The 2018 Affiliate World Asia Conference will take place on the 5th – 7th December at the Centara Grand and Bangkok Convention Centre, on the 22nd floor. The location could not be more perfect. We at Direct Affiliate cannot wait to make our way down to be apart of the biggest affiliate conference in Asia AND indulge ourselves in the many fun and interesting things we can do in Bangkok. So while you pack your luggage, we have here a list of attractions you can head do while you`re attending the AWA 2018!
Right across the Convention Centre is the newly rebuilt CentralWorld Shopping Mall. This place is packed with more things than you can imagine. It is one of the largest shopping malls in Asia. When you`re there for AWA 2018 and you want to get your dose of shopping done, there really isn’t a better location or option for that. At CentralWorld, you will find 500 shops over 7 floors with a range of international and Thai brands. In addition, more famous malls are just a stonethrow away, such as Siam Square, Siam Center, MBK, Siam Paragon and Platinum Shopping Mall. You can also take a stroll to Pratunam Market where you can indulge in an authentic shopping experience and also find a bargain 😉
The RedSky Rooftop Bar, situated right in CentralWorld Shopping mall will give you a view to die for. Take the lift up to the 55th floor and you`ll be faced with an impressive 360-degree panoramic view of Bangkok City. So it seems to be a perfect combination. Shop during the day and right before the sun sets, indulge yourself with a dinner of a glass of chilled wine with unforgettable views from the rooftop above the shopping mall itself. If it happens to be too packed, don`t worry! There are loads of rooftop bars in Bangkok that you can head to! Just a mere 15 mins drive are rooftop bars with breaktaking views such as; Speakeasy Rooftop Bar, Above Eleven and Vanilla Sky @ Compas SkyView Hotel.
Now that you`ve got all your shopping and sky high view of the bustling city, let`s soak in more authentic experiences of Thailand that you can keep with you forever. Thailand is known to be the land of a thousand smiles. Thailand is also famous for its spiritual culture, where Buddhas statues are extremely popular with locals and visitors alike. Here is a list of places you can go or things you can do to get involved with their rich culture.
Hop in a car and just 15 minutes away is the famous Golden Buddha Temple. Located at the end of Chinatown`s Yaowarat Road, near Hualampong Railways Station, The Golden Buddha Temple houses the world`s largest massive gold seater Buddha measuring nearly five metres in height and weighing five and a half tons. Just another 15 minutes away is a Buddhist Temple complex in the Phra Nakhon District of Bangkok; Wat Phra Buddist Temple (also known as the Temple of the Reclining Buddha). This place is a must visit for any first time visitor in Bangkok. It’s one of the largest temple complexes in the city and famed for its giant reclining Buddha that measures 46 metres long and is covered in gold leaf. And of course there`s plenty of night markets to try their local delicacies. Head down to the Neon Market; the latest hipster downtown night market to open in the heart of Bangkok.
