Shopping Around The World

Guess where we were in this picture?

London, you say? Nope!

That's taken at Terminal 21 Mall - one of the recent addition to the huge and glitzy malls in Bangkok.

In this time and age, it is not enough to have a huge mall. You need gimmicks to attract customers. And this mall just does that. I wouldn't bother going there (take a train ride) just to shop when I can shop in the mall right in front of my hotel.

Terminal 21 is a one floor one theme concept Mall. They used the famous world cities in the world to represent each floor like Caribbean, Rome, Paris, Tokyo, London, San Francisco, Istanbul and Hollywood.

From the looks of it, they have attracted not just locals but tourists as well. The Caribbean floor (lower ground level) which has a Lighthouse is an easy favorite spot. In fact, we saw a lot of people having their picture taken with the lighthouse as their backdrop.

So if you want to "tour" and shop around the world, you know where to go :)
