With its eye catching and interesting cylindrical outer design, the Bangkok Arts and Culture Centre situated at the Pathumwan Intersection is a must visit for those visiting the city of angels. Given the relaxed environment of the city and the many entertainment options available throughout the day, accommodation in Bangkok Serviced Apartments would be ideal. Such a decision would afford greater freedom, privacy and complete relaxation as you call your time your own.
A location such as Anantara Baan Rajprasong Bangkok Serviced Suites would not only give you all of the above but would also ensure the very best in luxury and amenities as well.
Visiting the Bangkok Arts and Culture Centre is a relaxed occupation, with free entrance and long opening hours. The interior resembles the infamous New York Guggenheim with its wide sweeping white façade and spiral shaped walkways. This unique design centering around a circular atrium continues for all nine floors of the centre lending a whimsical appearance which creates vast spaces in which art of various forms are displayed.
The centre is not only about a single form of art but instead features contemporary design, sculpture, theatre, music, film and much more. Whilst not being a setting for fine arts per se, the Centre certainly establishes and brings together a wide array of Thai and International Art that is vastly appreciable and certainly stunning in its own right.
Opened in 2008, despite having begun in 2000, the very construction of the centre was inundated with political and funding issues. However following its opening to the public, the centre has proved to be a much welcomed, much loved addition to the cultural offering of the city. Open on all days except for Monday, from 10 am to 9pm, the Bangkok Arts and Culture Centre is a must do on your list.
