Shopping Mall
“Terminal 21 brings the dream of traveling the world to downtown Bangkok, with its cutting-edge concept that places several world-famous cities under one roof. Find yourself wandering around a maze of shops in Tokyo City, sauntering down London’s Carnaby Street, bagging a bargain in an Istanbul zouk, or shopping for something to fill your growling stomach at the Fisherman’s Wharf in San Francisco. ”

Shopping Plaza
“ASIATIQUE, The Riverfront will be Bangkok’s first large-scale riverside project combining shopping, dining, sightseeing, activities and events under one roof. The strong cultural aspect is what sets it apart from other shopping malls. Embracing history, but avoiding the cultural clichés and traditional symbols, it strikes a balance between tradition and globalization.

Shopping Mall
“MBK Center is probably Bangkok's most legendary shopping mall, popular with both tourists and locals, and busy with shoppers every day. There are eight floors packed with 2,000 shops that sell everything from clothing, fashion accessories, handbags, leather products and luggage to furniture, mobile phones, electric appliances, cameras, stationery and DVDs. Launched in 1986, MBK Center is a beehive of activity, especially on weekends, when half of Bangkok converges to shop for bargains. It's not as up-market or stylish as neighbouring Siam Discovery, Siam Centre and the glitzy Siam Paragon, but it offers a mind-boggling range of goods spread over 89,000 square metres and is considerably less expensive. MBK Center is particularly easy to reach thanks to a direct walkway linking to National Stadium BTS Skytrain Station. Literally every taxi driver knows this most famous of shopping malls in Bangkok too, so you can hail a cab from anywhere but traffic can be intense. ”

“CentralWorld mega-shopping complex offers one of the most exciting shopping experiences in Bangkok. It has everything from brand name clothing boutiques, funky fashion, high-tech gadgets, bookshops and designer furniture to imported groceries, a lineup of banks, beauty salons, gourmet eateries and even an ice-skating rink. With so many tantalising options to explore, you could easily spend half a day here without realising it. It will come as no surprise to anyone who has experienced the incredible size of CentralWorld that this is, in fact, the largest mall in Thailand and among the largest in the world. We think it’s safe to say that if you are looking for a shopping fix in Bangkok this place will deliver. ”

Park
“Built in 1992 to celebrate Queen Sirikit's 60th birthday, Benjasiri Park is often referred to as 'Queen's Park'. This is definitely the place to be for sculpture lovers, as several of the best examples of Thai sculpture are scattered around the park. The centrepiece fountain, showcasing the work of master sculptor Mesium Yipinsoy, feature multimedia 'water dance' shows three times daily (at 6:00, 12:00 and 18:00). ”

Museum
“one of the best low-key destinations in Bangkok, the old colonial house of a British traveler from a century ago, perfectly preserved, with abundant memories from a time long gone. The shops (which you also find at airport and malls) are great places to buy fine affordable Thai clothing, or souvenirs for home”

Art Museum
“The Bangkok Art and Centre (BACC) is the hub of Bangkok’s burgeoning art scene and offers the widest range of contemporary art, design, music, theatre and film in the city. Located only a few minutes walk National Stadium BTS it hosts a number of changing exhibitions from both Thai and International artists. Entry is free and the centre is open from 10.00 till 21.00 every day except Mondays. Whilst it has not quite reached the calibre of the great art centres in London and New York its potential is evident and it is worth dedicating an hour or so for a visit. Both inside and outside the building is reminiscent of the Guggenheim in New York, with its huge white curving facade and spiral walkways. It stands out on the corner of the Pathumwan intersection amongst the shopping centres and often displays some interesting sculptures in the front square. It finally opened in 2008, 13 years after the idea was first suggested. Political stumbling blocks, changes in government and granting funding prolonged the process. The advocacy paid off and it continues to dedicate itself to the aim of providing somewhere for locals and visitors to define and explore art and culture. As well as over 4000 square metre of exhibition space it also houses shops, an art library and a couple of cafes serving coffee and snacks.

As well as over 4000 square metre of exhibition space it also houses shops, an art library and a couple of cafes serving coffee and snacks. The exhibitions on display vary. It has an international feel with explanations in English and bilingual staff on hand to enhance the experience. At times the large space can feel empty but once you step inside the galleries the innovation is obvious. Rotating curators such as Luckana Kunavichayanont and Apinan Poshyananda ensure that there is always something exciting and challenging to see. Over the past few years this has included new Asian photography, the Young Thai Artist Award, contemporary Japanese crafts and The Mekong River Art Project. The art centre has quickly become a popular hangout for students, although the enthusiasm has not always been picked up by the general public and visitors to the area. Whilst there are some limitations and not every display is of world-class standard it does give a great insight into modern culture in Thailand. Tip: It is worth picking up the Bangkok Art Map during your visit if you are interested in exploring some of the smaller galleries in town. Partly sponsored by the BACC it provides a monthly update on the current exhibitions and their locations throughout the city. Opening Hours: Tue - Sun 10:00 - 21:00(closed on Monday) BTS: National Stadium Address: 939 Rama 1 Road, Wangmai, Pathumwan, Bangkok 10330 Tel: +66 (0)2 214 6630 ”
