Super travel tips, all road tested by David Herd. I'm an Australian guy who moved to Thailand in 2011 & still travel the world as often as possible.

Siam Discovery Bangkok Shopping Mall

December 14, 2016 by David Herd

Extraordinary shopping experience

Siam Discovery Bangkok Shopping Mall

 Siam Discovery Bangkok Shopping Mall has a rather sophisticated concept of presenting it’s fabulous products, compared to most other Bangkok shopping malls is quite fabulous & unique. For instance the above photo is at Dean & Deluca which is a chain of upscale grocery stores.

Dean & Deluca

Siam Discovery Bangkok Shopping Mall

  I never thought I would say it but Bangkok now rivals Tokyo with the highest quality shopping experience in the world. It’s certainly not by accident however as the concept in this store was created with the help of a Japanese design company called Nendo, and the result as you will see is quite remarkable.

Feeling lazy?

Siam Discovery Bangkok Shopping Mall

No problem, grab one of these mini Segways & make a nuisence of youself on the sidewalk. 🙂 They say you can travel up to 20 km on a single charge. Here’s a tip from the FiveStarVagabond, you will buy a lot cheaper on Lazada. 🙂

Need something to hold onto?

Siam Paragon Shopping Mall Bangkok

Siam Paragon Shopping Mall Bangkok

Siam Paragon Shopping Mall Bangkok Siam Paragon Shopping Mall Bangkok opened about 10 years ago in 2006, I remember how impressed I was with this amazing new shopping mall with it’s wide aisles and fabulous food court and supermarket.

Now of course there are many new super malls in Bangkok to compete with including Central Embassy and EmQuartier.

Shops on the 1st floor

Siam Paragon Shopping Mall Bangkok

Here is a guide to some of the shops.

Siam Paragon, Hanging fences

Siam Paragon Shopping Mall Bangkok Another photo taken way back in 2006 of the Siam Paragon, Hanging fences, I’m not sure if they are still there or not.

 The Main floor

Siam Paragon Shopping Mall Bangkok

Strangely the level that is linked to the skywalk is called the Main Floor, despite it being one above the ground, and the floors above that are then the 1st, 2nd, 3rd, up to the 5th, which is taken up by the Cineplex and its 15 large size theatres. There is direct access to the centre from Siam BTS Skytrain station.

Siam Paragon is opposite MBK

Siam Paragon Shopping Mall Bangkok

Only 5 minutes walk on an elevated path from the well know MBK centre.

BTS Skytrain

Siam Paragon Shopping Mall Bangkok As I mentioned for Siam Paragon get of at Siam station, MBK is actually one stop further at National Stadium station.

Food food & more food.

Central Embassy Shopping Mall Bangkok

May 17, 2016 by David Herd

Central Embassy Shopping Mall Bangkok

Central Embassy Shopping Mall Bangkok Central Embassy Shopping Mall Bangkok in Chidlom is full of high end designer stores, all the famous labels are here.  There is direct access from two sky train stations, Chidlom and Ploenchit. It is also connected to Central Chidlom which is their flagship store.

Amazing architecture

Central Embassy Shopping Mall Bangkok Everything about Central Embassy oozes class & luxury, some of the many labels include Versace, Gucci, Prada,  Givenchy and many more, in other words it’s way above my pay grade. 🙂

Prada

Central Embassy Shopping Mall Bangkok From memory according to Merryl Streep the devil wears it. A great friend of mine in Australia often refers to his wife as “The Prada Princess”, that’s ok because he can afford her expensive tastes.

And the beat goes on

Central Embassy Shopping Mall Bangkok I remember visiting the spot where Versace was shot dead in 1997 on the steps of his Miami home. Fifty is way too young to die.

Central Embassy Shopping Mall Bangkok 

Central Embassy Shopping Mall Bangkok The prices at the bakery reflect the surroundings.

Harrods bakery

Central Embassy Shopping Mall Bangkok Now here is a familiar name from good old London town.

Shop till you drop

Central Embassy Shopping Mall Bangkok A word of warning to my male friends, don’t tell your wife about Central Embassy Shopping Mall.

