The best events to catch in Bangkok this week, including a giveaway for luxurious travel experiences in Thailand, and an immersive exhibition that aims to help you rediscover the meaning of life.
Perhaps it’s because the year is drawing to a close, but Bangkok seems to have taken a retrospective turn this week, and events too are taking a rather thought-provoking turn. AP Thailand, for instance, has launched an exhibition in response to the Covid-19 pandemic, with the aim of encouraging and inspiring visitors by helping them rediscover themselves. At the same time, Artist+Run is hosting a rather fascinating exhibition, bringing together the work of three renowned, Thai-based landscape artists, for a resulting show of art that encourages one to take a minute and appreciate the surrounding nature. Scroll to see your plans!
AP House of Purpose
ART & CULTURE — In an effort to encourage and inspire, AP Thailand hosts a special exhibition, where the visitors themselves are the art. Offering a journey of self discovery, guests are invited into a space especially curated to reinvigorate their lives, by letting them rediscover themselves through the five senses. The result of a collaboration between AP Thailand and Very Kind Invention, visitors go through five different zones, from the ‘Gauge Yourself’ room, which represents yourself today, to ‘A Peek into Dreamland’, which helps you find inspiration for your future lifestyle, the ‘Unpredictable cafe’ where you can have fun with unexpected experience, the ‘Rest, In Peace’ room which encourages you to question how you want to be viewed, and finally the ‘Diagnose Me’ room, where you can receive an analysis on all your results from the AP House of Purpose.
10:30am – 9pm, until November 15. Warehouse 30. To find out more, visit apthai.com.

A Trail at the End of the World
ART & CULTURE — A fascinating, site-specific art project hosted by The Jim Thompson House Museum in collaboration with Bangkok CityCity Gallery, this exhibition features work by artist Dusadee Huntrakul, in response to the existing ceramics in the house museum collection. Inspired by Jim Thompson’s original claywork, as well as Thompson’s mysterious disappearance while trekking back in 1967, Dusadee returns to clay, to create breathtaking representations of Thompson wandering along what he refers to as “the trail at the end of the world”.
