1.Discover secret bars in Bangkok

Bangkok is fun, you have everything that you need and there are new things to discover all the time. It has developed into a really international city with lots of different kinds of people, making it a must-see for anyone discovering Thailand on a luxury yacht.

Head to the Thonglor neighbourhood for all the coolest bars, restaurants and shops – I think of it as the Notting Hill of Bangkok. There is a bar called Black Amber – you have to know where it is. It’s a barbershop combined with a whisky and cigar bar. You can go in, get your hair cut and have a cigar afterwards. It’s very cool, decked out in black leather and they have live jazz music.

There’s another place called Havana Social Bangkok and it’s hidden behind a phone booth. You have to know the right number to dial, and the back of the booth opens into a Cuban bar.

You can stay at our hotel in Thonglor, the Akyra Bangkok, after your night out. For those who love shopping, there are some really unique shops on the ground floor. We have couture Thai designers with ready-to-wear collections who can make bespoke pieces too. There’s also a vintage second-hand shop in the hotel, as well as a kitchen store – it’s eclectic!
