The best events to catch in Bangkok this week, including a film screening about the life of Vincent Van Gogh, and the return of Hospitality Night at Hemmingway’s.
As we enter yet another drizzly week, Bangkok is proving to be far from boring, as the city buzzes with happenings. On the bright side, this week falls on a long weekend, giving us some time to perhaps rest, and reflect on the things that are taking place all around us. For those looking to get away through other, perhaps more inspiring mediums, we’ve rounded up the best events to catch this week.
