This summer, Starbucks introducing its coffee shops to new locations in the China/Asia Pacific region, Starbucks recently opened stores in Bangkok (shown), China’s inaugural Disneyland and the Philippines, including local art to enhance the customer experience. Along walls of the Gaysorn shopping mall Starbucks in Bangkok, a mural created by local artist Jentee Baiposuwan depicts the brand’s recognizable Siren emblem and smaller murals within the store capture landscapes that tell the stories of single-origin coffees and farmers.

This store opening originally appeared in the October 2016 issue of VMSD in the "On Our Radar" section.
