Bangkok Comes To Marina Bay
Updated: Feb 21, 2017. Organiser updated the dates and venue for the event.
A slice of Bangkok will be coming to Singapore’s Marina Bay in just a few months, and the hippies in us couldn’t be more excited.
Come two weekends in April, this vision of glory will be seen just a mere hop, skip and jump from Bayfront MRT station:
Artbox is Thailand’s biggest hipster market, featuring young entrepreneurs trying to market their craft as they showcase their talents and out-of-the-box concepts.
Here’s a glimpse of how popular this flea market really is:
Futuristic ‘Pasar Malam’
In other words, Artbox is a “cooler” and more “hip” version of our humble pasar malam, with most of the stalls helmed by enterprising Thai students.
Prepare to make your wallet cry as you lose yourself in the wide array of stalls (over 200 of them) there.
From fashionable clothes to outlandish lifestyle products and lip-smacking delicacies, you are sure to find something that will appeal to you.
While we don’t know for sure how similar the Singapore Artbox will be to it’s BKK counterpart, let’s look at some things that were available at the recent Artbox in Bangkok.
To start off, how about a rainbow drink to quench your thirst, and brighten up your Instagram feed?
Or premium beef steak that is served in cubes?
Hopefully this flaming red burger tastes as good as it looks.
If not, these cheesy fries should hit the spot.
And finish it off with this quirky princess-like ice cream cone.
Of course, when you’re in Thailand, you can’t not drink Thai Milk Tea.
If you’re trying to watch your weight, you can immortalise your slim cartoon self in a portrait.
And get cute and quirky kitchenware to make food preparation that little bit more fun.
Cool and trendy clothes are aplenty here.
As well as all sorts of stuff to light up your life.
But seriously, if you aren’t there to eat, what’s the point of going? You will miss out on things like this:
