To get to platinum mall, the easiest way is to take the train to Siam BTS station. After that, you can take the sky bridge to Central World and cut through the mall. Just exit from Isetan at level 1, walk out of the Central World compound, walk a few more minutes on the main road (follow the crowd!!!) and you'll get there! Do note that Central World only opens at 10am, so if you want to cut through Central World, you will have to get there after 10am! If not, you'll need to walk a whole big round in the heat!
A ticket from Asoke BTS station to Siam BTS station is about 28 baht per person.
Platinum Mall has 3 zones: Zone 1 & 2 are in the same building, Zone 3 is in a separate building, connected by a bridge on level 2 and a zebra crossing on level 1. I would recommend taking the lift from the top floor and working your way down at Zone 3, and then crossing over to Zone 1/2. At Zone 1/2, the top floor has an incredible food court. We decided to settle there for lunch!
PAD THAI GLASS NOODLES - stall P13
COCONUT ICE CREAM
2 scoops for 63 baht
2 scoops for SGD2.50
The coconut ice cream was amazing!! It was thick and flavourful, and ONLY 63 BAHT?!?!?! I still can't believe it. PLUS, the scoops are huge! These two scoops can easily be the same amount as 3-4 scoops in Singapore, and 1 scoop in Singapore already costs about $3+.
After awhile, we decided to explore zones 1 & 2! We bought about 15 pieces in total if I'm not wrong!! Everything there is just so cheap:P
One thing we noticed - if the shop doesn't state the price, it's usually expensive. When I have to ask for the price of clothes, I tend to find myself having to turn it down because it's always above 400 baht, which just isn't in my budget. We shopped for another 1-2 hours and decided to head home because our feet were killing us.
4 cheese balls = 60 baht (SGD2.40)
6 cheese balls = 90 baht (SGD3.50)
10 cheese balls + 1 free = 150 baht (SGD5.90)
I would suggest getting the smallest one if you're in a small group because the cheese balls are really filling! But they taste really good!:-) I got Butter & Milk, Original, Pizza, and Ham. In my opinion, Pizza and Butter & Milk were the best!
