The Bangkok Art & Culture Centre, more commonly known by its abbreviated form, BACC, somewhat put the Bangkok art scene on the map, as it was built back when the city was really a backwater for contemporary and cutting edge modern art. These days, it's a magnet for the burgeoning Thai art community and hosts regularly changing film, photography, and other art exhibitions. Almost all of the displays throughout the multi-story building are free, and it's one of Bangkok's better places to spend a rainy day wandering around and not spending anything, although you most likely will be tempted to have a cup of the city's best coffee at the master brewing Gallery Drip cafe, which is located on the ground floor of the BAAC. The building itself is also intriguing, circular and set around an atrium, with plenty of glass and light. It's access directly off the National Stadium BTS station is also an added plus, meaning you can avoid the city traffic, heat, and smog to get here.
- Free Things to Do: "Take the BTS Skytrain to National Stadium, where an exit leads directly to the BAAC. Check their website or Facebook page for changing exhibition information."
- Best for Free Things to Do Because: For modern art, photography, and film all in one cool building, the admission-free BACC is a top city art choice.
