Pick up a giant Tang dynasty Buddha head. Or go for a Ching dynasty painting of the emperor for a cool US$68,555. Also expect giant drums, Buddha heads from Burma and other curios. Ashwood has a ground floor showroom too.
Just a station or two down is the Siam Square junction that leads to Siam Discovery, Siam Center and the humongous Mah Boon Krong (or MBK as it is commonly known). Pick a juice and head for the renovated Siam Center One which has local fashions, trendy bargains and few international brands plus some popular fast food and drink outlets. Look out for Sisley, Swatch, Levi&rsquo s, Benetton, local designer Jaspal, and the welcome ice-cold Haagen Dazs.

Getting around continental Southeast Asia as well as intra-island travel in the various islands of Southeast Asia by car is possible, but definitely not for the faint hearted. While you can drive yourself around Singapore , Malaysia and Brunei without any major problems after giving yourself some time to get used to the relative lack of road courtesy, traffic conditions elsewhere range from just bad to total chaos. As such, it is advisable to rent a car with a driver, and not try to drive yourself around.
