One night in Bangkok

I was a day & night in Bangkok to celebrate the birthday of one of our friends. I always like it to be a day in the big Smoke. But also always happy to be home. After a smooth flight with Thai Airways to Survanabhumi  Airport we took the Airport-Link and BTS to our hotel. To find out I had booked a wrong hotel. Same name, almost same location but not the hotel I intended to stay. Well never mind.

We had dinner appointment at Thonglor Soi 13, where is a kind of Bar & Restaurant Plaza "Seen Place" with many different restaurants. Actually all Thonglor seems to be the hottest place to be in Bangkok at the moment. The street is filled up with Porches, Mercedes, Mini-coopers and other expensive cars. We had dinner at "Fatr Gutz" an open-air European style bar & restaurant serving great Thai & International food. And a great choice of wine and beer. You should try the Australian oysters! Good food, great staff and soft music. For more information see  Fat Gutz Saloon (NOT the one at Soi 13)

After a great dinner we moved to "Iron Fairies" opposite Soi 13. A small looking but inside great and amazing bar & restaurant (I would call it more a bar as a restaurant). Amazing interior, good drinks, great staff and good life music! What more do you want? For more information see Iron Fairies Thonglor

As I had seen "Mr. Jones Orphanage" at Seen Place we had a early lunch at Siam Center where they have a small version of their shop at the 3th floor. It is called a restaurant but at least the one at Siam Center is more a bakery as they sale cake, cake and cake. But ... the best cake I had! They have a carrousel of cakes to choose from in a childern playground looking place. Did not see any kids. The staff could be a bit more attentive. For more information see Mr. Jone Orphanage

Before flying back home we had a looooong and late lunch at "Crepe & Co Thonglor" (near Soi 8) and although I am missing the tropical & colonial atmosphere of the old restaurant at Soi 12 they still serve the best crepes in town. Well not only crepes but also good sandwiches and tapas. For more information see Crepe & Co Thonglor