Central Embassy Shopping Mall Bangkok, Dean & Deluca

Central Embassy Shopping Mall Bangkok A great place for coffee and cake and lots of other goodies.

Dean & Deluca Central Embassy Shopping Mall

Central Embassy Shopping Mall Bangkok There are many branches in Bangkok including EmQuartier another favourite mall of mine.

VW cocktail car

Central Embassy Shopping Mall Bangkok There are many of these converted VWs where I live in Pattaya, what a great idea. No way you could do it in Australia, far too many ridiculous rules and regulations. 🙂

Central Embassy Shopping Mall

Central Embassy Shopping Mall Bangkok Central Embassy Shopping Mall has a great feel about it, uncluttered and luxurious, I have a lot more to investigate on my next Bangkok visit.

 Great design the Park Hyatt

Sukhumvit Road Ploenchit Another wonderful design the Park Hyatt hotel above Central Embassy is expected to open late 2016. Central Embassy will be hoping they will bring potential customers as their traffic since opening has been disappointing.

A wonderful Bangkok food hall

Central food hall Chidlom Bangkok Central food hall Chidlom Bangkok is quite fantastic, smaller perhaps than other bigger malls close by however the quality and presentation is first class.

Central food hall Chidlom Bangkok

Central food hall Chidlom Bangkok Central has several department store branches in Bangkok, Chidlom however is their flagship store and attracts many expats and “well to do” Thai shoppers.

Central wine celler

Central food hall Chidlom Bangkok Many years ago in Sydney Australia I owned a liquor store, believe me it was nothing like you see here. In those days I would store my favourite reds until it was the right time to drink them and what an incredible difference that made.

I sometimes visit friends of mine in Australia who have a vineyard, now that is a lot of fun, follow this link to see what I mean.

Central food hall Chidlom

Terminal 21 Bangkok food

March 25, 2016 by David Herd

Asoke on Sukhumvit

Terminal 21 Bangkok

Terminal 21 Bangkok, food shopping and entertainment at this convenient shopping mall right beside Asoke railway station on Sukhumvit Road.

Relaxing in the air-conditioning

Terminal 21 Bangkok Bangkok temperatures are so high many people like to relax in the cool shopping malls. Terminal 21 is not as modern as many other Bangkok malls such as Siam Centre, The Emporium or EmQuartier however it offers all the attractions such as low cost food, a supermarket and a convenient central location.

Very good food court

Terminal 21 Bangkok All the usual selections are available here.

 photo Terminal 21 Asoke 8.jpg           photo Terminal 21 Asoke 9.jpg           photo Terminal 21 Asoke 11.jpg

Terminal 21 Bangkok allows you to eat cheaply from as little as B30 a dish, or you can go more upmarket if you wish.

 Here is the terminal

Terminal 21 Bangkok This lighthouse model dominates the entrance to Terminal 21, I wonder how many times it has been photographed?

Victoria’s Secret

Terminal 21 Bangkok Lots of upmarket fashion shops to keep the ladies happy and spending their money.

The Westin Grande Sukhumvit

The Westin Hotel Adjacent to Terminal 21 Bangkok is the upmarket Westin Hotel, only a 5-minute walk from the Sukhumvit metro sky train and a 10-minute walk from the lake and gardens at Benjakiti Park. Use this link for a great room rate.

Luxury skyscrapers

Terminal 21 Bangkok As you can clearly see the surrounding area is full of luxury upmarket buildings. In fact there seems to be a building boom all over the city.

Mini Golden Gate bridge

Terminal 21 Bangkok Terminal 21 has a spectacular mini Golden Gate Bridge spanning the central atrium.  In fact each floor has a theme for a different city.

 Grande Centre Point Hotel

 Terminal 21 Bangkok Grande Centre Point Hotel is another luxury five star hotel at Terminal 21, use this link for an excellent room rate.

Terminal 21 Bangkok

Tony Romas

Terminal 21 Bangkok Famous for ribs, I had not eaten at Tony’s for 10 years when they were on Sukhumvit at Nana.

Carolina Honey Ribs

Terminal 21 Bangkok They tasted as good as they looked but I really should have ordered the half serve, the standard was a little too much for me.

