Muay Thai Live: The Legend Lives

5 saves

Bangkok, Thailand • Memory • 

Some of the acting is a little hammy but the Muay Thai action is a lot of fun to watch in this stage show. Order tickets online for a big discount over the box office price. There is a nice night market at Asiatique to browse for souvenirs before or after the show.

Bangkok’s tallest building just opened a skywalk at the top. A little pricey (850 baht) but there is a terrifying looking “Glass Tray” glass floored section you can walk on from 314 meters up!

Bangkok, Thailand • Memory • 

The good thing about Bangkok is that whether you are in the street or in a fancy mall, you are never far from great Thai food. If you have been shopping at CentralWorld, Kalpapreuk on the 7th floor offers home style Thai dishes at reasonable prices. The crispy pork is recommended!

Bombyx - Jim Thompson Restaurant

2 saves

Bangkok, Thailand • Memory • 

Jim Thompson is best known for selling stylish Thai silk products, but they have also branched out into food. Next to their shop at Siam Paragon is this new restaurant, serving upmarket Thai dishes. It's pricey although you can get a 50% discount off food at off-peak hours if you use the "Eatigo" app. The crab cakes with mango were pretty good, and the padang style beef curry with Australian beef was excellent. The decor is very chic, with black and green accents and hexagonal tables and coasters. Pretty quiet when we went at 2pm on a Saturday. A decent Thai option in the mall.

Som Tam Khun Kan

Bangkok, Thailand • Recommendation • 

Famous for its som tam (payaya salad) but a large menu includes many other dishes especially from the issan region. Excellent fish and mango and sticky rice. A bit far from the bts to walk so hop a taxi. there's a popular outdoor beer garden. Proudly claims to be listed in the Michelin guide and to hold a Guinness World Record for the largest Mango Sticky Rice!

Mandarin Oriental Shop Emporium

Bangkok, Thailand • Memory • 

I probably won't be able to afford a stay at the Mandarin Oriental hotel anytime soon, so the next best thing is to go to the bakery at Emporium where you can pick up a Rosemary Foccacia loaf for only 100 baht! They also do good croissants, pain au chocolat and quiche.
