One of my favorite brunch restaurants in the area within walking distance. Crepes & Co serves both sweet and savory crepes, as well as plenty of Mediterranean specialties to keep you sated. Crepes & Co also does a mean brunch served all day, featuring eggs, pancake, fruit salad, yoghurt, and good coffee. It can get busy at Crepes and Co for weekend brunches.

I have never been here myself.. But with 75 years worth of history behind its legendary Cafe de Paris sauce, you can't go wrong with Le Boeuf! It's fancy, on the pricier side of restaurant dining by Bangkok's standards. Diners include expats and locals with a craving for the same dish they’ve tried in Paris and London. Could be a nice place for a special night. If you go, do let me know if it lives up to it's reputation! Opens 11am - 11pm.

This dessert cafe should be no stranger to you by now. After You first started in 2007, and it has been synonymous with Shibuya Toasts ever since. The Shibuya Honey Toast (THB175) is what After You got famous for, and fast forward many years, queues still form outside its various outlets every day for this amazing dessert. If you haven’t been, add this in to your itinerary. The biggest and prettiest outlet is the one at Siam Square One, but a queue prevails.

D’ARK BY PHILLIP DI BELLA D’ark is an increasingly popular spot among locals, and the outlet at EmQuartier is especially sexy with its dark interior. There are both alfresco and indoor seats, but either way, you are in for a treat. Of course they have good coffee, but what we really love is their desserts.

Karmakamet Diner needs no introduction. This popular space is always at the top of mind when people talk about Bangkok cafes. The space is well-furnished with a rustic touch, with so much thoughts put into every detail.

Established in July 2013, Rocket Coffee Bar started as a hole-in-the-wall joint at Sathorn Soi 12, and the rest as they say is history. It has since expanded to other parts of the city, including this largest outlet on Sukhumvit Soi 49.

Parks & Nature
The green lung of Bangkok’s city center, Lumphini Park is Thailand’s very first public park. The 58-hectare park was a private land of King Rama VI, named Thung Sala Daeng (Sala Daeng Field), which was re-landscaped in order to host Thailand’s first Expo in 1920s, which failed to happen as the king passed away. The park was later open for the public uses in 1952, and remains Bangkok’s top leisure park with some 10,000 visitors daily. During the cooler months of the year, from December to February, there’s a series of free live orchestra concerts on Sundays “Concert in the Park“ hosted by the Bangkok Symphony Orchestra featuring a number of guest singers, which makes a good opportunity for

Rather than 'bigger is better', Central Chidlom embraces a more practical concept of a 'one stop shop' for brand-name goods, unique gifts and fashion labels. It is one of the best places to go if you need something specific and don't want to be distracted along the way. There’s also a fine range of dining options, whether at stand-alone eateries (Greyhound Café, The Terrace) or at Central Food Loft, the innovative food court concept on the 7th floor. Central Chidlom is a pure shopping experience with no multi-screen cinemas or other massive entertainment outlets, but Central Embassy next door has one of the best cinema's in Bangkok.
