Sunday brunch is not only a weekend activity amongst locals, but also a must-try for anyone visiting Bangkok. Nearly every hotel hosts one each weekend, promising a food and drink-riddled, adults-only afternoon for maximum indulgence. Nothing spells hedonism like drowning yourself in food and quality bubbly. From a top-notch brunch spot with endless live cooking stations, lavish buffet spread with free-flow Vintage Brut Champagne to the longest Champagne brunch in town, we’ve got the definitive guide to the most indulgent brunches you should be checking out when the weekend hits.

Make sure you leave room for a diet-busting range of decadent Thai and Western desserts created by the hotel’s German Pastry Chef.
