Bizarre Bangkok – As creative as it gets

The thriving metropolis of Bangkok remains at the heart of many adventures. Such journeys will escort you through varying sights and sounds, affording glimpses of a cultural symbol which marries modernity with a rich legacy.

Erawan Museum

It is not every day that you will stumble upon a sight as glorious and as peculiar as the Erawan Museum in Samut Prakan. This 29 metre tall, 39 metre long museum which depicts a three-headed elephant statue will guide you into its interiors comprising religious iconography, eastern antiques and elaborate carvings from eras long gone.

Papaya Vintage Shop

And no this is not to be mistaken for your local fruit market but the Papaya Vintage Show holds a wealth of treasures that will surely evoke your fondest childhood memory. If there ever was a ‘one stop shop’ to enjoy your favourite comic characters, then be sure to check this place out. Amidst the art deco and vintage furniture from the 60s, one will be able to witness cartoon characters ranging from the Green Lantern, Wolverine, Flash and yes…the Caped Crusader himself!

Ayutthaya

Go back in time to Bangkok’s ancient capital which lies in close proximity to a range of serviced apartments Bangkok provides such as those at Anantara Baan Rajprasong Bangkok Serviced Suites. History buffs will find Ayutthaya to be a welcome escape within which the city’s celebrated past will be brought to light. Be in awe of ruined brick walls and Buddha statues before pausing by the waters of the River of Kings.
