Bangkok is a city that polarizes with its many attractions. Throughout the year, there are lots of events for music lovers, party people and those who’d like to appreciate the cultural aspect of Thailand.

April is a very special month of the year in Thailand. During the 13th – 15th, Songkran Festival is taking place. Songkran is possibly the biggest event in Thailand each year, so it comes as no surprise that most venues around Bangkok feature a Theme related to that Festival.

For those however who haven’t had a chance to participate at Songkran, there are still a few other things to put down in your calendar.

Together Festival

For anybody that likes electronic music and wants to see some of the best DJs in the world, this is the place to be. This year there will be Artists like Martin Garrix and Marshmello among many others. There are different ticket options available that allow for an access to the event for 2 days. Although this is probably more interesting for a younger audience, people who generally like the kind of music being played, might find value in it. The Festival takes place at the end of April, the 28th. Tickets are starting at 2,995 THB.

Have a drink

There is no better way to enjoy a cocktail after work than at one of many rooftop bars. There are many great hotels in Silom that offer stunning views over Bangkok. For your favorite cocktail after work, you can visit our Finishing Post Bar at Crowne Plaza Bangkok Lumpini Park where you can enjoy a beautiful view of Bangkok’s skyline. 

Visit a temple

Bangkok is not only a very large city, but it’s also full of culture and heritage. Part of that culture are the impressive temples.

When visiting Bangkok, it is a must to take a day or two to visit one of the temples. The Grand Palace is probably the most popular, along with the Wat Arun Temple. Both look stunning and offer a great piece of history to enjoy. It is, however, important to note that with more and more people visiting Thailand, there is an increasingly high number of tourists that are taking pictures alongside you. To get to those temples, it’s probably best to take a taxi from Silom Road.

Shopping

For anybody who is looking to buy either a souvenir, or any kind of luxury good, Bangkok offers many opportunities to do just that.

Chatuchak Market is a weekend market that is so large, you might get lost in it. Aside from any purchase intention, it’s generally fun to walk around that market and experience the busy atmosphere. Additionally, there are great places to have some local Thai food, in case you need a break. Markets in Bangkok are popular among locals as they offer cheap goods for everyday use.

Alternatively, if it’s your desire to buy at a luxury boutique, you’re better of looking elsewhere. Luckily, Bangkok has many mega malls that offer all the biggest brands, so you shouldn’t have any trouble finding exactly what you’re looking for. A great mall to look at is Silom Complex, which has many stores that offer anything from clothing to coffee shops. For all the bigger purchases, you might want to consider Siam Paragon, a lot bigger mall that should satisfy all your needs. It’s easily accessible by BTS.

All in all, there really isn’t a bad time to be in Bangkok. Great weather and plenty of opportunities to keep you busy throughout the day, make this city one of the most popular in the world.
