In Bangkok I had a day of shopping, and where better to spend it than the enormous shopping malls? Many of them are lined up on the same street (very close to my hotel, more about that later), so it makes for an easy shopping spree.

I stopped by the Central Embassy shopping mall, housing everything from Proenza Schouler, Saint Laurent and Chanel to Sephora. When I got to the 5th floor, I was in desperate need of a coffee break, and then I found Rocket.

They definitely know how to serve a decent cup of coffee, but it doesn’t stop there. It’s a shame I wasn’t hungry, because everything on the menu looked good; salads, sandwiches, juices, smoothies, granola, eggs and cakes. They have it all, and they even do a bottled ice coffee to take home.

A good coffee with a view of the Bangkok skyline, what more can you ask for?
