Illustration for article titled This will be new

Made reservations in Bangkok for 5 nights, followed by 4 nights in Japan. First time in Asia. Beyond excited. Any general tips? Places to check out?

I’ll be staying in Sukhumvit for the first part, and downtown Tokyo for the second. Going with a friend, and another two people may or may not be joining.


On the list already:

Climb an abandoned “haunted” skyscraper

Check out some rooftop bars

Watch a ping-pong match or three, while shitfaced


Visit temples

Maybe a nighttime bike tour

Check out the red light districts


And potentially get some custom threads from a skilled tailor

Only thing on the Tokyo list so far is to try one of the go-kart on the streets things. A good steak dinner would be nice too.
