The Dazzling Lights Of Istanbul At Terminal 21 Bangkok

Posted by : foongpc | Monday, April 2, 2012 | Published in


Welcome to Istanbul City! That's the signboard I saw on the third floor of Terminal 21 shopping mall in Bangkok.

After visiting the sumo wrestlers on the Tokyo (first) floor and the double-decker red bus on the London (second) floor, my friend and I proceeded to the Istanbul (third) floor.

The unique thing about this floor is the lights on the ceiling!

There were many lights of various shapes and designs.

There were many shops selling shoes and leather goods on this Istanbul-themed floor.

But as I walked around the shops, I could not help admiring the different lamps and lights at every alley.

Another set of beautiful lamps hanging from the ceiling with Middle Eastern design.

You might just think you are walking along a modern market street in Istanbul here.

Besides shoes and leather goods, there were also many shops selling accessories and jewelry.

However, I guess I was more interested in the beautiful lamps and lights of Istanbul City.

    haha, but not perfect enough huh, the shops are not related to Turkey at all.. they should be selling things from Turkish, or at least something that relates to Turkey right?? :)

    Khengsiong, of course the real Istanbul is better lah. If this one is as good as the real Istanbul, no one goes to Istanbul anymore! Haha!

    SK, the Istanbul theme is for decoration only, not the shops. So don't expect too much! LOL!

    Actually these things don't represent real Istanbul,not even close.That floor should be consist of Sultan Ahmet Mosque , Maidens's Tower, Bosphorus, Hagia Sophia or Bazaar not the Indian style lights. If you like the lights on the ceiling, you better see Sultan Ahmet's. Nothing compared to them
