“Photogenic” car park at BKK shopping mall


Photo spots help businesses draw the attention of customers, which explain the numerous IG-worthy spots around BKK. So, this shopping mall in Bangkok came up with an idea to transform their car park into a photogenic backdrop for Instagrammers. 

Their car park finally went viral not for its photogenic look but for its design that looks just like a love motel.

Most love hotels in Thailand come with a curtain at the front, a car park, and a fancy-looking room. For Thais, this type of motels are specifically for secret rendezvous.  Love motel car park

You might not expect to see this kind of a setting in a shopping mall car park for sure, but this picture was captured at Seacon Square, a shopping mall along Srinakarin Road in Bangkok. 

The car park has a hot pink wall with cupid and heart paintings that reminded shoppers of no-tell motels.

Shoppers were surprised and confused about what this “love car park” was for. So, there was a netizen asking the shopping mall for more details and found out that this was aimed to be a photo backdrop for customers.
