The Two Best, Unique Bangkok Experiences for Creatives and Foodies
I always love getting away from the tourist crowds and exploring a city on my own terms. The best way to do so is usually by getting to know some of the locals and hearing their stories and recommendations.
Both unique, non-touristy Bangkok adventures I went on were made possible because of the places I stayed at.
The first recommendation I got from one of the staff members at The Cabochon. He must have got the right impression, as his first suggestion for what to do on a Friday in Bangkok was to visit Soi Nana.
Soi Nana is a creative street filled with unique bars, artist studios and cafes. It was exactly what I love. Creative vibes, lots of details, plenty of photo opportunities.
The next day I moved to Tailorbird, where Mai and Ming were keen to take me to one of the lesser-known floating markets Bangkok has to offer - Ladmayom.
Ladmayom Floating Market was a unique experience in and of itself, yet the boat ride to a couple of old, traditional Thai houses (at one of them they make fragrances out of flowers that grow outside the home), added to the uniqueness of the trip.
Have you got any unique, less well-known Bangkok recommendations for things to do and see? Share below, I’d love to hear.
