We didn’t think it was possible, but it was — Bangkok has gotten even hotter. With temperatures hitting 37°C and above (according to Apple Weather, but it feels over 40°C), now would be a great time to celebrate Songkran all over again. While that’s a little unrealistic as far as expectations go, we thankfully have an alternative just as good this week — a pool party! Courtesy of W Hotel and Bangkok Invaders, Beats by the Pool is set to take place this coming Saturday, so mark your calendars.

In other news, Central Embassy is ringing in its fifth anniversary and — as only to be expected of the luxury mall — celebrations are big. New York-based Snarkitecture has been commissioned to turn the ground floor into a massive, bouncy-castle esque forest of large, bobbling cones. Perfect for Instagram, and also quite a fun bit of play to add to your week. If you’re looking for something food-related, The Commons is hosting an interesting workshop on how to make Japanese vegan delights — whether or not you personally are vegan, it’s always nice to learn how to make healthy dishes, and it wouldn’t hurt to have some vegan recipes in your repertoire. There’s also the return of Shorties Film Festival, as well as a few exhibitions taking place across town to keep you occupied — scroll to see your plans for the week!
