Bangkok takes pride in being one of the world’s best shopping destinations. The city is known for offering a wide variety of options, from internationally renowned brands to handcrafted local products.
To make your shopping experience even more exciting, some of Bangkok’s biggest retail haunts, in particular the malls under the OneSiam brand—Siam Paragon, Siam Discovery and Siam Center—are offering complimentary perks and privileges to tourists, some of which may come as a pleasant surprise.
Ahead of your next visit at these establishments, take a look at these seven free things that can boost your shopping experience.
1. Free Tourist Card
First things first, OneSiam offers a Tourist Card that comes with benefits you wouldn’t want to say no to. Apply for the card online to get discounts up to 30 percent at participating shops and restaurants, as well as five percent off at each mall’s department store. OneSiam malls also make it easy to apply for a VAT refund on your purchases.

3.Free Pride-themed essential oil @Siam Center
For the entire month of June, Bangkok is celebrating diversity, equality and love of all kinds in honor of the LGBTQ+ community.
