Bangkok Art & Culture Centre (BACC)

Bangkok Art & Culture Centre (BACC) is a place I feel is often overlooked by people visiting Bangkok. Most people come to Siam to shop and head straight for MBK or Siam and don't even notice BACC despite being right there in the center of all the most popular malls in Thailand its huge building often decorated with the latest eye catching art projects.

BACC is completely free to enter and there are many different exhibitions to see which are changed regularly, it's a nice quite place to take a break and enjoy some art, a stark contrast to the malls opposite which are always busy and loud and crazy, BACC is one of my favourite places to visit to get some peace away from the busy city outside.

As well as exhibitions they also have some in house artists selling artwork and handmade products and there are some artists which will draw your portrait for you to, there are also some really nice cafes where you can get some traditional and not so traditional Thai food, my favourite is an ice cream bar which serves ice cream that looks just like steak, fruits and even your pet dog, it's a really fun experience and definitely something a bit weird and different to check out.

Bangkok Art & Culture Centre is a good place to visit if you need a break from shopping and want to experience something a little bit different while you're in Thailand, a lot of the exhibitions are by Thai artists and reflect the current society, while I visited there was a great exhibition on LGBT in South-East Asia and photos that the Princess Maha Chakri Sirindhorn had taken while on her travels. Exhibitions change every few months so there is always something new to see there and it's great for those on a budget to as it's completely free to enter and look around, so I definitely recommend you check it out if you ever come to Bangkok.
