Among beef aficionados, the experience of pairing beef steak or degustation with decent red wines is a mere exaltation. How about pairing a hot, aromatic bowl of beef noodle soup with well-chosen wine, doesn’t it sound novelly compelling? At Social Noodles, not only you can take pleasure in a bowl of beef noodle, you can also ask for a wine recommendation to pair with the noodle soup and try various reinvigorating cocktails after the meal. Pairing rich soup with a wine can amazingly transform the experience. When savouring it with bold red Cotes du Rhone RS Rouge, the French wine’s hint of fruitiness and dryness complements the beef’s aroma so well. With peppery Australian Baan Shiraz & Co, the pleasant aftertaste of the soup lasts longer. Topped on the noodles are braised shank beef, sliced beef, and meat balls to beef up the experience. If you aren’t into beef, other delicious options like classic Pad Krapow or Thai Prawn Omlette are available as well, and yes, you can try pairing with a wine if you want to. Please note that not a single MSG will be found here. The meal time with your friends or colleagues can become joyously “social” thanks to the fully stocked bar to craft you signature glasses like Oliang Martini or Ros-mopolitan to keep your conversation flowing. The restaurant's wonderful array of wines comes from sustainable boutique wineries across the globe, which are mostly produced in small batches. And if simply chatting is not “social” enough, you can jazz up the place with a karaoke session if you’d like it! Social Noodles is located on Sukhumvit Soi 22, Bangkok.

Chao Phraya Sky Park is a pedestrian bridge across the Chao Phraya River and a new landmark for Bangkokians. It is the country’s first-ever sky park and the world’s first sky park crossing over the river, connecting Thon Buri and Phra Nakhon sides of the Chao Phraya River together. The Chao Phraya Sky Park is a scenic viewpoint amid the greenery along the walking route. Behind the Chao Phraya Sky Park project is the collaboration between the City Planning and Urban Development Department of Bangkok Metropolitan Administration (BMA),  together with The Urban Design and Development Center (UddC) and other partners with an aim to improve Bangkok's thoroughfare and landscape, as well as to increase the public green area. The project is also implemented with public participation and mutual ownership among various sectors to raise public awareness on the importance of green areas. Situated between the traffic lanes of the Phra Pok Klao Bridge, the Chao Phraya Sky Park is an elevated public park with wide walkways and bicycle lanes connecting two sides of Bangkok, as well as relaxing corner, viewpoint, and space for recreational activities. The sky park is designed to be a double-deck walking route with ramps traversing up and down between two levels, equipped with guardrail, elevator, and other facilities for persons with disabilities and elderly people. In terms of architecture, it highlights easy functions and maintenance. Trees and flowers are thoughtfully selected to suit Bangkok's weather conditions, avoiding growing large perennial trees to reduce the weight of the structure and minimize the harm from dead branches and leaves for the safety of people commuting along the nearby bridge.

Indeed, "art" does not relate to us only aesthetically, but it can also impact us in a communal level. Art can make a community more livable, enhance safety, and boost tourism as well as the area's economy. Recognising its importance, Bangkok Metropolitan Administration (BMA) has come up with a project to depict Bangkok through works of art, to make desolate spots safer, to make a good use of empty spaces, and bring vibrant street arts to the heart of Bangkok. At Ong Ang Canal, travelers can experience charming ways of living of the communities around centuries-old Ong Ang canal and enjoy speculating street arts portraying the lives around here in the past. In the early days, Ong Ang Canal was a floating pottery market, selling various types of earthen water jars and the canal was named after its main product, "Ong Ang", meaning pottery in Thai. The BMA has implemented various measures to clean up this canal, revive its landscape, and allow water to flow to Chao Phraya River. Shortly after the transformation, Thailand's Ong Ang Canal was one of the 6 places in Asia to win the 2020 Asian Townscape Awards by UN-Habitat Fukuoka. In Sathorn area, tourists can spot street arts at various sites, one of them being Wat Yan Nawa Canal in Si Suriyothai Community. Along the canal, nearby communities are where Buddhism, Islam, Christianity, and Bramanism have been co-existed in harmony. Once an abandoned site, the area surrounding the canal has been revitalised with "Canal Art", making it a new landmark of the city thanks to support from various private sectors and artists. In addtition to the magical transformation of the over 890-metres long wall, safety of the community has been increased with installation of street lights and green inspection booth of City Law Enforcement Section. This area also boasts a potential for developing into community tourist attraction of Sathorn district. To add more vivacity, street foods of high quality are available throughout the canal side journeys. Quality of street food in Bangkok have been improved to make sure that all ingredients are safe to consume and the venues are clean, with "Food Safety Standard Certificate" to reassure the safety.
