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.
