The best events to catch in Bangkok this week, including a joint art exhibition by some of Thailand’s most talented artists, and an event on Thai contemporary home decor.
Happy Holidays! With many of us returning from a long weekend at the beach — have you applied for the government’s ‘Rao Tiew Duay Gun’ benefits yet? — the days ahead promise to be pretty fresh and exciting, now that we’re fully rejuvenated. For those who feel energised enough to go out and explore the city, there’s much in store on the events front. Over by the river, Avani+ Riverside Hotel is bringing together five reputed artists for an exhibition on freedom and equality, while Central Embassy is back with phase two of its CHEERITY market, to help support local businesses.
