Bangkok is an amazing city, that’s a fact. One of things that is truly great about Bangkok, an ingredient that makes the city absolutely cherished around the world, is definitely its incredible variety of shopping options. Bangkok is the shopaholic’s dream, no doubt about it. But did you know that you can also visit the markets, bazaars and malls of the world all right inside Bangkok city? This can all be done within the exciting floors of Terminal 21 shopping mall.
Terminal 21 is located on the corner of fantastic Sukhumvit road and Asoke. In fact, not only is it easily reached by taxi from a hotel such as VIE Hotel Bangkok, MGallery by Sofitel, it is also accessed by two adjacent public trains. The BTS Skytrain and the MRT Subway each have a station that opens right out to it. You could not really get any closer than that.
Now what makes Terminal 21 so unique is its international airport design. As you travel up or down the escalators, signage with airplane images tell you which floor you are departing from or arriving to. And each floor you travel to is actually fabulous, a virtual trip around the world! With décor and mock-up landmarks, it is just like visiting the major cities of the world. Even the mall staff are dressed appropriately.
The below-ground floor is the Carribean and you can expect grocery shopping there. The ground floor contains the elegant and ancient statues of beautiful Rome throughout the ages. At Level M, you will visit the romantic city of Paris and its luxury shops. On Level 1, get lost amidst the markets of Tokyo shopping for the trendiest accoutrements. Level 2 takes to you London, where you will see a London City bus, a Tower Guardsmen and browse amongst the men’s clothing stores.
Istanbul and its tangle of bazaars awaits you higher than that. And on Level 4, you enjoy a view of the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco, and indulge in some Fish ‘n Chips! Go up a little higher for the cinema on the top floor of Terminal 21.
