The longest water feature in Southeast Asia has been unveiled
RISING from the banks of the Chao Phraya River in Bangkok, Thailand is ICONSIAM, the country’s biggest and fanciest shopping mall which has just opened on Nov 12, 2018.
Positioned to be a global new attraction, ICONSIAM is said to be the “Mother of All Malls” as it challenges the burgeoning retail scene in Bangkok.
A major landmark in the bustling Thai city, it boasts 500 shops and 100 restaurants from more than 30 different countries, an indoor floating market, an art gallery, an exhibition space, and impressive views of the breezy riverside.
From stores selling high-end brands to regional handicrafts to tasty food offerings and gourmet meals, ICONSIAM has it all under one roof.
Recently, it just unveiled a work of art that is sure to draw throngs of visitors – the ICONIC Multimedia Water Features, Southeast Asia’s longest light and water show.
The 400-meter water feature was created by world-renowned Spanish fountains and water feature specialist GHESA Water & Art, which has over 35 years of experience in the design, installation, and maintenance of ornamental, cybernetic, musical and multimedia fountains.
GHESA Water & Art has conceived more than 3,000 fountains around the world.
Visitors can expect to be mesmerized by the spectacular lighting designs, sounds, and multimedia which will undoubtedly add a sparkle to both ICONSIAM and the Chao Praya River.
Tall and luminous water jets which use cutting-edge compress air technology to create 2D, 3D, and 4D simulations and a magnificent water fountain are perfectly choreographed to dance to the soothing tunes of Thai instruments.
“The ICONIC Multimedia Water Feature is another of the great attractions we promised to place on the ICONSIAM site as part of our civic duty to create shared value by driving global interest in Bangkok and Thailand,” ICONSIAM Co., Ltd. director Mrs. Chadatip Chutrakul said.
“We hope it will do for Bangkok what the London Eye does for London and the Botanic Garden at the Marina Bay Sands does for Singapore, bringing benefits not only at the national level but also to the multitude of riverside communities along this stretch of the river.”
ICONSIAM’s dazzling ICONIC Multimedia Water Features is open to the public free of charge with three performances daily at 18:30, 20:00, and 21:00.
To get to ICONSIAM, take the BTS to Sapan Taksin Station and heading to the pier to hop on the free river shuttle that drops you off in front of the mall. Alternatively, you can go to Krung Thon Buri station and take a free shuttle bus.
