The year’s spookiest day is drawing near. And whilst many of us are prepping the most mind-frightening costumes and getting ready to let loose at parties on the hallowed evening of Halloween, October is also still filled with other exciting and fun-filled happenings to welcome city dwellers (or also Halloween nay-sayers) to come out and brave the horror-filled air of the latter part of the month for a little fun.


From an electro-pop mini-concert to a Chinese dining pop-up and a fun-filled rooftop beer carnival, there’s something to stir a little emotion in everyone in Bangkok. Read on for our hand-picked selection of things to do in the next two weeks and don’t forget to click “add to calendar” for the ones that catch your eye.
