I’m sure many will know that Bangkok is not only a good place for shopping, but also a heaven for cafe hoppers! Cafes/theme restaurants are so popular in Bangkok because of their Instagram worthy designs, food (& price hehe). As much as I want to visit all of them, but due to time constraint & tummy constraint (Yes, there’s only so much I can eat in a day sadly), we can only pick some for each trip!
Villa De Bear is a restaurant with its own bedtime back story: The restaurant’s arm-less black bear mascot Villy (picture below), , inherited his uncle’s Teddy bear factory but was apparently more passionate about spreading joy with food than toys. He turned the factory into a food village, honoring the venue’s history by designing thread-, button- and gear-themed dining halls.
There were generous servings of seafood in the soup, which is actually good for sharing for 3-4 people, even for 5 if the group has a generally smaller appetite.
Oh I tell you, don’t judge the dish by its cover, although it doesn’t look as appetizing as the soup, it is delicious! It tasted something like the hor fun in Singapore, but with a sweet taste! Dip the fried dumpling skin into the dish, it taste heavenly I swear! 😀
We actually ordered a Thai Tea Crepe Cake (THB110) & also the Kinny (THB130) below! The filling is actually white chocolate, and good to eat once it’s served, because the cake will start to collapse after a while hahah.
We chose to visit the restaurant on the weekend, because they are only open from 5pm during weekdays, but they start earlier at 11am on weekends! & if you want prefer taking photos in the day time like me, remember to choose the weekend to drop by!
Villa De Bear

Opening hours: Mon-Fri 1700-2400 / Sat-Sun 1100-2400
The market is definitely much bigger than the TALD NEON Night Market we went the previous night, but not as big scale as the Chatuchak Market, and it’s pretty crowded especially at the food street and the stalls in the middle of the market!
You will come across a section which is less crowded after you finished with the stalls in the main street, and over here you will still see some stores selling all kinds of products, and some small scale cafes too!
After a night in the market, we didn’t buy much over there, but here are some of the things we got with a good deal!
Socks! Yes I think it’s really a must buy in Bangkok, like less than/around THB100 for these, while SG sells 3 for $10 usually. AND! these are anti slip ankle socks, so the socks won’t fall off when you walk! My favorite! <3<3
That’s about it for the second part of my BKK trip! Please share with me any interesting places to visit, activities to do in Bangkok if you have! 😀