Washed down with red wine

Terminal 21 Bangkok

The waitress gave me a nice bag to carry home the 1/2 a bottle that I still had left.

Terminal 21 Bangkok

Terminal 21 Bangkok Many thanks for visiting my Terminal 21 Bangkok photo blog. Put this interesting shopping mall on your bucket list.

Amazing EmQuartier shopping mall Bangkok

November 1, 2015 by David Herd

EmQuartier

Amazing EmQuartier shopping mall Bangkok Amazing EmQuartier shopping mall Bangkok opened in March 2015 & I’m blown away by the amazing food hall at this new shopping mall opposite the Emporium. I never thought I would say it but Bangkok now rivals Tokyo with the highest quality food presentation in the world.

Street Food Fair

Amazing EmQuartier shopping mall Bangkok Everything I saw was simply top quality.

Amazing EmQuartier shopping mall Bangkok food hall

Amazing EmQuartier shopping mall Bangkok There are dozens of restaurants, offices, event halls and a nice atrium garden featuring a waterfall. There’s direct access from Phrom Phong BTS Skytrain and walkway to the original Emporium mall across the road.

au bon pain

Amazing EmQuartier shopping mall Bangkok One of my favourite coffee chains, I often have breakfast at the Pattaya branch, a bacon & egg croissant & a medium latte.

Wonderful liquor store

Amazing EmQuartier shopping mall Bangkok

Way back in the 80s I owned a liquor in Sydney, it looked nothing like this. 🙂

Nice to see my favorite Australian wine here.

Amazing EmQuartier shopping mall Bangkok

Sadly Penfold’s wine is far too expensive in Thailand.

Jones the grocer

Amazing EmQuartier shopping mall Bangkok

Quite a beautifully designed store.

So many choices at EmQuartier and so little time.

Harrods at Amazing EmQuartier shopping mall Bangkok

Amazing EmQuartier shopping mall Bangkok No, we are not in London, we are in Bangkok.

Inside Harrods

Amazing EmQuartier shopping mall Bangkok The choices of restaurants and coffee shops is mind boggling.

Wine I love you

Amazing EmQuartier shopping mall Bangkok What a great name for a restaurant, as well as the indoor area there is a terrace that overlooks downtown Bangkok,  they offer Asian and Western choices for appetisers & mains, catering to a variety of tastes, all at very affordable prices.

I wanted to order the lamb shank but they were sold out, when I remarked “but it’s only 12.15,” the waitress informed me they only get 4 shanks each day and we have been opened since 10 am. When I think about it it probably ensures they always have fresh produce to serve.

Amazing EmQuartier Bangkok

Amazing EmQuartier shopping mall Bangkok Wine I love you at Amazing EmQuartier Bangkok is one of many restaurants with wonderful décor.

 Meerkats on guard

Amazing EmQuartier shopping mall Bangkok Part of the nice garden area where people can relax and kids can play.

Did I mention the guard dog?

David Herd Thailand

EmQuartier has its very own guard dog.

It really is a pleasure exploring this wonderful new mall.

Oysters at Crab and Claw, 7th Floor Helix Building.

EmQuartier lobsters  Lobsters, New England Clam Chowder and a good selection of oysters (Kumamoto, Calm Cove, Royal, etc…) and fresh home-made pasta.  Lots of choices at this popular establishment. The lobster roll is Crab & Claw’s signature dish, however it will set you back around B1000.

They have recently opened at Siam Paragon as well.

Entrée at Crab and Claw

Amazing EmQuartier shopping mall Bangkok An interesting dish featuring a crab with little black hamburger rolls and a crab filling. Although it was a little light on the crab, tasty but I would not order again. A very good selection of (expensive) Oysters from all over the world, average price between B500 & B600 for 3.

For a very good budget hotel in Soi 11 Sukhumvit you can’t beat Citadines.

If you want to go upmarket try the Marriot on Sukhumvit, great rate using this link.

Fabulous supermarket

Food is beautifully displayed in keeping with the entire complex.

