10 places in Bangkok where Bangkok people go

First of all, it is almost pointless to ask locals where to go. In 99% of cases, you will be sent to a plastic table in an alley near the ditch. There, of course, incredibly tasty, but not suitable for everyone.

Restaurant Casa Lapin

The Ari area is incredibly popular right now, with many shops, cafes and tiny restaurants opening up here. One of these is Casa Lapin. Cluttered in a good way, it attracts the surrounding fashionistas with excellent baking (a rarity for Thailand). Casa Lapin should be taken as a starting point when planning routes along neighboring streets. Many places appear completely suddenly and disappear just as quickly, so it makes no sense to list them.

Chatuchak Market



On weekends, it makes sense to go to the endless Chatuchak market for merry dresses and T-shirts for 100 baht. Even if you don’t need anything, looking at chickens painted in different colors is always a pleasure. In addition, there is a cafe where a Spaniard with a mustache Dali cooks paella in a huge frying pan.

Shopping center Terminal 21


By the way, the designers who grew up from Chatuchak are gathered in the huge shopping center Terminal 21. There is no market color, but it works every day, and not just on weekends.

Made by legacy



Although sometimes you can wait with purchases. The Made by legacy project brings together the Farang and Thais. Once a month, a company, in general, of people who are familiar with each other, gathers to fill the counters with Maoist things, curious second-hand and various crafts.

Horse racing



You will get no less adrenaline than a flea market at local races, the entrance costs about 60 baht, the Thais drink beer, make bets and scream very loudly when the race takes place.

Parks


In addition to the carousel of shops and temples with huge Buddhas, Bangkok has excellent parks. Many people know about Lumpini Park, as it is located in the center, and undeservedly call it the most beautiful and interesting park in Bangkok. Although Rama IX Park occupies a large territory, different sections represent examples of gardens of different countries: Chinese park, Japanese, English. You can spend all day here, but it is better to come in the afternoon or in the morning, so as not to fall under the scorching sun.

Koh Cret Island


Another way to hide from the city is a trip to the island of Koh Kret in the northern part of Bangkok, separated by a river. You can get to this place by river express. There are practically no cars there, many move on mopeds or bicycles. You can’t count on chic restaurants.

Bar Long Table


After a long day you can relax in the Long Table - in the bar with excellent views in the very center of the city. Usually, visitors go to the Baiyoke Sky restaurant, so there are almost no tourists in the Long Table. Here are excellent cocktails, which for Thais who are unable to mix even whiskey with cola is just nuclear physics.

So bangkok sofitel


Another fresh roof top is located at So Bangkok Sofitel. In general, if you live in Bangkok, then here, overlooking Lumpini Park, in a skyscraper full of modern Asian art.

Saxophone Pub


An alternative for the evening is the Saxophone Pub. Beer mugs in the form of (of course!) Saxophones and the best jazz groups.
