When you are heading to Bangkok for a holiday, the Sathorn area of the city is an excellent destination to stay. There are excellent transport links in the area, and there is also plenty of things to see and do to make for a memorable trip. Whether you stay in one of the Sathorn hotels with a pool, or a simple guest house, you will have an excellent time when you visit the area, and below are some of the fantastic local things you can do while you are there.
Enjoy A Wander Around Lumpini Park
Lumpini Park is a lush green oasis in this vast sprawling metropolis, and it is around the corner from Sathorn, so it is within walking distance. There are plenty of people who head here to go for a run, and there are playgrounds for the kids. You can also watch the water monitors as they laze about in the sun, or you can join in with the aerobics classes and even learn to tango. It opens from 4:30 am and closes at 9 pm, and you will find it gets plenty of use throughout the day and night.
A Fantastic View Of The Cityscape
You may also want to try heading to The Roof @ 38, a rooftop bar on the 38th floor of the Mode Sathorn Hotel. You can get a fantastic view of the city at night and enjoy a few cocktails, but it is unsuitable for those rainy days. You are far above the noise and the hustle and bustle below so that you can enjoy scenic views with a kaleidoscope of lights without the noise of traffic. The bar opens from 5 pm until late, and it is an excellent place to start proceedings when you are heading out for the night to paint the town red.
Learn To Cook your Favourite Thai Dishes
You may also want to go to one of the many cooking schools available so you can learn to cook your favourite Thai dishes. The Blue Elephant Cooking School is in Sathorn and is also part of the Blue Elephant Restaurant. You can receive expert tuition and learn to prepare some of the many dishes in Royal Thai cuisine. The ingredients are included in the cost of the lesson, and the best part is you get to eat what you make. You can take home some new cooking skills from your trip to Bangkok and surprise your friends and family members with some authentic Thai dishes.
