“Those who don’t believe in magic will never find it.” – Roald Dahl
As a lover of fantasy fiction – yes, fairies, mermaids, dragons and elves… I can get a tad carried away when it comes to thinking about the existence of magic or the lack thereof.
Fortunately for me (and for everyone else who’d love if magic existed), there are places we can go to – to experience a magical time.
While no wands were waved – these enterprising cafe owners have created some truly magical spaces that might just remind you of that enchanted forest you’ve read about in fairytales.
Fairies and elves might not exist (or do they?), but these incredible cafes definitely do.
So if you’re looking for something a little out of the ordinary to do – go find the magic in Bangkok and step into one of these enchanted forest cafes!
34 Charming new unique cafes and restaurants in Bangkok that are must-visits!

A space adorned in flowers, overflowing from the walls and ceiling beams above… It’s so pretty you might just feel like you’re in Thumbelina’s world, surrounded by pink and white florals.
The setup includes an inside and outside area, and feels light and airy with a touch of modern cool. They’ve really taken the floral thing seriously, down to the final touches on the plate.
Check out the rose theme in their dishes from Rose ice-cream, to ice-cream bouquets. And whatever can’t be turned into some sort of floral shape, is decorated with gorgeous (edible) flower petals.
Everything here is ridiculously pretty and it also makes for some seriously fab photographs – the Rose mural is a cool place to snap away too!
