In popular culture[edit]

Pantip Plaza is featured in a hit song by Loso, "Pantip", which has a hook chorus, "Ja mai pai Pantip" ("จะไม่ไปพันธุ์ทิพย์" - "(I) will not go to Pantip") and is about a man dating a woman and taking her shopping at World Trade Center, MBK Center, and Siam Square, but he refuses to take her to Pantip Plaza because his ex-girlfriend works there. It is used in many governments' advertising campaigns to promote anti-infringement issues in Thailand.
