500 shops in six floors. This is what a shopper’s heaven would look like. And yes, it does exist in Bangkok’s famous Terminal 21. Located in the heart of the capital at Aosk Junction, Terminal 21 offers everything a shopaholic would need to binge on any given day.
Here are top 4 reasons why you should visit the Terminal 21 mall:
Terminal 21 is conveniently located at Asok BTS Skytrain and MRT Sukumvit stations. This makes it a prime location at the heart of Bangkok City. There is a skywalk that connects to the mall directly from the MRT Sukumvit station and the BTS Asok Skytrain station. Hustlers Bangkok, is just across the street, right after Sheraton Grande Sukhumvit.
2. International Fashion outlets
If you want to shop for international brands, ground floor (G) houses international fashion brands like Nike, Kipling, Foc.CC:OO, Adidas, and Levi’s. Each store has Roman architecture as background, giving you the feeling of being in Rome. Floor G is Rome for you. You can also experience Champs-Elysees on the M floor of the mall. Here, stores like Poem have ready to wear chic dresses… just in case you were thinking of getting something like Audrey Hepburn for your breakfast at a fancy restaurant.
3. Local Labels
Floors 1st to 3rd will amaze you with mini shops which house local independent labels selling fashion accessories, beauty products, apparels, and décor items. Each store has elaborate window decorations, displaying garments in the styles of the 60s and 80s. Some vintage stores like Sugar and Cream on Floor Tokyo (1st floor) are a must visit with baskets of bags and clothes that invite vintage lovers to rummage through items in search of something unique and stylish to add to their collection.
4. Gastronomic Experience
Your trip to Terminal 21 would be incomplete if you fail to take the escalator to San Francisco (4th and 5th floor) where you can either choose to eat at restaurants or eat cheap and delicious food at the food court. Themed China Town of San Francisco, the 4th floor has some famous Japanese restaurants such as Fuji Japanese Restaurant, Mo-Mo Paradise, Ootoyo, and Hachiban Ramen.
If you want Thai food, you can try the Terrace and Secret Recipe or even SanSab for traditional Isaan food from the northeast of Thailand. If none of these appeal to your taste buds, try Mexican food at Tacos Sunrise which serves delicious, homemade-like tacos, quesadillas, and burritos.
If you still can’t make up your mind, head up to the Pier 21 Food Court on the 5th floor where you will find delicious food at an overwhelmingly cheap price. As many visitors who go there often say “Look no further than Terminal 21 Food Court.”
We are sure that Terminal 21 will offer everyone, regardless of whether they are expats, tourists or locals an amazing experience.
