“Electrifying. Exhilarating. Enlivening.”

A travel docuseries that explores the food, the drinks, the art, the music, the nightlife, and the subcultures of six iconic Asian metropolises. That’s Midnight Asia: Eat. Dance. Dream.

Although released just five days ago on Netflix, this new show has been watched by many in Bangkok and beyond. The six Asian cities featured are: Tokyo, Seoul, Mumbai, Bangkok, Taipei, and Manila. 

If we’re talking nightlife, needless to say, Bangkok makes the list. While we’re aware that Bangkok is the city that never sleeps, this Netflix documentary series delves into the why and the how of this statement. The ‘Bangkok, Thailand’ episode is the fourth in the six-episode series.
