Getting to Terminal 21

The shopping mall is just next to BTS Asok Station and MRT Sukhumvit Station, so you could reach there BTS or MRT. We decided to take cab form our hotel, costs us 50 baht which was not much difference compare to taking BTS or MRT, for 2 persons.

When we first stepped in, we noticed some airport sign boards right in front of escalators showing the destination that the escalators leading to, the decoration and architectural concept are totally different once got down from the escalator, it was like we have been traveled to another country with a short ride.

 We spent half a day wandering around, taking our own sweet time shopping and exploring this cutting-edge concept interior design. We started from LG and go all the way up, wanted to cover all the landmarks and not to miss a single spot.

The great San Francisco Golden Gate Bridge connecting level 4F & 5F, my personal favorite architectural in Terminal 21!

 You can find most of the shops’ decorations have adapted the same design of that particular floor’s theme, with that the concept of blending different countries’ culture into one is more complete. More surprises come from the toilets, that was the first time for me to visit every level’s toilet of a shopping mall, but not for the purpose of using it for nature’s call.

That is an interesting place, we will definitely visit again.

Both of us were kind of tired, so just grabbed some street foods like Kebab [50 baht] and grilled pork sausage [20 baht] along the way back for dinner.

Surprisingly, the Kebab in Bangkok was not bad at all, so far I have had twice and both were good!

Grilled sausage is always one of my favorite, no complain.

 We tried to rest early and catch some sleep, getting ourselves fully ready for next early morning’s exciting activity, Thai cooking class!
