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 Market

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.

Pretty Bites

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.
