Don’t let the gloomy weather dampened your mood! There’s still much fun to be had around town. How does a pool party, contemporary Swan Lake performance, and an embroidery course sound? Catch up on the best ways to spend your week below.
Getting unintentionally drenched in the rain? Not chic. Willingly cannonballing into a pool party? Yas. “Beats by the Pool” is back by popular demand and this time around, the hosting venue, W Bangkok, has hooked up with Cointreau, Red Bull, Rival Wine, and Bangkok Invaders for signature cocktails crafted by their in-house mixologist. Sip some drinks by the pool and have a blast with live DJ tracks.

If you’re up for something more mellow, carve out an afternoon/evening to experience this refreshing Swan Lake adaptation. Flying all the way in from France, the ballet performance is light-handed on the production front, reintroducing the seminal text to a modern audience. This rendition encompasses heavier themes of capitalism, environmentalism, and familial conflicts.

Another smart way to keep your wardrobe interesting without shopping for new items is some good ole fashion DIY. Embroidery patches are one of the oldest tricks in the book, which you may have tried your hand at in the past to varying degrees of satisfaction. But, in the guiding hands of an embroidery artist, you'll be able to learn how to outline, colour grade, and strategically fill in negative space—all within a neat four-hour workshop.
