We went to the nicest movie theater in the world... based on my experiences. Bangkok is known for its high tech movie theaters and the Siam Paragon may be among the nicest. Seating is assigned and there are several types to choose from. Leather massage chairs, private viewing boxes, and luxury lounges are all offered. Going to the movies here appears to be a big deal. About $4 gets you the lowest level of seating with a reclining leather seat and large armrests. $1 buys a Coke light in a can.

After the movie you can head downstairs to buy a Ferrari, Lamborghini, then maybe some Jimmy Choo shoes, and a Versace suit. (all real brands and all real prices) And if the Paragon doesn't have what you are after there are several more shopping centers just like this within walking distance with every designer shop you could imagine. And if you don't have $30,000 to spend on a watch you can walk outside and buy a nice copy for $20.

Sean will love your post about the movie theater being the "best in your experience." Have you seen any high-end cars on the streets? It seems like everyone rides motorcycles.
