Muay Thai Live: The Legend Lives

Bangkok, Thailand • Memory • a year ago

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.

lebua at State Tower

King Power MahaNakhon

คิง เพาเวอร์ มหานคร

Bangkok, Thailand • Wishlist • 10 months ago

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 • a year ago

A fancy food court in the basement of Central Embassy mall. If you want to try a lot of different Thai food including street food while remaining fully air conditioned, this is the place!

Kalpapreuk Restaurant - Central World

Bangkok, Thailand • Memory • 9 months ago

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

Bangkok, Thailand • Memory • 8 months ago

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.

Khua Kling Pak Sod (Thonglor)

Bangkok, Thailand • Wishlist • 10 months ago

Finally made it here for a date night, just a few neonates from my house off Thong Lor. Authentic and spicy southern Thai cuisine. They take credit cards now. The crab curry is excellent.

As it has just won a Michelin star, I can officially say I went there before it was cool! With 6 or 9 course tasting menus, all impeccably presented, and very friendly service, it’s a great date place.

Summer Bowl BKK

Bangkok, Thailand • Memory • 8 months ago

Set up by a Thai/Hawaiian couple, this tiny cafe in the Thong Lor backstreets sells açaí bowls, smoothies and cold press juices. As usual in Thailand, it’s a bit unclear why you need four members of staff behind the counter, but service is very friendly :)

Som Tam Khun Kan


Bangkok, Thailand • Recommendation • 6 months ago

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!

Did you know Neapolitan style pizza is recognized as a UNESCO intangible cultural landmark? Nor did I until I read the menu at Peppina. High quality imported ingredients make for fresh and tasty pizzas!

Mandarin Oriental Shop Emporium

Bangkok, Thailand • Memory • 2 months ago

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.
