphitheatre. If you take a closer look, you’ll notice that the entire area is dominated by striking works of art, drawing inspiration from the local craftsmanship and culture.
Large art sculptures loom overhead, and you’ll find some pieces especially designed by revered local artists — for instance, you’ve got unique nature-inspired art by Korakot Aromdee, and there are also several Thai floral-inspired sculptures created by Pin-Saruta Kiatparkpoom, using recycled metals.
It makes for a perfect day-trip.
Perhaps what’s great about Siam Premium Outlets is how it’s designed for you to spend the whole day there, and truly enjoy yourself. Start your morning with a cup of coffee at Starbucks, and while away the earlier part of the day browsing the shining storefronts. If all the shopping has made you hungry, stop for lunch at one of the enticing choices available — including the likes of Ajisan, Hong Kong Noodle, Olino Crepe & Tea, S&P, and more. There’s even a food hall concept by Food Republic, if you’re looking for more dishes.
If you’re looking to catch up under the summer sun, or relax as the evening settles, why not opt for chic outdoor lounging areas scattered across the center. The cool breeze and buzzing vibe guarantees you a great end to your day.
