When I first moved to Bangkok I was overwhelmed by not only the amount of really cool stuff to do but also by not being able to easily find the information I needed online. Many places didn’t have websites, or sites in English, and many review sites had outdated information. There needed to be a resource that focussed on just the best things to do in Bangkok that also had the most up to date information.

The Best Things To Do In Bangkok
Do More, Feel More
An online magazine that uses positive media and high quality images to encourage people to go out, explore and experience the coolest things Bangkok has to offer.
Only The Best
Life is too short for bad experiences so we only include the very best of Bangkok on Bangkok Adventures. These are things that we think people will want to do again and again.
Positive Focussed Content
We only write about the best things to do in Bangkok and never include negative remarks in our reviews – after all, if we have something negative about our experience the article won’t appear on Bangkok Adventures.
So Why Do I Do It?

To Highlight Cool Things To Do In Bangkok
To Have Fun Discovering The Places Myself
Bangkok Adventures Meetup
Facebook, YouTube, Reddit, Gizmodo… They all have one thing in common: a dedicated community.
Right from the start I knew that for BangkokAdventures.com to be successful it would need a strong community to help drive it, but how or where would I find one?
I considered all of the usual things such as a comment system or a forum but none of them felt appropriate. People were on BangkokAdventures.com looking for cool things to do in Bangkok, so why not create group events to do just that? This is how the community was created.

Regular Monthly Meetups
Each month we run several recurring Meetups for events that have proven popular such as rock climbing, bowling and gaming. These events fill up fast and there is always a waiting list.
Something New Every Month
Special events each month to add variety and keep the Meetup group interesting. Cat cafe’s, bobble football, sky bars and more, all in one Meetup group.
One Big Social Get-Together Each Month
Many people have made important friendships at our Meetup events and once a month we have one big social event to encourage this. These events attract almost 100 people from all around the world.
