Siam Paragon (Thai: สยามพารากอน) is a shopping mall in Bangkok, Thailand. It is one of the largest malls in Thailand, along with Iconsiam, CentralWorld and Central WestGate.

Siam Paragon includes a range of specialty stores and restaurants as well as a multiplex (16 large screen cinemas), the Sea Life Bangkok Ocean World aquarium, an exhibition hall, the Thai Art Gallery, and an opera concert hall. It also has a bowling alley and karaoke centre. It is a joint venture by Siam Piwat, the company that owns the adjacent Siam Center/Siam Discovery shopping malls, and The Mall Group, which owns The Emporium. Siam Paragon's financial results are not reported by the privately held Siam Paragon Development.

Siam Paragon was built on the former site of the Siam Intercontinental Hotel, which was demolished in 2002 at the end of its lease. The site, leased for 30 years, is Crown Property Bureau land and at one time was the royal parkland of Sa Pathum Palace. The mall opened on 9 December 2005 at a cost of about 15 billion baht or US$450 million. It covers an area of 52 52 rai (8.3 ha; 21 acres).


On 25 November 2016, a man fell from an escalator travelling from floors M to G, landing on the B floor in front of the Sea Life Bangkok Ocean World. The person died the following day due to his injuries. Investigators said it was likely an accidentall fall.

On 3 October 2023, at approximately 4:10 PM, a mass shooting occurred on the first floor of the shopping mall complex. Seven people were injured, two of whom died at the hospital a few minutes later. The deceased victims were a Burmese migrant worker, and a Chinese tourist. Later that day, around 5:10 PM, the police arrested a 14-year-old teenager on the third floor of the complex. The mall was temporarily closed, and the gates, including the connector entrance from the Siam BTS station, were shut down.


Siam Paragon is on Rama I Road in Pathum Wan District, adjacent to other shopping areas. It is next door to Siam Center and Siam Discovery and opposite Siam Square. MBK Center is also nearby. An elevated walkway beneath the BTS Skytrain tracks links Siam Paragon to the Ratchaprasong intersection, where CentralWorld, Gaysorn Village and several other shopping malls and hotels are located.
