Piyarom Sports Club

3079/23 between Sukhumvit Soi 101 and Soi 101/1, 0-2747-9800. Open Mon-Thu 6am-10pm, Fri-Sat 6am-11pm. www.piyaromsportsclub.com
Whatever your sporting passion, it seems like they’ve got it covered at this high-end sports club that sits slap bang on Sukhumvit Road. Choose from the well-equipped gym, tennis, basketball, swimming, squash, table tennis, or the rather less strenuous option of snooker. Once you’ve worked up an appetite, Piyarom is surrounded by numerous chain restaurants and entertainment options like Major Bowl. The one downside is the cost, with membership starting at B18,000 for just three months or B24,000 for 1 year, plus there’s also a B1,300 monthly charge.

Imperial Bakery And Food Culinary School (IBAF)

2312-2314 between Sukhumvit Soi 62/3 and Soi 64, 02-741-4718-21 ext 2001-2005. Open daily 8:30am-5pm. www.ibaf.co.th
Actually run by the Ministry of Education, IBAF offers professional cooking and bakery lessons for those who want to take their kitchen skills seriously. The cooking classes include European, Chinese, catering and hors d'oeuvres while the bakery lessons cover pies and pastries, basic cake baking and cake decorating. But perhaps more useful for those who have aspirations of running a restaurant or cafe is the fact that IBAF offers the service of a business consultant after you’ve completed the courses.

Hua Zeng Hong

3039 Sukhumvit Soi 101, 02-730-5141-2. Open daily 10am-10pm. www.huasenghong.co.th
One of the top Chinese places in town, it’s worth the trek to try their small Chinese set for six-seven persons (B1,900) or a Together Meal set for two people (B415). If you want to party then their private room holds up to 100 people with karaoke (of mostly Chinese songs of course). A big plus is their delivery service which has an impressive selection of dishes. The desserts are from the bakery next door, Mu-i.

Mu-i Bakery

3039 Sukhumvit Soi 101, 02-730-5141-2 Open daily 7am-9pm. www.mu-ibakery.com
This cute little spot looks to offer a bit of everything baked from bread sticks and egg tarts to cheesecakes and meringues. Highlights include the popular crepe cake with strawberry sauce (B69) and the chocolate fudge cake (B69). As they sit next door to Hua Zeng Hong, they often join forces to do catering which is probably why you can also pick up yummy dim sum here.

The Room

Sukhumvit Soi 62, 1198 ext 11. www.lh.co.th
The Room combines two 23-story buildings offering a total of 487 units with one and two-bedroom options to choose from. One bedrooms start from 45 sq meters while two bedrooms are around 88 sq meters (B90,000 per sq meter). Facilities include a swimming pool, fitness center, reading room, mini-mart and laundry service. It is also just a few steps from the BTS.

Under the ISO’s goals, venues are encouraged to combine profit, people and the planet in a way that is truly sustainable. Here's why you should pick these five ISO 20121-certified venues for your next conference.
