Sara Malakul Lane (31, Bangkok)
Actress and model
My favorite place: Bangkok
Bring there: Bangkok is a very fashion-forward city. I like to bring slinky dresses by The Reformation that can go from day to night, the Leica C camera, rag & bone hat, and my Birkenstocks.
Must-do: Visit Wat Phra Kaew, walk around China Town at night, go to the flower market in the morning (and get traditional street stall breakfast like congee, Chinese donuts, iced coffee, and pomegranate juice), spend an afternoon at the Devarana spa, visit the snake farm at the Thai Red Cross Society and watch one of their daily snake shows.
Don’t do: Do not travel by car anywhere between 4 p.m. and 8 p.m. (skytrain only) – Bangkok traffic is world-renowned for being slow.
Must-see: A boxing match at Lumpini Stadium.
Must-buy: The small farm shop next to Bo Larn restaurant sells organic locally made pastes, oils, and powders (both for cooking and for cosmetic purposes) that are unique and make great gifts and souvenirs.
Eat at: Bo.lan, Four Seasons Sunday brunch, The Seafood Market.
Drink at: Above Eleven rooftop bar.
Sleep at: W Bangkok.
