[Bangkok] EmQuartier is the latest must-visit mall in Bangkok, superbly designed with a futuristic facade, containing A LOT of food choices.
The mall is split up into three zones – The Glass Quartier, The Waterfall Quartier and The Helix Quartier, all connected by several walkways. It can be confusing at first, but makes sense after some orientation.
The upper levels of Helix Quarter where most of the restaurants are contained, boosting of a round walkway, atrium garden complete with waterfall.
So what you do is walk rounds to have a look at the food selection, without the need to climb stairs. The elevators can be too packed and slowed though.
Many of Bangkok’s well-loved restaurants have set up a branch here, with some new-to-market brands, making The EM District the one-stop-place for some of the best mid-end restaurants.
Plus, the mall can be conveniently accessed from Phrom Phong BTS Skytrain with a link to the original Emporium mall just across the road.
Compared to the other popular Siam Paragon, I would say the crowd here tends to be slightly older, more towards the working class, and seems to have higher spending power.
