The world's most valuable company has announced the opening of Apple Store in Bangkok, the first in Thailand and second in Southeast Asia after Singapore in 2017.

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 "อ", the store offers a full range of products -- iPhone, iPad, Mac, Apple TV, Apple Watch and select third-party accessories.

It also offers "Genius Bar", where customers can receive technical advice, setup and repair services by reservation. The Genius Bar provides software support for macOS and hardware service.

The Bangkok store is touted as a centre for people to exchange creative ideas, with programs and sessions to try them out.

Located at Iconsiam, a new mall in Klong San district, the store opens everyday from 10am to 10pm

Currently, there are 504 Apple Stores in the world, 271 of which are in the United States.
