2 S Sathorn Rd, Khwaeng Yan Nawa, Khet Sathon, Krung Thep Maha Nakhon 10120, Thailand
Nouveau French meets Thai at SO Sofitel Bangkok, which takes its design cues from the Chinese elements: Fire, Water, Earth, Metal, and Wood. The result is like being transported into a fashion shoot or the pages of a decor magazine. Each room and...

99 Wireless Rd Lumpini Khet Pathum Wan, Bangkok 10330, Thailand
Unusually for Thai restaurants in Bangkok, Osha is an import, having started life in San Francisco where it gained a reputation for seamlessly wedding modern culinary techniques to the age-old tenets of traditional Thai cooking. Now established at...

5/5 Ngam Duphli Alley, Khwaeng Thung Maha Mek, Khet Sathon, Krung Thep Maha Nakhon 10120, Thailand
This place could have been lifted from the big book of Chinese restaurant cliches. Stark lighting highlights every little blemish on your face, the wait staff are snarly and speak very little English and the kitchen wouldn't pass muster at any...

27/34 Soi Si Bamphen, Khwaeng Thung Maha Mek, Khet Sathon, Krung Thep Maha Nakhon 10120, Thailand
The undisputed king of Bangkok dive bars, Wong’s Place has a character of its own. It’s hard to describe exactly why you should go to this hole-in-the-wall institution near Lumphini Park. The furniture has seen better days, the toilets...

171 Sukhumvit 11 Khwaeng Khlong Toei Nuea, Khet Watthana, Krung Thep Maha Nakhon 10110, Thailand
[NOTE: CLOSED] A refreshing breath of beery, grungy air amidst Soi 11's selection of flashy nightspots and mobile drinks venues, Cheap Charlie's is a Bangkok fixture. Less a bar, more a drinks counter with a few rickety outdoor tables attached to...

158 Thanon Wang Doem, Khwaeng Wat Arun, Khet Bangkok Yai, Krung Thep Maha Nakhon 10600, Thailand
Wat Arun (Temple of Dawn) is a Buddhist temple in Bangkok's Yai district. It is situated on the west bank of the Chao Phraya River. The temple is one of the best known Thai landmarks. The mosaics which cover the temple create a pearly sheen during...

51 Sukhumvit Rd, Khwaeng Khlong Toei Nuea, Khet Watthana, Krung Thep Maha Nakhon 10110, Thailand
Bangkok, of course, is very much its own city. But New York districts, specifically Brooklyn, are exerting a strong influence in certain quarters. These Williamsburg stylings are, for the most part, mercifully unaffected with little of the...

499 ถนน กำแพงเพชร 6 Chatuchak, Khet Chatuchak, Krung Thep Maha Nakhon 10220, Thailand
MOCA (the Museum of Contemporary Art) makes a worthy detour from the center of Bangkok. The museum, which opened in 2012, is the brainchild of art-loving telecommunications billionaire Boonchai Bencharongkul, who envisaged it as the Thai...

99 Kamphaeng Phet 6 Rd, Khwaeng Talat Bang Khen, Khet Lak Si, Krung Thep Maha Nakhon 10210, Thailand
Although no longer located in its original spot next to an old train line, Talad Rot Fai (aka "train market") retains every bit of its hipster appeal. Open at the weekends, the market sells everything from retro clothing to vintage motorcycle...

714/4 Sukhumvit Rd, Khwaeng Khlong Tan, Khet Khlong Toei, Krung Thep Maha Nakhon 10110, Thailand
There’s no better place in Bangkok to browse for books than Dasa Book Café. While Kinokinuya (deservedly) holds sway in the malls, this cute seller is the pick among the city’s independent book retailers. The shop itself boasts around 17,000...

444 Phayathai Rd, Khwaeng Wang Mai, Khet Pathum Wan, Krung Thep Maha Nakhon 10330, Thailand
Bangkok rivals Singapore for the title of the region’s shopping capital, and its selection of malls offer amazing scope and variety. Old stagers (in Bangkok terms anyway) include the MBK Center. Arguably, the city’s most famous mall, MBK boasts...

21, 100 S Sathorn Rd, Khwaeng Thung Maha Mek, Khet Sathon, Krung Thep Maha Nakhon 10120, Thailand
Bangkok has become legendary for its rooftop bars. The Moon Bar at the Banyan Tree Hotel was one of the original elevated alfresco hot spots and its chilled ambience, comfortable seating and potent drinks mean it retains its cache. Oh yeah,...

Si Phraya, Bang Rak, Bangkok 10500, Thailand
After eating amazing dish after amazing dish, I knew I wanted to leave Thailand knowing how to bring some of the flavors I'd experienced into my own kitchen. Silom Thai Cooking School was the perfect place to do that. Gung, our teacher, was...

The wildly imaginative collections of Bangkok-raised Chalernkiat Khatikasemlert (nickname Pop) have attracted attention far beyond Thailand. His lines for men and women are colorful and striking and have a distinctly urban edge. Photo by Le...

Authentic Thai elements are to the fore at Tep Bar – a new venue in the old town. Housed in an atmospheric shophouse, the bar serves potent cocktails and home infused ya dong (Thai herbal whisky), while traditional musicians provide an atmospheric...

MahaNakhon CUBE 96 Naradhiwat Rajanagarindra Rd, Khwaeng Silom, Khet Bang Rak, Krung Thep Maha Nakhon 10500, Thailand
Located centrally in the MahaNakorn Cube in Sathorn, Vogue Lounge is one of the sleekest places in the city to unwind with an expertly mixed cocktail or three. Unique among Bangkok venues in that it places equal emphasis on food, drinks and...

Straddled over three floors in the upscale area of Thong Lor, Octave offers Asian-style tapas and fresh seafood paired with fine wines and bespoke cocktails. The venue’s chief calling card is its fabulous 360-degree views over the city,...

One of my favorite places to eat in Bangkok is the food court in the MBK building because it’s delicious and good for my solo traveler budget. It’s hidden on the sixth floor behind all the chain restaurants and vendor stalls. It’s a series of...
