Terminal 21 Mall in Bangkok

One of the main things we planned to do when we went to Bangkok last month was go to Terminal 21, a mall we had never been to before in our previous trips. What got me interested to explore this mall was the fact that it had a "travel/airport" theme, with each floor representing a different country.

we took the train and went down at ASOK station, which has a direct access to the mall

According to Bangkok.com, the nine floors at Terminal 21 house some 600 shops, a Cineplex, supermarket and a food court with all kinds of mouthwatering Thai and international fare. 

The basement level (LG) has a Caribbean theme and is where you will find the Gourmet Market, take-away food outlets, market-style food vendors as well as banks and bookstores. 

The ground floor brings you to Rome, with all kinds of international and local fashion labels such as Kipling, Fox, CC:OO, Nike, Jaspal, Adidas, Levi’s, and more.

Paris on M floor takes you to the Champs-Élysées, where more fashion brands await your discovery. The 1st to 3rd floors are home to smaller shops by local independent labels. 

Women’s fashion is found on the 1st floor (Tokyo).

The men’s section is on the 2nd floor (London). They also have lots of nice picture taking spots like the ones below.

The 3rd floor (Istanbul) is for gifts, jewellery, fashion accessories, toys, beauty products and home décor. With an eclectic collection of shops, this floor has a look and feel of a Middle Eastern zouk but with a modern twist.

Now to the main highlight, San Francisco on the 4th and 5th floors, where you will find more than 50 restaurants and cafés. Both restaurant chains and independent outlets are represented here, among them Pepper Lunch, MK, Chabuton, Dory Seafood Bistro, Secret Recipe, Tohkai Yakiniku, Tony Roma’s, Fuji, Ootoya, The Canton House, Baanying Café and Swensen’s. If you like a food court experience, head up to Pier 21 on the 5th floor.

where to eat, where to eat? so many choices at the food court...

To complete the lifestyle experience, Terminal 21 also has an eight-screen cineplex on the 6th floor operated by SF Cinema City. Two of these eight cinemas have digital 3D screens.

I wasn't really planning on shopping here since of course it was expensive compared to the tiangges and Platinum Mall. But then, I was surprised to find out that there was an H&M store here and they were on SALE! Winner! ;p

We had a nice time exploring this mall. Even if you don't plan on shopping, just the overall ambiance and displays per floor is enough to keep you occupied. And of course, lots of food choices! Hopefully we can come back again sometime soon. :)

even their bathrooms have themes!

    1. Yes sis, coming up soon un mga binili ko! hehe! ;p

  2. Hi, I'm planning to go to Bangkok and we will be staying at Arnoma Hotel too. Terminal 21 looks exciting based on your blog post. Can you teach me how to get there via MRT? My 2-year old son will be tagging along will it be difficult to take the MRT?

    1. The MRT is just a few minutes walk from Arnoma. Basically, you're coming from the CHIT LOM station and you have to go down at ASOK station. It's just 3 stops away so very near. Well, the train can get full especially during rush hour. We were just standing up but since short distance lang naman, like 5 minutes ride, I don't think it will be a problem. Enjoy your trip! :)
