Klook Thai Open House at Plaza Singapura
If Thailand is your country of choice whenever that feeling of wanderlust creeps up on you and you practically live on Pad Thai and have Thai Milk Tea coursing through your veins, you’re going to wanna mark your calendars for this.
For the first time ever, Klook is joining forces with the Tourism Authority of Thailand to bring you a week-long bonanza of all things Thai at their Thai Open House right smack at Plaza Singapura this 21st -26th May 2019.
With intentions to show more of Thailand’s amazing beauty to the world, you’ll find an “experiential zone” that’ll let you discover hidden gems like Pai and Chiang Rai to discover what’s waiting in store.
From the boat noodles to the best of Thai fashion, here’s what you can expect at the upcoming Thai Open House:
1. Feast on delicious Thai food like boat noodles, roast pork & candy floss crepes
Dig into mini bowls of piping hot boat noodles at Gu Thai Boat Noodles or relive your Chatuchak days with a bag of crisp, succulent roast pork over at Uncle G’s Handmade. You can also expect to find street food staples such as braised pork rice and stuffed chicken wing with minced pork and glass noodle over at Baan Ying’s.
Order up a serve of Co+Nut+Ink‘s coconut ice cream and be treated to a cup of fresh coconut water on the house in true Thai style. And don’t miss the Roti Sai Mai a.k.a Thai fairy floss stall that’ll only be there for 3 days from the 24th-26th May.
And more than just buying a couple of serves to bring home, be sure to chope seats to Baan Ying’s live cooking demonstration to dabao some Thai cooking tips to level up your cooking!
Pro tip: Sidestep the queues on the actual days by pre-booking your food online with the Klook App! Not only will you enjoy discounted deals, but you’ll also join the running to be one of the 45 winners to walk away with a grand prize of S$400 cash and S$100 Klook credits!

2. Shop at booths by Shop JJ that look straight out of Chatuchak
Bangkok is a glorious treasure trove of cheap buys. Every trip almost guarantees a luggage full of knick-knacks and treats on your return. And while it might not be the real deal, you can stock up on some cute and kitschy accessories at stalls such as Shop JJ and fahfahshop or commission a dainty watercolour hoop painting of you and your ride or die at Second Studio.
Second Studio will also be running flower arrangement and watercolour painting workshops that start from $55!
3. Get some travel and photography tips from experts
