If all the shopping and eating makes you tire of materialistic pursuits, head east on Rama I Road towards CentralWorld. On the left is Wat Pathum Wanaram temple, a striking example of how culture and tradition coexists with modern materialism in Bangkok. The traditional Thai spires and roofs of this royally-built temple contrast sharply with the skyscrapers behind it. Enter the main chapel to meditate with the locals, and you’ll forget you’re smack dab in the middle of downtown Bangkok.

In business for close to 70 years, this is considered to be the first shop that sold the “Lod Chong Singapore” dessert now loved throughout Thailand. This simple concoction of pandan rice noodles doused in syrup and coconut milk is a real comfort food. The dessert is served in a simple plastic cup, and is prepared by pouring syrup in first, followed by the lod chong noodles, and is then topped with finely crushed ice. The prices are quite reasonable, at 20 baht a cup.

If Bangkok had its own version of Fifth Avenue or Orchard Road, Siam would be it. This is ground zero for the city’s massive malls, with Siam Paragon, MBK and Siam Center dominating the skyline. However, it’s the small boutiques and stalls across the street in Siam Square that really capture your attention. Wandering around the lanes, you might discover a small boutique opened by a recent fashion graduate, or perhaps a shop selling classic CDs from the 90s.
