    Starbucks in Thailand



    My local Starbucks in Bangkok! – in Sukhumvit, at the end of the road where my hotel was situated.




    This Starbucks was on the main road Rama I on the BTS “Skytrain” route, past the Erawan shrine in the direction of Siam Square to judge from my sequence of photographs.




    I saw this one and grabbed a photo while on a tour bus. We were picking up people from various hotels during the busy morning traffic, so the location is very vague. It appears to be just the side of the building, but I don’t think it is a branch that features elsewhere in my collection– anyway I am going to include it in my Starbucks count!

      Those of you who followed Pakarang’s posts during the time he was living in Bangkok will remember that he liked to hang out in Starbucks in Siam Paragon Mall, but you may not have realised that as well as the one on the 5th floor there are actually other Starbucks in this building. So why the 5th floor? – well, the other attraction on the 5th floor is the cinema complex!

        I can't say for sure where the two first ones are but the third one is definitely the one at the first floor of BIG C Superstore Ratchadamri, just opposite from Central World Pattana.... I would guess a mere 400 meters from where I lived!

          I am not going to be specific about the floor levels at which I found other Starbucks within the complex layout of Siam Paragon –some floors have mezzazine levels to further confuse, and I confess I did not make specific notes. If I was forced to say, I’d go for the 3rd floor for this one.



          Ground floor probably . . .


          . . . and this view of yet another Starbucks supports my recollection of 2nd floor.


          Here’s another view of it.

            At the end of my journey in Thailand I reached Chiang Mai. Taking a stroll from my hotel to the nearby night market, I came across what might be described as a more westernised area with a English Red Lion pub and restaurant facing a German Hofbräuhaus, a McDonalds, and of course Starbucks!



            Next day, en route to visit some temples in the old part of the city, I passed another Starbucks, multi-level in a rather attractive corner building.

              Finally, as I made a connecting flight at Suvarnabhumi Airport Bangkok, I saw this Starbucks., making it a total of 11 for the entire trip.
              ............................................

              So my all-time total Starbucks Score has risen to 32.
              And, my dear Captain, in case you were wondering . . . YES I actually went in Siam Paragon floor 5 and cooled down with an iced Mocha Frappuccino!!!!!!!!!!!!

                Yes, that is MY FAVORITE Starbucks... for many reasons: firstly as you say, the location of the best cinema-complex in Bangkok, and because it's just above my gym, which was located down the escalators on 4th floor.

                My friends at that very same branch:

                          Let me make it even worse . . .
                          I had to go across to Glasgow last week, and just happened to walk past THREE branches of Starbucks!
                          If I’d been on my own and had more time they might have been more “photo thought about” than just hurriedly snapped, but they’ll do to increase my Starbucks count to 35!
