New mall 'SHOW DC' opens with durian room and shower for tourists

Another new shopping mall, SHOW DC, recently opened their doors near RCA. They hope to serve as the city’s tourist hub by offering basic facilities that all travelers need — such as a shower.

Located 30 minutes from Suvarnabhumi, SHOW DC will soon offer shuttle buses from the airport, Petchaburi MRT station and other attractions in the city. With its goal to become “Bangkok Tourist Terminal,” it offers a shower room, a courier service counter, a prayer room, a tourist police center, travel agents counters and a tourist information center with multi-language assistants.

Meanwhile, to please Thai travelers, its “K-District” on the first floor boasts the world’s biggest Koreatown with all things Korean such as street fashion, cosmetics, lifestyle products, groceries, cafes and restaurants owned by K-Pop artists. This is an attempt to give customers that they are shopping in one of Seoul’s shopping destinations like Myeong Dong.

For the first time in Thailand, Lotte Duty Free will also open at the mall, occupying two whole floors.

In the Thai Market, you will be able to find the best products from all regions of the country. There's even a room for you to buy and eat durian so you don’t have to worry about the smell bothering other shoppers.

The mall is located on a 14-rai parcel (68,800 sq.m.) on Jaturatid Road, Huai Khwang. While some features have not opened yet, the mall will have its soft opening on Jan. 22.
