The Hangover II begs debauchery if you’re looking to have your bachelor party in Thailand’s capital. We’re going to go a different route if only because it was a truly horrible film. That’s not to say we’ll wholly ignore Bangkok’s club scene but let’s start out slow.
Try booking the Silom Thai Cooking School where your group will head to the market to shop for everything you need to prepare and then feast on a 5-course traditional Thai meal. If nothing else, you’ll be able to prepare an authentic meal for your significant other upon your return and simply use, “See baby, we really didn’t go crazy. We took a cooking class.”
Following lunch, head to the Bangkok Shooting Range, catering to bachelor parties for years. You’ll learn safe shooting practices before the tournament the staff assembles for groups begins and someone will have bragging rights for the rest of the evening.
To me, no bachelor party should be without all participants having a stomach full of red meat (to soak up all that booze later?) and you can’t do much better than El Gaucho Argentinian Steak House, no stranger to hosting a man’s sending off to his next life.
From there, I’m going to leave you to your own resources. If you want to keep it going till sunrise, Bangkok makes it easy. To suggest where you should go would be the acme of folly. Half the fun of Bangkok is playing it by ear and letting the night dictate your next destination. This is Bangkok, not rocket science. You’ve got it from here.
Visiting a new city for the first time can be overwhelming. With so much to see, a walking tour can be an effective way to see a city’s landmarks and learn a thing or two. These U.S. cities offer a variety of walking tours, whether you want to see popular attractions or hidden gems.
Bleisure — it’s a term we’re all familiar with these days. After all, millennials drive the rising trend, combining business and leisure trips regularly. Take a few days to decompress in a new destination after a hectic schedule of meetings and business.
Martinique’s artisanal rum scene has been making waves in recent years, with the tiny island nation earning a reputation for producing the best rhum agricole in the Caribbean. The next time you’re in town, be sure to swing by these stops on the Route de Rhums.
Dining is an art, and now that applies to both on the ground and at 35,000 feet thanks to Hainan Airlines’ “Hai Chef” Inflight Artistic Chinese cuisine series, a collaboration with Dong Zhenxiang, a Chinese culinary master also known as Dadong.
