Walking the IconSiam Super Mall with Neli.

in #travelfeed3 years ago

Today was the most perfect day for a walk in the big city of Bangkok were you never get bored there is always happy days sight seeing in Bangkok but today was even more exciting and special because i meeting up with a lovely Steemit friend who had come all the way from Bulgaria to visit her son who lives in Bangkok but also for a meet up with me and who might that be the only and only one the lovely @nelinoeva who most of you would know her posting gorgeous roses on Steemit all the time.


So i made my way to the BTS Skytrain over to the Sathorn pier on to the free shuttle that takes you across the Chaophraya river to the IconSiam Mall.


Upon arriving at the IconSiam mall i texted @nelinoeva that i had arrived she was already there in the mall but it wasn't long after we found each other and i was met by @nelinoeva her son and his girlfriend.


It is really nice to meet people face to face after many comments over Steemit and it was a real pleasure to see the lovely @nelinoeva in person. She had seen the mall for a few seconds and already she was in disbelief how sensational this mall looked she told me in two words "Mind Blowing" like all people that visit Thailand can't get over how beautiful everything is and how advanced in technology everything is.


We had decided on lunch cause everyone was hungry and it was so funny because we where all thinking Sushi and this was the mall with the best fresh Japanese Sushi you will get from anywhere else in Bangkok so i directed them to the best and tastiest sushi bar.


After energizing ourselves with that tasty sushi lunch which everyone approved , it was the best we started taking a wonder around this huge mother mall and the one thing i enjoy is seeing the expressions on new comers to Thailand and @nelinoeva expressions where just in awe all the way through.


Just a little information on the IconSiam Mall the IconSiam Massive Waterfront Megamall also now known as the "Mother of All Malls" opened up in November last year total cost to build this mall was 2.28 Billion US and has space of 525,000 square meters, it’s like putting 90 football field together so there was no way that @nelinoeva was going to be able to see it all in a few hours but we certainly covered a lot of space.


The whole of the first floor is just restaurants , coffee shops , all the best of the Thai foods you can imagine and all the best of the Japanese foods you can think of including all types of sushi's you can eat.


The IconSiam Shopping Mall consists of a massive 7 floors of shopping with outdoor podiums on 4th floor and 6th floor where you can sit enjoy the views have a cold beer , coffee , lunch or dinner and watch the world moving pass you.


I must say @nelinoeva had timed this trip well been close to Christmas a lot of the Christmas decorations go up normal mid November so it was a real pleasure for her to be seeing all these lovely colorful decorations and IconSiam had certainly put on a great show of ornaments and lighting.


Well the wonderful evening had come to a end @nelinoeva had to leave cause they had to home and pack they where of to another adventure going down south of Thailand the next morning early so we said our goodbyes and hugs i had been a great few hours spend with her and her son and girlfriend was really a pleasure to have met them all and she was still in shock seeing the beauty of this mall.


After saying our goodbyes as i was leaving the mall i heard a announcement from the loud speakers around the mall that there was going to be water fountain show i had never seen one here yet so i decided to stay and watch it i was in no hurry to get anywhere.


It was a shame that @nelinoeva could not have stayed longer she would of got to see this beautiful water fountain show and she would of been in more awe but i did sent her some photos and all she could say was ... WoW...WoW...maybe next time. I was in awe myself i couldn't stop clicking away i hope i haven't bored you to much with this water show but it was hard for me to choose....lol...i must have taken about 200 photos just loved it.


What a awesome way to end the day meeting great people and a fantastic water fountain show to finish of the evening and it was time to go home till another day we will met again. Thank you @nelinoeva it was lovely meeting you enjoy the rest of your stay in Thailand be safe and safe flight home :)

Fantastic post my dear friend. It was so lovely to meet you and now I realised we have not common picture. Silly me, I simply forgot.

Shame I missed the lights, but to see all one needs more a day. A week perhaps? That mall is massive. I am sure you will come back and show us more of it.

Thank you very much for your nice words 😀 I am so happy to know you!

Lol...me too we where to busy talking and forgot all about that never mind it was just great to meet you and pleasure to have spent some time with you...enjoy the rest of your stay in Thailand and looking forward to your posts on your adventurous in Thailand :)

The mall was really something!! Sadly I missed the waterfall outside!

Thank you @deerjay it was a enjoyable time with Neli unfortunately she couldn't stay for the water fountain show but she enjoyed looking at all my clicks...lol...then she wished she had stayed :(

You are welcome @hangin!! I know, I almost feel like I was there with all of your wonderful photos!! 💖

Cheers and thank you and maybe one day you can be...lol 👍

Hey!.... that must be exciting to meet a steemian who you only communicated with on the platform. Good job my friend. Hello @nelinova, enjoy your vacay, I am sure @hangin showed you very wonderful places in Bangkok.

It is really nice when you do meet them in person and it was a real fun time she's a lovely lady 🙂

Thank you my dear friend 😀

Most welcome my friend 🙂

You are welcome :)

I was there during the recent trip. It's a great place to go to chill out though I guess many things are not cheap buy local standard

Nice spot nice views and your right not cheap buy local standard although foods on first floor are very reasonable and tasty 👍

And wow!!! You got to meet @nelinoeva!! How lucky are you! I love that mall and you have shown me so many different shots of it, I swear I have been there! You know that?

You have said before that it was the very best place for sushi and I believe you! Nothing can beat that mall. Is that the one with the car dealership on the lower level?

You are the best, doing the meeting and greeting of all when they pass through Thailand. I hope I get my chance to meet you over there someday, sooner than later. This is absolutely the best kind of #MarketFriday post! I appreciate you using the tag and including me in the excitement.

The water show reminded me of the one they have in Las Vegas, I was in awe of it! Simply stunning.

Thanks again and as always, a profoundly awesome post! Have a great weekend and remember: #MarketFriday loves you!

It was really nice to meet @nelinoeva she was overwhelmed with the mall and we all loved the sushi.

Yes it is the one with several car dealerships the Benz , Rolls Royces , Porsches and so on and you are right they did turn into looking like Vegas that night.

And i assure you if you ever make it over here you will get the VIP treatment also ❤️

How exciting that you two got to meet up! I would have loved to see a photo of both of you together, but your photos of the mall are all fantastic!

It was really lovely to meet someone in person after only interacting on social media it was a real pleasure meeting @nelinoeva face to face and you know after we had left and said our goodbyes we both thought the same thing the next day no photos of us together we were to busy talking...lol 🤣

I do that often! I was just thinking that Thanksgiving would have been the perfect time for photos of me with the my grandkids...but I never thought of it while they were here. I guess we were too busy having fun!

Yep..i fully get it , it does happen but Neli did get a couple of shots of me with her son which was something...lol 🙂

It was so lovely to meet you @hangin and who knows may be next time we will have more time and we can have photos together.
