Hippie Bar, Bangkok
There's not much vintage to be found in Bangkok, since Thais are pretty obsessed with the new and the shiny (or at the other extreme, frilly frippery), but tucked away just off Khao San Road is our favourite hangout, Hippie De Bar, the perfect vintage venue to kick back with a Sangsom (Thai rum) of an evening. It's decked out in a thoroughly retro theme with painted metal garden furniture, floral cushions, stripy wallpaper and displays of random retro kitsch. What more could you want - there's even huge daisies on the ceiling!
Sorry for the rubbish photos - I should really have gone there during the day to take pics!
