Bangkok newly open, Siam Paragon-the pride of bangkok.
It's 500,000 square meter large (5.3 mil. sq.feet), situated right in bangkok most crowded area.






SIAMPARAGON
BANGKOK

Starry-eyed welcome for Paragon
Complex will boost tourists' spending

SUKANYA JITPLEECHEEP & SUJINTANA HEMTASILPA
http://www.bangkokpost.com/101205_B...c2005_biz37.php

Bangkok's business and social elite turned out in force yesterday to the launch of the 15-billion-baht Siam Paragon, the country's newest shopping mall.

Building began at the 52-rai plot in 2003, and the complex now features an opera house, an aquarium, cinemas and bowling lanes, as well as 250 retail boutiques featuring brands such as Hermes, Gucci and Chanel.

Several newcomers have also made their debut in the Thai market at Siam Paragon, including jewellers Van Cleef & Arpels and Mikimoto, and fashion brands such as Spain's Zara and Italy's Roberto Cavalli.

Siam Paragon boasts 500,000 square metres of space and is located in the heart of the city, flanked by the Siam Centre and CentralWorld malls.

The project was the brainchild of Supaluck Umpujh, aged 50, and Chadatip Chutrakul, 44, two female giants in the Thai retail industry.

Ms Supaluck, the vice-chairwoman of Siam Paragon, was the project innovator, while Mrs Chadatip, the chief executive, managed the project, keeping costs and schedules on target.

They say it was a perfect partnership to see through the challenge of a lifetime.

''I was taught by my father that to solve a problem, you have to experience it yourself,'' Mrs Chadatip said.

To prove this, her father, Gen Chalermchai Jaruwat, a former governor of the Tourism Authority of Thailand, came up with a unique way of teaching her how to swim _ he threw her in the pool.

Mrs Chadatip, who joined Siam Piwat, the operator of Siam Discovery and Siam Centre over a decade ago, agreed retail management had its own peculiar learning curve.

''Eventually, I was able to overcome all of the problems. It's not easy to succeed in this business. It's not just a question of selling space to tenants. You have to help them survive and prosper as well,'' she said.

Ms Supaluck was also taught how to compete by her father.

''To win the game, it's not enough to just walk or run to catch up with your competitors. You have to leap as far as possible. And to make a leap, you have to be the pioneer as well,'' Ms Supaluck said.

Ms Supaluck eight years ago gained new ground in the retail market with the opening of The Emporium complex, a luxury mall blending retail boutiques and entertainment.

She said she expected Siam Paragon to generate 10 billion baht in sales in its first year, with some 100,000 visitors expected each day.

Juthamas Siriwan, the governor of the Tourism Authority of Thailand, said she believed Siam Paragon would strengthen Bangkok's position as a regional shopping destination.

Tourists who had previously gone to Singapore or Hong Kong to shop would instead extend their stay in Thailand and take advantage of what Bangkok has to offer, she said.

Shopping done by overseas tourists is expected to account for 30% to 32% of total tourism revenue, estimated at up to 425 billion baht this year, up from 27% three years ago.

























thanks Chad and all thai forumers for these great pics

The main reason why some malls are so big is because developers put in too much RIDICULOUS extras inside the so-called mall. Some malls even descend to the mediocrity of being an AMUSEMENT PARK. Some malls in Manila specifically SM Megamall is more than 310,000 square meters PURE MALL as in PURE mall, shopping, no rollercoasters, skiing parks, residential buildings, just shopping!

There are 4 or 5 big ones in the UK about 130,000 - 150,000sqm (1.4-1.6m sqft). Nothing on the scale of that 900,000 sqm monster in Bangkok though!!

I try to avoid malls wherever possible, city centre shopping is so much more enjoyable imo.

Dubai Mall is around 5 - 6 million square ft
Mall of Arabia (not annouced, however, is supposed to be bigger than Dubai mall, so I assume around 7 million sqft)

They said near 10 million sqft.

The Bangkok one is pretty much the same size. How big will MoA be once expansion is done though?

Very True. They put it in for the "look at what we've got" factor.
