Entering the final days of March, one would think the city would settle down a little, especially after the intensity of last weeks’ elections. But, as usual, Bangkok never ceases to surprise — this time with a full week of happenings that you really won’t want to miss. Two of the most major events taking place include the inaugural King’s Cup Elephant Boat Race and River Festival, and the return of Bangkok International Fashion Week. On top of all that, the annual Clutter Sale for Charity is also making its comeback this weekend, promising treasures and rare finds that only come by once a year. With so much happening, if, by chance you want to catch them all, be sure to carefully check schedules and manage your time well — if you hustle, you just might make it to everything!

While it seems the weekend events are set to steal the show this week, there’s also quite a bit to look forward to as we gradually make our way there. Over at 80/20, chefs Joe and Saki are holding a unique collaboration dinner with leading Thai sommeliers, while The Sukhothai’s Celadon restaurant is making a pop-up at the picturesque Chakrabongse Villas. There is much to look forward to — scroll to see your plans for the week.
