For more on Bangkok, check out Volume 22: The Design Issue

Coupled with bouts of political unrest during the Nineties and more recent protests in 2013 and 2014, Bangkok has been overlooked by tourists who bookmark it as simply a stopover to one of Thailand’s hundreds of sun-slicked islands.

However, the city’s reputation is changing. There is a new energy pulsating through this tropical metropolis, resulting in a design and culture renaissance that is enticing inventive restaurateurs, world-class bartenders, cool start-ups and co-working spaces to its streets.
