Ahh, another week is upon us, and you’re looking for cool things to get up to in Bangkok! We’ve saved you the hassle with The Beat Bangkok’s rundown of the best places to hit up and things to do right now—from blink-and-you'll-miss-it pop-up sights and new restaurant openings, to the hottest activities that you shouldn’t miss.

To keep your finger on the pulse of the city, follow The Beat Bangkok to see what’s best in store for the week ahead. 

1. ‘Tintin Moonwalker' @ Alliance Française de Bangkok

You’d never think Tintin as a seer who sees the future, but Hergé, Tintin’s creator, struck scientific and pop culture gold upon creating “Explorers of the Moon,” where he sent Tintin and Snowy to Luna. Little did he know that 16 years later, that will become a reality for real people, with the Apollo 11 doing what was previously thought as a comic event. 

This documentary, shown by Alliance Française de Bangkok, will delve into this unique piece of animation history that could have been the push mankind needed to reach the moon. Get your tickets here

When: 7 PM, Mach 22 

Where: Alliance Française de Bangkok, 179 Witthayu Road, Lumphini, Pathum Wan, Bangkok 

How much: THB60 

2. ‘Teatro alla Cantina’ @ Cantina Italian Kitchen 

You’re not ready to be regaled by opera singers while having a fine Italian meal, an experience far more exclusive than you think. Every Thursday at Cantina Italian Kitchen, they offer that high-class, high-tone affair while you eat one of the best meals you’ll ever eat.

Whether you plan for this to be a recurring event for you or there’s a special something burning a hole in your calendar, this is the place to be.

3. ‘Piano Recital by Wolfgang Glemser @ Goethe-Institut Thailand’

Classical music is amazing on paper and even better in action. There’s a reason why it’s lasted this long, and is actually thriving. Professor Wolfgang Glemser will play Haydn, Scarlatti, and Lizst for the first half of the showcase, and to those who want to hear true virtuosic music, this is the time and place for it. The second half is even better, with Rachmaninoff and Chopin on the block.

This is rare, and it’s free. This is the planets lining up for you to experience the work of masters.

When: 7 PM, March 28

Where: Goethe-Institut Thailand, 18/1 Soi Goethe, Khwaeng Thung Maha Mek, Khet Sathon, Bangkok

4. ‘Disney on Ice: Mickey and Friends’

There’s a reason why Disney characters have a place in everyone’s hearts. “Disney on Ice” is one of those ways they burry into the memory of children (and the parents who accompany them). But, this one is rather special. “Mickey and Friends” have a way of being so memorable that you’d want to see it twice at least.

When: March 23-26

Where: Impact Muang Tong Thani, 99 Popular Road, Pakkred, Bangkok

How much: Starts at THB800

5. ‘Eclipse' by Prasong Luemuang

Sometimes, a portrait canvas just doesn’t do for such big feelings and ideas. Prasong Luemuang, who spent the pandemic observing and reflecting on this period, has created the largest set of paintings of his career. The ideas will envelop you, in sight and in thought, as art is wont to do.

When: 5 PM-9 PM, March 23

When: March 23-26

Where: MunX2, Seacon Square, 55, 1 Srinakarin Road, Nong Bon, Prawet, Bangkok

How much: Available upon inquiry

7. Trivia Night @ Rembrandt Hotel & Suites Bangkok

More than that, in lieu of a ticket, your entry will go directly to AMCHAM’s charity arm and help the 75 students under the guidance of the organisation.

What’s the one thing you need to create digital user experiences (UX), apart from knowing the technical stuff? You should know people, how people act, and what makes them act. For UX and UI (user interface) designers who need that vital human contact for work and social reasons, the UX Happy Hour Bangkok is the perfect place to talk shop and just talk.

When: 7 PM, March 22

Where: The Clubhouse Sports Bar & Grill, 21/1-3 Soi Sukhumvit 23, Khlong Toei Nuea, Watthana, Bangkok

Unwinding has to be part of your life. Without it, you’ll coil up and never be seen again. And there’s no better place to unwound a stressed self than in a beach with a DJ providing a soundtrack of house and light techno to your being free from bother. It’s in the name itself, “LOVE, PEACE & HAPPINESS.” These three founding principles are all you need, wherever you are in life, to create a good and lasting headspace.
