Siam Park to build mini 'Bangkok City'

Siam Park Bangkok Co, an amusement and theme park operator, will allocate 3 billion baht to build a retail and entertainment project in Bangkok this year in a bid to expand its customer base.

Noppagarn Luangamornlert, the company's deputy managing director, said the budget will be used to develop "Bangkok City", a retail and entertainment project on 70 rai of land near Siam Park City amusement and water park.

The project will be developed from this year. The idea is to reproduce Bangkok's famous old towns and trade districts such as Chinatown, Sampheng and Khlong Thom. It will comprise 13 buildings, each one simulating an old town or trade district. It is expected to be completed by 2020.
