The store will feature Apple’s full line of products including iPhone XS, iPhone XR and Apple Watch Series 4, and will invite visitors to pursue their creative passions with free Today at Apple sessions.

Elevated above the “River of Kings” in the heart of Bangkok, Apple Iconsiam sits alongside storied sites and cultural landmarks.

eamlessly connecting the new mixed-use ICONSIAM Center to an outdoor roof terrace, the store’s clean, trapezoidal design lines and glass surfaces accentuate the natural beauty of its surroundings while creating an open, airy atmosphere effacing boundaries between interior and exterior.

Apple Iconsiam features two expansive glass facades that create transparency through the store to the river, city and beyond. As customers walk in through a sweeping curve stone entry, their journey continues to the lush roof garden, where they can admire local art, participate in a Today at Apple photo or sketch walk, or simply enjoy iconic views of Bangkok.

Inside the store, a spacious Forum offers all of Apple’s free Today at Apple sessions, which inspire visitors to connect with one another, discover a new passion or take their skills to the next level. These hands-on sessions, led by Creative Pros, offer tools for all to explore their creative curiosity and learn to make the most of Apple products and services.

More than 100 employees are ready to welcome customers on Saturday at 10 a.m.
