The glittering world of Bangkok’s shopping temples

ICON SIAM
ICON SIAM is a new shopping temple, right next to the real temple and as one of my friends, a monk in the temples of Bangkok, said to me before „if you want me to live like a forest monk, then give me the forest and the seclusion to live in meditation, but don’t pound my brain every day with the glitters and the excitement of lay people’s lives“.

A new mall in Bangkok? How can that be? There is so many already! Yet, I had to see it on my last trip to Thailand. I was just missing the grand opening by a few days, but most of my local friends had not yet been there themselves. Despite all the glitter and shiny floors, I was positively surprised and spent a few hours in the new shopping temple, before the masses pushed in and it was almost impossible to walk through them.
