It is an undeniable fact that Bangkok is one of the most popular and inexpensive travel destinations in Southeast Asia. From culture to shopping, to nightlife, there’s almost nothing that you can’t do in the City of Angels.
Also known as a foodie’s paradise, Bangkok is home to many homegrown cafe brands (read: Greyhound Cafe) that serve quality treats and coffee. But if you want a unique experience, there are many Instagrammable themed cafes just waiting for you to explore. To help you out, we’ve compiled a list of themed cafes that you need to check out the next time you’re in Bangkok.
You can thank us later ;)

Besides that, they also provide unicorn onesies for patrons to wear.
