The past week has been an incredibly hectic one for Bangkok dwellers, with Bangkok International Fashion Week, the inaugural King’s Cup Elephant Boat Race and River Festival, and the return of the Clutter Sale. After all that, thankfully we get some time to cool off and take it easy this week before launching into the water-splashing and all-night parties of Songkran season. On the agenda are a couple of independent art exhibitions to check out, including a solo exhibition by Orn Thongthai. On the gourmet scene, keep your schedules free for some wine-pairing with a twist — where dishes are created to complement wines rather than vice versa. As for automobile lovers, the 40th Bangkok International Motor Show ends this week, so be sure to drop by if you haven’t already!
