City dwellers, we’re back with our roundup of best things to do in Bangkok this week. If you missed Made By Legacy at The Princess’s Cup Thailand 2018, you’re in luck—the hip flea market is making a comeback this week, with its 10th edition taking place at the old Sermsuk Warehouse. With over 200 vendors giving you anything and everything from vintage goods to designer brands, get ready to indulge your inner shopaholic.
In the art and culture scene, be sure not to miss the duo exhibition by Dutch artists Niels Kalk and Marga van den Meydenberg at Yelo House, or Thai artist Kawita Vatanajyankur’s first ever live performance at The Peninsula Hotel Bangkok. New England based indie group Superorganism makes a stop at Bangkok before their Coachella appearance. If you prefer the classical route, you can also book yourself a seat at The Six & Sax Duo’s mini concert at River City Bangkok. With so much happening, this isn’t a week to be staying in. Scroll to see your plans!
