The ‘Siam area’ refers to Siam Square, an approximately four-block-square area with shops and eateries that caters to the tastes of students from the nearby Chulalongkorn University.
It’s the presence of ‘Chula’, as it’s known to students and residents, that serves as the reason for the younger and trendier leaning of shops and attractions in the area.

The Siam station is one of the busiest stations of the entire BTS Skytrain line.
