I remember when this was all fields… (Siam Square/Mbk)

Wednesday, August 25th, 2010

What you din’t get: Siam square and MBK are situated in close proximity to the major Phaya Thai Road in Pathumwan district. This is one of the most developed area of Bangkok today. Thailand’s oldest University, Chulalongkorn University, owned the land Siam Square is situated on and in 1965 the college begun constuction in the area to gain rental income. The Siam Square you see today flourished because of its nearness to the school, and University students helped contribute to the popularity of the area,prodding a variey of investors to contribute to its developments. Similarly MBK opened in 1985 on a plot of land owned by Chulalongkorn University, and the mall continues to renew its lease on the land.

What you didn’t know: Antique maps from 70 years ago show the Siam Square and MBK area boasted vast lotus orchards and rice fields. We’re sure you’d rather have somewhere conveniently located to buy the lasten ipad than see sprawling meadows anyway.

What it could mean: The humble beginnings of Siam Square was to provide leasing profits to Chulalongkorn University, and the key factor of location has helped it develop into a unique area. MBK has stood firm because of its competitive edge in providing electronics, which suggests that these retail centers were lucky until Siam Paragon decided to plop down right across them.

Royal View Resort is located in Rangnam Road, So just 3 Station (Sky-Train) to The Siam Square and MBK. Guest who stay at Royal View Resort will enjoy to shopping at MBK and Siam Square.
