Terminal 21 mall Bangkok Thailand

Terminal 21 from 1st floor

Terminal 21 building เทอมินอล 21 is a new and mixed-use complex on Sukhumvit Road, near Asoke intersection in Bangkok, Thailand. It opened in October 2011 and it is unique by it's design concept of the floors.

It has two parts of the complex:
A. The retail complex has a total of 9 stories. Main anchors are health club of Fitness First 8 screens of SF Cinema City and Gourmet Market, a supermarket of The Mall Group.
B. The Grande Centre Point Hotel & Residence Sukhumvit-Terminal 21 has a total of 42 stories, 202 metres high building.

Terminal 21 is a one floor - one concept shopping mall and we decided to visit it on the 3rd of January 2012 as it was still a national holiday in Thailand. Overall it is a nice new place which tries to make you feel like in an airport as all the floors have Departure signs and there are some other signs similar to an airport.

2nd Floor - London
This decorated sculptures with iconic red telephone boxes, London's double-decker busses, Tower Bridge and Union Jack Flag.
