It's back again: a weekly round-up of the best things to do in Bangkok this weekend! This is officially the second weekend that we get to finally go out and enjoy the outside world after a long period of lockdown in many venues. But, hey, don't forget to take care of yourself and be responsible for others as well!

Explore Ari, the latest Bangkok neighborhood that has been crowned the coolest.

The annual list of coolest neighborhoods by Time Out has been out again, and we have nominated Ari as our pick because of its emerging and long-standing spots for dining and café-hopping as well as how it's shaping up to be the next area for Bangkok's art scene!
