Bangkok is one of the best shopping havens in the world. But if you’re the kind of person who flies there 3 to 4 times a year, it does get pretty sian after some time.
Thankfully, a new mall just opened in Bangkok right next to Platinum Mall on last Thursday (14 Feb), and has everything you’d expect in a shopping complex, from blogshops to cafés and even massage parlours.
Whether you’re seeking an adrenaline rush or a breezy fun time with your family, SkyTropolis is the one-stop destination for the young and the young at heart.
And the best thing is, it’s inside a mall, so you can do all your shopping and eating there. Yup, we didn’t forget about you, mum.
Ticket prices haven’t been released yet but with the exchange rate, we doubt you’ll have much to worry about it.
Be sure to include SkyTropolis in your itinerary when you plan your family vacation to Genting Highlands!
Location: First World Hotel & Plaza, 69000 Genting Highlands, Pahang, Malaysia Opening hours: 10am-12am How to get there: WTS travel provides coaches directly from Singapore. Pick-up locations include Tampines, Sengkang, Bedok, Ang Mo Kio, Sembawang and Woodlands.
As for purchasing stuff within the retail sections, you won’t actually have to use cash anymore. All you need apparently is their app, to make purchases & receive recommendations for deals you’ll be interested in.
