    30 Jan 2015 : Without a doubt, Bangkok is one of the world’s most frustrating cities in which to cycle. We’ve got big buses swooping left to right, motorcycles whizzing past and drivers who act like they’ve never before seen a non-motorised vehicle.

  • WINE ME DINE MEHaute cuisine, hotter views

    30 Jan 2015 : One of the most anticipated dining spots to open in Bangkok, Vogue Lounge is already making a name for itself. A sense of exclusivity oozes wall to wall, and the classic tricolour scheme of black, white and gold emits an air of “je ne sais quoi” that makes you question whether you’re stylish enough for a table. During the day, large windows give reign to daylight, making the lounge an appropriate place for a business lunch. But as night falls, resident DJs and mixologists reset the mood with fancy cocktails and deep house music, partnered effortlessly with tapas-sized dishes created by chef Vincent Thierry. The outdoor area, reminiscent of a swanky New York City rooftop bar, provides diners with cool breezes year-round (air-conditioners help out during the hotter months). Diners include expats, businesspeople and stylish foodies looking for haute cuisine with a killer view.
