Prestige Planner: Best Things to do at Home This Week (August 30 – September 5)

From antique auctions and virtual boutiques, to fitness sessions and art exhibitions – here is a list of the virtual and live events you can partake in this week.

Premier antiques and art auction house River City Bangkok Auctions (RCB Auctions) ensure that you can still feel the exhilaration of an auction and add valued artefacts to your collection from the comfort of your own home.

For decades now, RCB Auctions has put some of the finest Southeast Asian antiquities under the hammer, and this season is putting up a series of decorative items up for a timed auction. Highlights from this auction include a Benjarong spoon painted with a Theppanom image, Benjarong teacups dating back to the 19th century, and an assemblage of porcelain items replenished with historical fact. The online event runs from this week until Sunday 12 September.

Whilst malls are re-opening this week, if you’re still not ready to brave the outdoors yet, how about visiting a virtual boutique instead? Grand Seiko has launched its first virtual boutique this month, allowing visitors to check out the new and previous collections through innovative features on their website. These are presented through videos, 360-degree viewing, and interactive 3D features. Better yet, it’s open to visit 24 hours a day.
