The Siam Paragon is an immensely popular shopping mall housing a host of international high-end fashion brands, Southeast Asia’s largest aquarium, a 16-screen Cineplex, and a comprehensive selection of world cuisine. Located prominently in front of Siam BTS Skytrain station - the interchange of the two BTS lines - it is considered by many to be the centre of Bangkok.
Considering the mall contains over 250 shops, the layout is logical and fairly compact, certainly when compared to the sprawling Central World mall nearby. However, this mall provides mainly luxury items for well-heeled Thais and international visitors with cash to splurge. If you are looking for something extra-special then Siam Paragon is definitely the place to find it.
Siam Paragon is organising the 8th majestic orchid exhibition “Siam Paragon Bangkok Royal Orchid Paradise” under the “Magnificent Orchid: A Borderless Path To ASEAN Paradise” theme. The event, from 26 November to 1 December 2014, will feature more than 600,000 beautiful orchid blossoms. Some of the orchids presented are from the ten ASEAN member countries. Some of the most beautiful and finest orchid blossoms will be used to decorated two five-metre tall structures, in the shape of Hanuman and Yaksha from the famous Ramayana legend.
The orchid-giants will tower next to the Thai-styled gate representing the door to ASEAN amid the splendour of the dazzling orchid orchard at Botanical Garden on M floor in the centre of Siam Paragon. During the event, there will be an exhibition showcasing the best selected orchids from each province around the country. Orchids to be on display will include Dendrobium Pompadour from Bangkok, Famui from Chiang Mai, Vando Udorn Sunshine fron Udonthani, and Daeng Ubon from Ubonthani.
There are also informative exhibitions such as the model orchids with four new orchid species found in Thailand: Wan Pendin Yen Umpang, Eungkleeb Tid Phannga and Eung Rangnok Thai Thong. There are also orchid arrangements by leading hotels Siam Kempinski and Royal Orchid Sheraton. Activities include orchid art exhibition from Toshiba Thailand Company Limited. The highlight is the orchid competition that will see the winners being award the trophy by Her Royal Highness Princess Maha Chakri Sirindhorn.
