This weekend, check out Thailand’s hottest market, learn about robotics at an open house, get hands-on for Earth Day and more.
Check out an art market from Thailand
If you were put off by the huge crowds at Artbox last weekend, this weekend should hopefully be less of a squeeze. There’s lots to buy and eat, like clothes, bags and accessories, the photogenic Talad Drink and Dragon’s Breath liquid nitrogen ice cream, Thai street pancakes and of course Thai milk tea. To avoid getting ensnared in human traffic, we suggest heading there when it opens or near closing time.
21 – 23 April 2017, 3pm – 11pm, Bayfront Event Space. Check the Facebook event page for updates.

There’ll be free workshops all day and seats are limited – reserve a slot here.

Save the earth with a run
