The neighbourhood of Thonglor (or Thong Lo) is home to some of Bangkok’s hottest restaurants, cafes, bars and shops.
Foremost among them is Bo.Lan, arguably one of the most famous Thai restaurants. Here you’ll find chefs Bo Songvisava and Dylan ‘Lan’ Jones’ elevated take on Thai cuisine, which has won them a Michelin star among other accolades. Another joint that everyone’s talking about is Rabbit Hole, a speakeasy that placed 34th on the 2019 Asia’s 50 Best Bars list.
But people aren’t just flocking here to eat, drink and party. Thonglor is also full of fashion and lifestyle brands. One of the most popular spots? Thonglor Art Village, which houses an intriguing mix of small lifestyle concepts selling vintage menswear, homewares, coffee and more.
Located on a busy stretch of Sukhumvit Road and just a short walk from the Thong Lo BTS station, the 22-storey Hotel Nikko Bangkok features 301 rooms overlooking the city.
Minimalist Japanese design is the order of the day across the hotel, while culinary offerings at Hotel Nikko Bangkok also nod to Japan: sushi, sashimi and other classics are served at the Hishou restaurant, while Oasis caters to all palates with dishes from around the world.
One of the main draws at Hotel Nikko Bangkok is its expansive outdoor swimming pool, where guests can take a break from their hectic itinerary and relax with cocktails and small bites.
