BANGKOK, Dec. 23, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Siam Paragon, Thailand's world-class shopping destination, has gained prestige to Thailand after being ranked 6th as the most talked-about places among people around the world in 2015 and being the only place in Asia that has made the top 10 rankings -- according to the ranking of 20 most popular places globally talked about in 2015, announced early December by Facebook.
Opened in 2005 with an investment budget of THB 15 billion (USD 375 million), Siam Paragon Shopping Center is a world-class shopping and lifestyle phenomenon, welcoming over 300 leading international luxury labels and cutting-edge local names that suit the needs of all visitors to its 500,000 square meters of retail space in the heart of Bangkok.
Siam Paragon is home to first class entertainment and tourism venues such as Sea Life Bangkok Ocean World, South-East Asia's largest and first giant city center aquarium; KidZania Bangkok, the world's largest and Thailand's first kids attraction; and Paragon Cineplex, a cinema complex that consists of 16 premium cinemas. Moreover, the shopping center also houses Paragon Department Store, Paragon Gourmet Market, Royal Paragon Hall and Auto Gallery.
Mrs. Chadatip Chutrakul, chief executive officer of Siam Paragon Development Company Limited said, "This year marks the decade of Siam Paragon's operations. Throughout the past years, Siam Paragon has proved itself to be a project that exudes elegance with high standard and elevates Bangkok to the status of a world-class shopping destination. Siam Paragon has welcomed local shoppers and foreign tourists with no lesser than 250,000 visitors a day. As a result of the fact that Facebook gave the 6th ranking to Siam Paragon as the world's most talked about places and being the only one destination in Asia making the top 10 rankings in 2015, we thank all of you for taking part in Siam Paragon's formidable achievement."
Furthermore, Siam Paragon has become the ultimate hub of shopping and edutainment while featuring many tourist attractions dubbed landmarks.

Siam Paragon also broke the Guinness World Records two times and has been regarded for consecutive years as one of the world's places being snapped and posted most on Instagram. All of this attests to Siam Paragon's success.
"Siam Paragon has a development plan by constantly introducing new shops and special services like never before in Thailand. And importantly, we will do our best to help promote economy and project an outstanding image for Thailand to attract people worldwide to the Kingdom and mark the name on the world recognition -- showing that we are second to none.
