Apple Iconsiam, overlooking the Chao Phraya, will open its doors on Nov 10 at 10am, the company announced on its Thailand website.

With the logo slightly modified to resemble the Thai alphabet letter “อ”, the store offers a full range of products — iPhone, iPad, Mac, Apple TV, Apple Watch and select third-party accessories.

A post on Apple’s website reveals that it will operate a retail store at the soon-to-open Iconsiam which is set to become Bangkok’s largest mall when it opens next month.

Apple’s official presence in Asia had been limited to China, Hong Kong and Japan until recent times when it opened stores in Korea, Taiwan and Singapore.

Most countries in Southeast Asia are served by ‘licensed’ Apple stores from third-parties and official retailers

Thailand will be the 8th Asian country offering an Apple store after China (42), Japan (9), Hong Kong (6), Macau (2), South Korea (1), Taiwan (1) and Singapore (1).
