It’s a mall, not a train nor bus nor airport terminal. Yet this place near Soi 21 (soi is thai for side street) transports one to famous cities around the world. There’s Tokyo, Istanbul, London, Paris, San Francisco, Rome — and the “airport feel” is enhanced by Reception Desks manned by ladies donned like flight stewardesses and signboards much like one finds in airport departure and arrival areas.
Fascinating mall. It looked just as charming as when I first visited 4 years ago. Thought of revisiting to show my family as well as meet up with friends. Having arrived early, tried the Spa at the top floor where I had the best Thai massage and body stretching. What a relaxing way to spend one’s time before dinner!
The shopping here may not be as “good” (read: cheap) as in other Bangkok malls and markets, but the themes on every floor are really cute-sy. The Tokyo floor included huge statues of 2 sumo-wrestlers and an alley complete with Japanese lanterns. San Francisco floor included the iconic Golden Gate bridge, cable car and Wharf. Istanbul had those elegant Oriental lamps and stained glasses, while a red and white lighthouse dominates the Carribean floor.
As my grandchildren would say, so many instagrammable angles! And the food stalls on the 5th offer a good variety too! Just love this modern “international ” mall 😄
