In Terminal 21 you fly across the world in one day! Every floor in Terminal 21 refers to a worldwide well known town. London, Paris, Tokyo, Istanbul, San Francisco and Rome are all represented here in the 6 floors of Terminal 21. The theme is visible in the decoration of the different departments and is even implemented in the toilets that are also worth a look. The signage (which you can use well) is shown as it is done at an airport, hence the name Terminal. Terminal 21 is worth a visit just for the special decorations!

Food Court Pier 21, quality and affordability
Terminal 21 is also famous for the Food Court Pier 21 on the fifth floor. Pier 21 is loved for its quality, wide choice and affordability of food. It is probably also the cheapest food court compared to other shopping malls because for a main course you pay around 50 baht. The prices even compete with those of the food stalls on the street and the nice clean restaurant with air conditioning you get for free. Food Court Pier 21 is also an ideal way to get acquainted with the local Thai dishes for when the food stalls on the street take you a step too far. Because this place is so popular you will sometimes have to wait for a table.
