Like many Asian countries, the shopping mall plays a big role in the social culture of Thailand. One of the more interesting malls we came across in Bangkok was Terminal 21. This has been designed so that it feels like you are walking into an airport, then each floor’s motif is themed after certain cities around the world. As you travel from one floor to the next, you are greeted by another set of cultural stereotypes. As you move into Tokyo, there is a greeter waiting for you:
Up the escalator to London, and we were again met by the local sites.
They pretty much nailed London from what I remember of it.
From there we were off to sunny San Francisco to see the Golden Gate Bridge.
After all this travel, we needed some travel snacks. Emer found this delicious little cookie shop.
While the themes on the floor were fun, the fact that they continued right into the bathrooms really added a nice touch.
Then after a long day of travel, we found time to sit down for a nice meal and relax.
