Claire Mykura - Bangkok.com Writer

I moved to Thailand towards the end of 2010 and I like to spend my spare time shopping, drinking rooftop cocktails and eating cake. I love that Bangkok is so busy and ever changing, there is always a new restaurant, attraction or shop that I can add to the very long to-do list. I am lucky that exploring and writing about Bangkok’s latest and greatest is my full-time job or I would never fit everything in.
