Eat It

The fiery green curry lobster with coconut milk and Thai basil at Nahm (dinner for two $75), an exciting newcomer from Australian chef David Thompson.

See It

Up-and-coming video installation artist Sutthirat Supaparinya’s politically inspired solo show at WTF Café & Gallery (through March 9), a new bohemian-style bar and gallery.

Book It

The new St. Regis Bangkok (doubles from $285), with teakwood floors, Thai silk furnishings, and the city’s best views. Our favorite space: the sleek, gray-on-white room 2102 on the 21st floor.

Buy It

Cult local designer Matina Sukhahuta’s Taj Mahal–inspired enamel and gold-plated silver cocktail ring at Matina Amanita Mansion (rings from $100), which specializes in whimsical baubles.

St. Regis, Bangkok

The lavish 227 guest quarters are studies in painted teak and marble, but unrivaled service sets the property apart. Our favorite space: the sleek, gray-on-white room 2102 on the 21st floor.
