    Songkran splash

    Guru, Published on 12/04/2019

    » While many of you are most likely out of the city for the New Year holidays, we cooked up a fun diversion that hopefully depicts the many situations of how you would be celebrating Songkran in the city with our somewhat linear mini Choose-Your-Own-Adventure-style game. Would you party at one of the many (and we mean many) festivals around or are you the type who will brave the crowds on the streets and spray water at passersby? Happy holidays!Rise and shine! Wannee pen wan Songkran! Things are about to get super soaked and you need to get ready. Do you have all the necessary equipment (sunglasses, phone bag, water gun, yadom, etc.) to start your wet n wild festivities?

    Nothing bitter about this man

    Guru, Nianne-Lynn Hendricks, Published on 06/07/2018

    » Bitterman, on Sala Daeng Soi 1, is a 40-year-old house complete with an atrium, full of plants. The restaurant also has leather chairs and tables inside. But since sitting outside in Bangkok is rare, the glass house is by far the most popular, especially during dinner and at weekends when brunch is served. It is also the best spot to be in the afternoon while the warm sun bathes you through the glass, which makes you forget you're in Bangkok for a wee bit. "Even though the concept of the restaurant is home cooking, I think it's a tad boring so I have changed the way we present the food. The best way to describe my menu is simple and sexy," laughs chef de la cuisine Enzo Dela Cruz.

    Revelations in Convent

    Life, Vanniya Sriangura, Published on 19/01/2018

    » Soi Convent has a strange pull. Crawling with office workers by day, it welcomes drinkers and diners by night. At one end is a cloistered convent protected by high walls, at the other a hospital and a church, and in between a motley selection of an Irish pub, street stalls, cafés, bars, dessert shops, dining venues, a som tam joint and an all-girls school. Flanked by the gaudy lights of Patpong and the business-minded Sathorn, the 800m soi in the busy financial district has a discreet but unfailing, perennial charm.

    How did it start?

    Life, Published on 09/02/2017

    » It's hard to say who was the first tourist in Siam, because tourism as we know it didn't exist until a few centuries ago. Indian merchants sailed here in the 5th century, the Chinese came to trade and later to settle, and one of the earliest European travellers were the Portuguese, arriving in Ayutthaya in 1511. In 1680, Ibn Muhammad Ibrahim, a Persian, visited the land and recorded his impressions -- "All around us were trees that never feel the withering touch of autumn" -- while the first guidebook to the Kingdom was written by local resident J. Antonio in 1904. (Its most highly recommended activity is the shooting of birds and mammals.)
