Bangkok seems insatiable when it comes to shopping malls! You can never have enough shops must have been the thought when The EmQuartier was added to the list of shopping malls in Bangkok in 2015.
Unique water garden, not to be missed!
At first glance EmQuartier might seem a bit sterile, white glossy floors, high glass walls and shop windows that promote luxury brands like Prada, Armani and Gucci. It can’t be denied that EmQuartier is a luxury shopping mall and that it radiates that as well. If you don’t have a fat wallet, this can make you decide to turn around again. But when you go a few floors higher you will see that the more affordable brands and shops like Zara Home, H&M and SuperDry are also represented here. In addition, EmQuartier has a very nice cinema (Cine-Art) and a unique water garden (Helix Quarter) which you really should have seen!
Water Quartier, a jungle in a shopping mall!
Water Quartier is a piece of jungle in the middle of a shopping mall! Complete with elevated terraces, waterfalls, fountains and of course lots of plants. Extra special is that the garden is not completely enclosed, in some places there is only a low glass balustrade, the warm wind of Bangkok makes the tropical garden feeling complete! The view over the concrete jungle of Bangkok makes it extra special. You will find Water Quartier on the 5th floor of EmQuartier.
Entertainment for kids, Urban Adventure Rope Course
Children from the age of four can climb and clamber on the platforms in the Urban Adventure Rope Course behind the Water Quarter. There is a zipline for children between 4 and 7 and a zipline for children from 8 years old. Cost 250 baht and open from 11.00 to 22.00.
N.B. It is not sure if this is a permanent attraction, so do not promise anything to the children to avoid disappointment or contact them for information by mail: email@example.com or by phone via 0066 84 462 3003.
Quartier Food Hall, cheap and tasty food
In the basement (B1) you will find the affordable Quartier Food Hall with a wide choice of French, Thai, Chinese and Western meals (McDonalds, KFC and Burger King). One side of the food hall is even entirely dedicated to desserts! The price of a main course is between 80 and 250 baht. If you don’t have to mind your budget, the upper floors of Helix Quartier are also an interesting option to get something to eat.
Helix Quartier, eating in style
From the 6th to the 9th floor you will find Helix Quartier. Here are 3 floors full of stylish and luxurious restaurants. There is a wide variety of restaurants such as Mexican, Chinese and Japanese food. There is also a luxury bakery with delicious sandwiches and other (sweet) delicacies. The floors are entirely in line with Water Quartier and decorated with plants in a particularly beautiful way. Here you can eat in (jungle) style!
Quartier Cine-Art, A Major Cineplex experience
Just watching a movie seems to be a thing of the past in Bangkok, as it is in this cinema. There are 4 types of cinema experiences to choose from. The cinema can be found on the 4th floor of the EmQuartier shopping mall.
True Screen X cinema
Here you don’t look at one screen but at three, which gives you a 270-degree view. The nine projectors ensure that the image remains sharp. Ticket 350 baht or 800 baht per couple for a double sofa.
Watching a movie from a chair is obviously much too common, here you can watch a movie from lounge chairs or sofas with a blanket (because of the air conditioning). This cinema promises a 20 times brighter picture than you are used to from a normal cinema. A dinner before the movie is also one of the possibilities. Tickets cost 1,000 baht per person or 1,800 baht per couple.
