As I got off the BTS at Asok station, a large shopping mall loomed in front of me. The shopping mall must be air-conditioned. So I rushed inside. Bangkok is hot and humid as usual. It was nice to have a place to cool off here and there.
This shopping mall was called Terminal 21. The name "terminal" suggests an airport or harbor, and the images on each floor were consistent with famous foreign cities such as Paris, Rome, Tokyo, and San Francisco. I suppose that this kind of shopping mall was built because Thai people, like people from other countries, love to travel. Incidentally, the number of Thai visitors to Japan exceeded 90,000 in 2019. It is the sixth most visited country after the United States.
As I walked inside, I came to an atrium. I looked down to the floor below and saw that a lighthouse had been erected. Not many people travel abroad by boat in these days. Even so, a lighthouse standing in a harbor is still a reminder of setting sail into the unknown.
