LG Caribbean

This is the name of the lower ground floor and it has a distinct Caribbean theme. You’ll find two things here, food and banks. Where the prior is concerned, this is one of the best places in Bangkok, where you can find everything from fine Japanese burgers to western classics and gourmet groceries.

Level G Rome/Level M Paris

These two floors are named after these cities for good reason since they showcase the most luxurious and elite brands the mall has to offer. All high-end brands from Jaspar to Victoria’s Secret are situated on these floors.

Level 1 Tokyo/Level 2 London

These two floors combined offer some of the best clothes-shopping in Bangkok, with Level 1 catering to women, and Level 2 for men. If you’re staying at a Bangkok apartment hotel nearby, such as Adelphi Forty-Nine and wish to indulge in some shopping, do not miss these floors!

Level 3 Istanbul/Level 4+5 San Francisco

Level 3 is the most eclectic of all the floors and features everything from accessories to toys. San Francisco is the theme of both the 4th and 5th floors, which offer an absolutely astonishing array of eateries.

About

The Terminal 21 mall is said to be different from its predecessors as it gives importance to privately owned stores and not the usual international chain brand stores like the other malls.

Going in

You’d be able to find everything from a dishwasher soap bar to a high-end handbag worth hundred thousand dollars within this building. Unique stores line up along most of its floors while the first floor is filled with the brands that we expect and mall to have.

Location

Located in Sukhumvit, this mall is within close proximity to hotels and service apartments in Bangkok the likes of Adelphi Forty- Nine.

When to go

Avoid the weekends if you hate crowds. The mall opens at 10am every day of the week, and stays open until 10pm unless you are watching a night show at the cinema and the movie runs until after. You can expect to use most of the major credit and debit cards within the malls, but when it comes to the privately owned stores, it is better to ask ahead, especially if it’s a restaurant.

The culture in Bangkok – A mix of it all

Bangkok is a traditional country and is also the place people think of when they want fashionable clothes or great shopping destinations.

Culture

The culture in Bangkok displays its prominence in Thailand, be it religious or traditional values. Buddhism is the main religion and has been so for centuries now. Ancient, ruins, temples, statues and architecture can be found all around the country and most of the major religious spots call Bangkok their home.

Festivals

Apart from the attractions and religious places that bring in tourists and worshippers alike, Bangkok is also famous for its fun and colourful festivals that happen throughout the year. Hotel rates are at their highest during the festivals and renting out a serviced apartment in Thonglor is a good idea if you are travelling in a group. You have a lot of variety to choose from, be it Adelphi Forty- Nine or something similar. The Songkran festival happens in April, followed by Loi Krathong, which takes place in November. The Golden Mount Fair also happens at the end of November, and apart from these annual festivals, the birthdays of the members of the royal families are also celebrated nationwide, making for more fun events to attend.
