New Activity to do in Bangkok 2020

16 December 2019

Looking for something new to do in Bangkok. This is the article you should continue reading

Like i said, Bangkok is like my second home. It is always my favourite destination for a short getaway. Of course, for someone who is visit Bangkok for the first time, I know a few places that first time travelers should visit. But for a person who visited Bangkok more than 10 times like me, this article is something that i recommend to do besides visiting the mainstream attractions. 

First of all, ICON SIAM
Bangkok’s newest shopping mall! A mall like no others.
There is a LEGIT floating market and night market inside the shopping mall.
My trip to Bangkok is quite rush this time, so i don’t have much time to visit the night market. But i did it here in Icon Siam. It is much better than the REAL night market cause this one is with air con. Of course, all the street food is more clean and hygiene here. The food quality is good and the price is affordable too. 

Well,This was definitely our favourite part of IconSiam!
SookSiam is an indoor “floating market” that sells a huge variety of traditional Thai street food. Designed in the style of a simulated floating market with street vendors along the “riverbanks”, SookSiam aims to promote the cuisine, arts and culture of Thailand’s 77 provinces.  


Located along Chao Phraya River ( Around 6km from Central World, but the jam was crazy. Took us an hour to reach there), But trust me. It is all worth it! IconSiam comprises an estimated 500 shops, 100 restaurants, an indoor floating market, Thailand’s first Apple Store, Takashimaya, a state of the art cinema, a beautiful riverside park, and more! Every brand you can think of, they have it there!

I must say, this mall is really AMAZING.
Definitely something to visit when you are in Bangkok. 

#2 La Zensa Spa
Looking for a good relaxation after a shopping spree?
One of the best things to do in Bangkok is go for a SPA. 

So i found this newly opened SPA in EKKAMAI, it is a hidden gems.
Each of the spa rooms has different themes. For example like Cappadocia Cave Suites, Santorini, Japanese style and many more. The one we went is Cave Suites, it is totally amazing


We took a 90 min Thai Massage ( Private Room) which costs around 1200baht per pax

#3 DRINK & PAINT AT PAINT BAR
Can't think of anything else you can do in Bangkok at night? 
Here are something you can experience beside bar hopping and shopping. 

I enjoyed this very much. This is my very first time painting in my life! Basically, you can go and paint without having to have any painting skills. They have a set of paintings for you to choose as your model and you can modify the colors or items in the painting however you’d like. 

There are teachers there to help you so surely, you bring home a really nice painting you can be proud of. Food and drinks are available too. What can be better than that?

The price is 799 baht per pax

#4 DINE IN A THEMED RESTAURANT 
This Restaurant is truly a DREAM to me! I always wanted to sit on a Oriental Express.
But it is too expensive to go. Once i found this restaurant, i decided to pay a visit!
I really LOVE its luxurious Gatsby-esque design and the Oriental Express vibes.
I love! Every corner of this restaurant is amazing

#5 JOIN A THAI COOKING CLASS

While you're on vacation, why not enjoy a quick Thai Cooking Class. Joining a Thai cooking class is so much fun. Also, it's a great way to learn the culture and traditions in the country you visit. Thank you DoubleTree by Hilton for arranging this. We enjoyed it very much! 
For a person who enjoy cooking like me is totally exciting. I managed to learn how to make SOMTUM(Thai traditional salad), TOMYUM GUNG, and also RICE ROLL! 

Achievement unlocked! Even better cause i did it with my fiancé.


# WHERE WE STAY
This round, we spent our 4D3N at the newly opened hotel - Doubletree by Hilton Ploenchit
A 5 stars hotel located at the heart of Bangkok. just 35 minutes from Suvarnabhumi Airport and Don Mueang International Airport. Very near to Thonglor area, very near to all the nice cafes, restaurants and bar that i saved in my bucket list. 

There are Savor local and international favorites at OPEN, all-day-dining restaurant or relax with a drink at OPEN Bar. A touch of contemporary design. The food here is pretty amazing. Especially the yellow crab curry. For drinks, remember to order “I’m on diet” (beetroot juice) and the Thai Milk Tea! 
The breakfast was good too! A lot of choices.
If you need some privacy, you can also order the in room breakfast which will deliver to your room.

The hotel are very clean, the room are clean too. 
Not to mention, the bed a super comfortable to sleep 





Overall, I enjoyed my stay in this hotel very much. The staff are super friendly. Most importantly the room are clean, the bed are very comfortable. The location are good too! It is easy to get around. 7 min walk to Ploenchit BTS station from the hotel. Thank you DoubleTree by Hilton for the great hospitality! Can’t wait to go back to Bangkok again.
