LOOK: Starbucks Opens Its Largest Store In Bangkok, Thailand
It has a panoramic view of the famous Chao Phraya River.
Planning¬†a future trip to¬†Thailand? Make sure to drop by the largest Starbucks store in the country:¬†Starbucks Chao Phraya Riverfront.¬†Opened¬†in February 2021, this¬†is the coffee chain's 417th store in Thailand which has the 12th Reserve Bar¬†and the first-ever Teavana Bar.
Besides the fact that Starbucks Chao Phraya Riverfront is the current titleholder of the largest store in Thailand, there are so many reasons you should pay a visit. First, this store offers a panoramic view of the famous 372 kilometer-long Chao Phraya River that flows through Bangkok.¬†
Another reason¬†why you should visit the Starbucks Chao Phraya Riverfront is that this two-story store highlights murals made by local artists in Asia. There's a colorful mural depicting Thai coffee farming landscapes and Bangkok landmarks and the Starbucks Reserve Bar has a wood-carved mural that¬†pays homage to the traditional art of Thai wood carving.
The staircase has a coffee tree from Northern Thailand at the center, and it transforms itself into a compass to show the bean-to-cup journey. Once you've ascended to the mezzanine floor, you can take photos in front of a colorful artwork depicting the coffee flavor wheel.
Of course, The Starbucks Chao Phraya Riverfront is¬†more than just a beautiful structure. This is the first-ever store that served a special coffee drink called Muan Jai Blend (translates to "wholehearted happiness"), which was made in partnership with Northern Thai coffee farming communities. For every Muan Jai cup ordered in-store, Starbucks will donate 10 baht to these farming communities.
According to Starbucks,¬†the Starbucks Chao Phraya Riverfront¬†can let customers immerse themselves in a hands-on tea experience at the Teavana Bar. You can explore the different flavors of tea through their beverages like the Lychee Earl Grey Tea and Peach Mojito. Once you've chosen your beverage, you can pair it with their freshly-baked artisanal pastries or their signature desserts with ice cream.¬†
The Starbucks Chao Phraya Riverfront is located on the 7th floor of the ICONSIAM. The ICONSIAM building is located at 299 Charoen Nakhon Road, Khlong Ton Sai, Khlong San, Bangkok, Thailand.
