Good news for those with nine-to-fives — Tuesday is a public holiday! Referred to as Makha Bucha, the religious holiday is considered the second most important Buddhist festival after Visakah Bucha. Typically, no alcohol will be served on this day, but you can still enjoy your day-off by keeping up with all the things to do in Bangkok.
Tuesday might be alcohol free, but that doesn’t mean you won’t be drinking at all this week. In fact, with the exception of Tuesday, we see quite a lot of wine-related events happening in town. From a unique dinner with sustainable wines and Thai-Teochew cuisine to the return of Bangkok Wine Expo, there’s quite a lot to look forward to on the ‘Where to Drink’ front. The newly founded — but already quite impressive — Mangosteen Music Festival also makes a comeback, with a lineup featuring Kodaline, Phum Viphurit and British synth-pop band Fickle Friends. Scroll to see your plans for the week!
