Bang Na is the new centre for rapid commercial & industrial development in Bangkok. This place is becoming prominent due to its close proximity to the Suvarnabhumi International Airport. It is becoming a favourite retreat amongst travellers because of its rapid industrial development. The area is host to the largest shopping mall of Asia, known as Seacon Square and also houses the Bangkok International Trade & Exhibition Centre (BITEC). It serves an easy route to east of Thailand and to touristy destinations like Pattaya & Chonburi. The nearest Skytrain station here is ‘Bang Na’. Let us try and have an insight into this area’s revelations.
Seacon Square: Herculean is what it should have been called given its extra huge size. You must have seen a football field, just imagine having to see a place 96 times the area of a large football field. Well, that’s what this phenomenal “shoppertainment” plaza is all about. Besides the hundreds of shops and outlets, it also houses a huge IT mall and an even huger indoor amusement park. This is the Bangkok city’s hip and happening mall plaza bound to leave you enthralled. It also has a mini golf course, a 14 theatre Cineplex and a ‘motion simulator’ theatre. It’s a whole world inside ranging from fashion to exquisite food to a range of departmental stores. What more could you have asked for. Its just 14 kms from the Suvarnabhumi International Airport and thus becomes a favourite haunt for the transit traveller.

Bangkok International Trade & Exhibition Centre: The BITEC is a major convention and exhibition center in Bangkok. It regularly hosts events such as the annual Bangkok International Motor Show.
