CHAPTER 2 : THE PLACES
Bangkok’s First Firsts
These iconic Gaysorn properties were the first to offer innovative retail, entertainment, hospitality and cultural experiences in Thailand.
GAYSORN SHOPPING CENTRE
Located on the corner of the Ratchaprasong Intersection Bangkok’s premier shopping centre has seen little change in terms of the location and landscape over the years however, within its iconic metallic facade and comfortable 5 level interior, there has been a stark difference in how Gaysorn is curating arts, culture and lifestyle to yet again, set the trend for all local and foreign visitors.
A staple in the Ratchaprasong District, this unique and multi- category shopping mall offers fashion, accessories, sporting goods, furniture, jewelry, handicrafts and much more.
Established in 1986, Amarin Plaza has been home to the city’s very first McDonald’s fast food restaurant, Gucci, Sogo Department Store and KFC. It continues to provide great brand sales as well as valuable tourist assistance at the Ratchaprasong Tourist Information Centre.
