About the Book
Cool Bangkok! is your guide for where to shop, dine, party and sleep in one of the world's most popular travel destinations. Featuring more than 130 clubs, bars, restaurants, hotels and other venues, all of which have been carefully selected for their individuality and personal flair, this book enables you to strike off from the capital's well trodden tourist paths and confidently explore side streets and hot spots in search of new experiences.
Suitable for tourists and residents alike, the guide profiles a range of places that are testament to the city's diversity, whether you're after haute couture or urban fashion, molecular gastronomy or fiery street food, or stripped back blues or Dutch electro. As Cool isn't synonymous with cost, care has been taken to include venues that match a range of budgets, suitable for anyone from fashionistas to dime-store divas.
About the Author
Greg Lowe is a British journalist who settled in Bangkok ten years ago after mountain biking around Mongolia, Tibet, Nepal and Thailand. he has written for a number of newspapers, including The Guardian, South China Morning Post, The Business Times and Bangkok Post, as well as Travel + Leisure Southeast Asia, CNNGo.com, Fah Thai and Jetstar. When he's not checking out the latest bars and restaurants around Bangkok, Greg divides his time between training Bagua Zhang in Lumpini Park, procrastinating and being on the receiving end of his daughter Isabel's bilingual sarcasm, which is pretty impressive for a three-year old.
