Most of you might have heard of Terminal 21, or more specifically, Terminal 21’s incredible themed washrooms. When you visit, you’ll feel as though you’re travelling to various countries across the world from Paris to Istanbul and even Tokyo to London.

However, most people don’t know that the shopping at Terminal21 is actually pretty good too!

While prices here are not night market prices cheap – Terminal 21 definitely provides pretty affordable mid-range quality designs, and one-of-a-kind designer brands. (And from 200 Baht, that’s not too bad right?!)

Different levels are themed according to different travel destinations. Japan, London, etc. Not only is the shopping good, the top floor also offers a smorgasbord of yummy food that’ll cater to every hungry shopper too!

All 8 exotic ‘destinations’ in Terminal 21 are the perfect reasons why it is a must-include in every Bangkok shopaholic’s itinerary. Read on!

The first stop in Paris is Poem, a really pretty shop that provides Bangkok tailoring at it’s Audrey Hepburn finest. With a ready-to-wear collection that will make you fit right in on the stylish streets of Paris, check out the romantic skirts and blouses with subtle touches that add just a right amount of style.

If there’re any Brandy Melville girls here, you’ll be happy to know that California cool is here with its backless body suits, crop tops and velvet shorts.

Another great shop we found was CPS Chaps. Weird name, we know, but this shop serves both the ladies and men. It’s a mixture of trendy, classy and eclectic all rolled into one space. We saw everything from floral blazers to sequinned tunic dresses. For the men, there’s a nice mix of basics and patterned stuff too!

What’s the point of looking good without a signature scent to go with it right? Finish up your trip to Paris with a visit to Sara’s Wand. It’s a magical floral wonderland of sweet fragrances, with 100% fresh handmade soap, lotion, and deliciously aromatic bath products.

To make things simpler, we’ll share the top 9 shops we’ve found here:

1. K9: Want to feel like a celebrity? K9 is a boutique that takes the art of fashion/dressing seriously. You’ll get the celebrity treatment with staff ensuring that the ready-to-wear pieces fit just like any tailor-made dream. (Great for quality outfits for dressier occations!)

2. Dust Fairy: Not kidding, actual celebrities frequent this shop for the incredible designs. Everything is designed inhouse and collections are released in different seasons. #Loveit

3. Wila: This brand mixes up girlhood with interesting adult silhouettes in an array of muted tones from blush pinks to dusty blues. Deconstructing classic designs into modern pieces, it’s quite genius and one-of-a-kind!4. Enchanting: At first glance, it might seem like this shop isn’t all that – but take a closer look and you’ll find treasures shining within. One example? That gorgeous off-the-shoulder floral lace top paired with a beautifully textured skirt!

Other notable stores include:
Sugar & Cream Vintage
Basement of Samantha (a second-hand consignment store where brands such as MCM, Zara, Isabel Marant X H&M, Tory Burch, etc can be found)
Black Sugar

5. Ride the subway around London – 2nd Floor

This one’s more for men, most of the shops in ‘London’ are catered to men with a variety of basic tees and tops to the wilder, whackier, more patterned designs.

For starters, Re-Edit was one of the whackier shops we saw with interesting designs for the bolder men. Camo prints, graphic tees, straw bags and a variety of hats, browsing the racks will be an adventure in itself!

Moolar offers a safer, but still trendy option for guys, with basic tees that have little design elements from subtle patterns to a couple of standout features.

If you’re looking for accessories, Ton-Tip is a good place to go for your cufflinks, bowties and more. (Fun fact, our colleague bought his wedding tie here!) Favouriteshoes is also a great option for shoes – from dress shoes to dressy sandals.

6. It’s the rise of Istanbul – 3rd Floor

This is the level where you’ll find more shoe shops for ladies. Jelly Bunny and Ballet Shoes since 1959 (handmade quality leather shoes including bespoke dance shoes!) are among the great options available.

There are more accessory shops here too from Crazy Horse (leather bags) to Rock Me Jewelry (crystal-inspired jewellery).

Other notable stores include:

Leather Balcony

7. Strut past the Golden Gate Bridge/Fisherman’s Wharf of San Francisco! – 4th/5th Floor

Once you’ve finally shopped to your heart’s content, ‘San Francisco’ is where you’ll be able to catch a breather. You will be famished by now, and it’s the perfect time to dig into all the great eats available!

Did you know that the famous Mr Jone’s Orphanage is available here? Apart from that, Farm Design is another fantastic option for drinks and desserts. If you’re looking for more filling fare, try Ootoya with its Japanese-styled restaurant and menu – while Korean cuisine awaits at Dakgalbi. #YUM

There are way too many options to list, simply walk along and take your pick!

Other notable stores include:
Pier 21 (the foodcourt!)
Hokkaido Cheese Tart
Have a Zeed

8. Do the walk of fame in Hollywood – 6th Floor

‘Hollywood’ is where you’ll find everything related to tech accessories and gadgets, but more importantly, this is where you’ll find SF Cinema!

When we say you could spend a full day in this mall (out of the sweltering Bangkok heat nonetheless), we weren’t kidding.

Apart from shopping and dining, the cinema sounds like a good idea for a spontaneous movie date, or a hilarious comedy to chill with friends to for a couple of hours.
