Get Bangkok Bound this Spring
Bangkok is so close, and with flights from Singapore to Bangkok getting ever cheaper, even if you have already been twice, it’s always worth another visit. More low cost airlines are flying hungry travellers to the capitol of Thailand such as Tiger from $165 for a return flight and Cathay Pacific from $231. CheapTickets.sg is currently having a Spring flight sale to Bangkok and other destinations in the region, book now the best prices.
Bangkok is famous for its temples, tuk tuks and ‘interesting’ night life but as the city modernises more each day new and exciting distractions are evolving city wide.
As the city sky scrapers get higher, so do the bars. Join the trendy set of Bangkok in supping on fabulous cocktails whilst getting a welcome breeze- the higher the better! My favourite is The Sky Bar at The Lebua at State Hotel– after its rise to fame from the second Hangover film you won’t be allowed to recreate the movie scene by posing on the steps you will be able to bask under the glow of the golden dome whilst gazing down on the city below. Due to its popularity it can be very crowded, especially at the weekends. If you prefer more of a chill out, book a table at the Vertigo and Moon Bar at The Banyan Tree Hotel where I recommend ordering the Vertigo Sunset cocktail , a refreshing concoction of Malibu, Pineapple, Cranberry and Lime Juice.
A weekend morning at Chatuchak Market is always a must for Bangkok visitors but if you have been several times make a bee line for section 3, where all the local designers have set up their hub. You can pick out unique items from their constantly changing collections to bring back. If art is your guilty pleasure then head for Chatuchak Park side of the market, the art gallery section is concentrated directly to the right of entrance gate 2 in section 7. There is something special about visiting local and international artists in this unique setting whilst viewing and maybe bringing one of their pieces home as a memory of your trip.
If late nights and hedonism are not you’re calling you can learn to take some Thai healing powers home with you on your journey by training at the Wat Pho Thai Traditional Medical School. Based at the central temple you can learn the art of traditional massage. Courses start from 30 hours over the course of 5 days and cost from $7500 Baht. For more information log on to this. To help you finish your spiritual journey the World of fellowship of Buddhists monks give meditation talks in English on the first Sunday of the month in Bangkok.