Siam Paragon Bangkok Super Cars

July 3, 2015 by David Herd

McLaren 12C coupe

Siam Paragon Bangkok Super Cars Siam Paragon Bangkok Super Cars will take your breath away, it seems very unusual to see all these magnificent vehicles in a city shopping mall. Which would you buy if you had a black Amex?

Aston Martin Vanquish

Siam Paragon Bangkok Super Cars When it comes to sheer automotive glamour there are few – if any – car manufacturers that have the goods to go head-to-head with the century-old British sports car manufacturer, Aston Martin. That’s especially true of the all-new Aston Martin Vanquish.

The new flagship Vanquish may well be one of the most beautiful cars in the world, but if you believe the brand’s design director, Marek Reichman, the Vanquish is also “the best Aston Martin thus far”.

Reach for your Black Amex, it will only set you back $472,840 in Australia.

Perhaps you prefer a red one?

Siam Paragon Super Cars

Any colour would be fine with me.

 

Rolls Royce, say no more…..

Siam Paragon Bangkok Super Cars Rolls-Royce Limited is a renowned English car-manufacturing and, later, aero-engine manufacturing company founded by Charles Stewart Rolls and Sir Frederick Henry Royce on 15 March 1906 as the result of a partnership formed in 1904.

BMW 8 is another of the Siam Paragon Super Cars

Siam Paragon Bangkok Super Cars The BMW i8 is ready to revolutionise its vehicle class. As the first sports car with the consumption and emission values of a compact car. The strength of the plug-in hybrid lies, among other factors, in the perfect synchronisation of electric motor and combustion engine, which makes itself apparent in maximum efficiency and dynamics on the road. The first sports car that even accelerates the zeitgeist.

A super looking machine from any angle.

Mini Cooper S

Siam Paragon Bangkok

John Cooper, owner of the Cooper Car Company and designer and builder of Formula One and rally cars, saw the potential of the Mini for competition. Issigonis was initially reluctant to see the Mini in the role of a performance car, but after John Cooper appealed to BMC management, the two men collaborated to create the Mini Cooper. The Austin Mini Cooper and Morris Mini Cooper debuted in 1961.

 

Classic Jaguar

 

Siam Paragon Bangkok Super CarsI do have a soft spot for the Jaguar, I owned a beautiful red E-Type in the 70s and also a silver XJ6.

Siam Center Bangkok food court

December 15, 2014 by David Herd

Siam Center Bangkok

siam center bangkokSiam Centre Bangkok food court offers a huge choice of restaurants in a nice air conditioned environment. Next door to Siam Paragon and opposite MBK, you can spend days eating and shopping here. The choice of restaurants in Bangkok is amazing, everything from spectacular rooftop venues to the best street food in the world.

Charcoal Grill

siam center bangkokSiam Center Bangkok was built in 1973 and was one of Bangkok’s first shopping malls. It has undergone renovation several times, including after a fire in 1995. In January 11, 2013, Siam Center established the new phase and re-branding itself as Siam Center The Ideaopolis.


 

 

Food Republic Siam Center Bangkok

siam center bangkokSiam Center Bangkok food court – or Food Republic, to use its proper name – is a welcome addition to Bangkok’s already plentiful supply. This stylish, gun-metal grey collection of food and beverage stalls has one of the best spreads of world cuisine of any in the capital and a modern décor that blurs the line between food court and restaurant. It’s cool, clean and bustling with a varied clientèle of locals and tourists.

So many attractive food options

Like most of the Bangkok shopping malls the food choices are endless.

A side benefit apart from all the shops is being able to escape the Bangkok heat.

Hong Kong Roast

siam center bangkokHong Kong Roast duck is one of my favourite meals, that’s the beauty of Bangkok every cuisine in the world is available. Earlier this year I visited seven super cities all famous for food and I can honestly say Bangkok is as good as any of them.

Mr Jones Orphanage

siam center bangkokMr Jones Orphanage is a very unusual name for a restaurant, it gets good reviews on TripAdvisor.

Thanks for visiting my Siam Centre Bangkok photo blog.

When I’m in Bangkok I like to stay in Sukhumvit Soi 11, here is an excellent budget hotel, if you USE THIS LINK you will get a great rate of around B1100 per night, or $30 USD.
