If you are looking for an instagrammable café to visit in Bangkok, be sure to check out 747 Café. This restaurant is actually built inside a hollowed-out Boeing 747 Aircraft, where you can explore and take aesthetic pictures around the plane. You will have to get a ticket to enter the restaurant, but don’t worry as it can be used to offset your final bill. The ticket only cost $120 baht (~SGD$4.50), so it is super cheap for such an experience.

The go-karts at E-Gokart Track by Monowheel are propelled by electricity. However, less pollution does not equate to less horsepower. On the Go Kart Plus, these have a top speed of 40 km/h. The typical go-kart can reach speeds of 24 km/h if you're more of a speed angel than a speed demon. Children's top speed limit is 8 km/h for safety reasons. By arriving later in the nights, you can up the chill factor. Not only will it be considerably colder outside—literally—but the circuit will also be illuminated by neon lights.
Address: Banthat Thong Road, Alley, Wang Mai, Pathum Wan District, Bangkok 10330, Thailand
Opening Hours: Monday - Friday 4:00pm – 12:00am | Saturday, Sunday & Public Holidays 10:00am – 12:00am

Bangkok is not only about night markets and skyscrapers. Even in the heart of the urban jungle, you can still find flora and fauna. Benjakitti Forest Park is close to 480,000 square metres, a place where you can catch a break away from the bustling city. A man-made "swamp," lakes, and ponds are strewn throughout the expansive terrain, which is exquisitely landscaped. Go on 2 wheels through the bike trails or on 2 feet via the 5.8km nature walk to observe in closer detail. Otherwise, bring a picnic and unwind at one of the many nearby sitting places.
Address: Ratchadaphisek Road, Khlong Toei, Bangkok 10110, Thailand
