A trip to Thailand isn't complete without trying authentic Thai milk tea. As a milk tea enthusiast, you just can't miss the chance to experience the real thing. Getting a taste of authentic Pad Thai is also a non-negotiable!
But if you're more into coffee—because coffee is LIFE, no matter where you are—Thailand's capital is also brimming with must-visit cafes tucked within its corners. All you really have to do is look close enough, aka do proper research about which ones to visit. Below, we rounded up three of our favorite coffee shops to add to your Bangkok itinerary.
Pink Pool Cafe
Address: Pathum Wan, Pathum Wan District, Bangkok
Stylenanda's Pink Pool Cafe is probably one of the coffee shops with the most Insta-friendly interiors. Its flagship store is found in Seoul, South Korea, but you could also visit the one in Bangkok for a glimpse of what it offers. There's also a 3CE branch on the first floor of the building if you're looking to make a beauty haul.
Address: Silom, Soi Sala Daeng 1, Bangkok
Bitterman Cafe might be familiar to avid K-Pop fans, especially to BLINKS. The girls of the girl group Blackpink dropped by this restaurant and coffee shop when they visited Thailand (Lisa's homeland!) to film for their online series Blackpink House. It's got a cozy vibe, which is perfect for when you just want to chill after touring around the city.
Address: 70 Phayathai Rd, Thanon Phetchaburi, Ratchathewi, Bangkok
B-Story Cafe is pretty accessible to tourists hoping to visit it—it's right down the Ratchathewi Station of Bangkok's BTS Skytrain line. The rustic vibe of the place is the perfect contrast to the bustling city surrounding it. They also serve Thai meals if you want to skip your caffeine fix.
