5 Things to Do in Sathorn – A City of Highlights

The city of Sathorn is full of exciting things to see and do. This varied selection includes awe-inspiring buildings, extensive courses and even the opportunity to pick up a few new skills. So, here are the five best things you can do while visiting Sathorn.

1

The Blue Elephant

For those who want to unlock their hidden talent for the culinary arts, a visit to the Blue Elephant is an absolute must. At this amazing cooking school, you can attempt to prepare a smorgasbord of royal Thai cuisine. The keyword here is 'attempt' – but don't be discouraged if you're just an amateur cook. There are a number of instructors stationed here to guide you through every process. These individuals are passionate about gastronomy, so there's a great chance that you'll learn a few new cooking tips and tricks from them! What's more, the Blue Elephant can easily be reached from most prominent Sathorn restaurants – such as the Chatrium Residence Sathorn Bangkok for one. So, why not amok a stop at the cooking school after having a pleasant dining experience yourself?

Lumpini Park

If you're looking to get away from the constant hustle and bustle of the city and enjoy a moment of tranquillity, Lumpini Park is the destination for you. Here you can treat yourself to plenty of fresh air and a serene view of the gardens. The park itself derives its name from the birthplace of Lord Buddha – the Lumbini Park of Nepal. It is one of Bangkok's largest green spaces and is a refuge for an array of unique plants and animals – most notably birds. Few things can beat a relaxing jog along the park at sunset, and you can even join up for a daily aerobics or yoga class here.

M.R Kukrit's House

M.R. Kukrit was Thailand's Prime Minister from 1974 to 1975. This was a turbulent time for the country as well as its political landscape, and more often than not Kukrit and his residence were at the heart of it. Thanks to the Kukrit 80 Foundation, the house of this esteemed world leader is now open for the public to visit and admire. The exhibits on display here are a testament to Kukrit's ability not just as politician, but also as a poet, creative writer and artist. The architecture and furnishings of the building are sights to be admired as well and the Prime Minister was well known for having an extensive collection of Buddha statues.

Robot Building

First established in 1986, Bangkok's Robot Building is certainly one of the most peculiar-looking buildings you can visit in the city. According to the architect behind this 20-storey tall skyscraper, the inspiration for the design came from one of his son's toy robots!

The Ghost Tower

The Sathorn Unique was once set to be the most luxurious residencies in all of Bangkok. However, it had the unfortunate luck of being built right before the 1997 economic crisis. Once the crisis hit, construction screeched to a halt and now this 50-storey tall behemoth lies unfinished. Still, that hasn't stopped a plethora of visitors travelling to the aptly named Ghost Tower on a daily basis. Not only is it fun to explore, but it's also where you'll find the famous Sky Bar Lounge!
