BANGKOK -- Tourists are being given a brand-new choice for last-minute shopping before they leave Thailand, once the government starts to loosen the country's borders that were tightened due to the novel coronavirus pandemic.

Thai mall developer Siam Piwat and U.S. mall owner Simon Property Group on Friday opened Siam Premium Outlets Bangkok, under their joint venture Siam Piwat Simon. The new luxury outlet mall, which can house over 200 brands, is located less than 10km east of Bangkok's main international airfield Suvarnabhumi Airport.
