Relaunch of Bangkok’s Leading News & Reviews Website

Bangkok’s local news and reviews website Coconuts Bangkok has launched a re-developed and re-designed version to the delight of many local readers.

The new version of the site, dubbed Coconuts 2.0, features a user review function where anyone can create a profile, write a review of a local Bangkok business, and give it a rating out of five coconuts. Business owners can also create Coconuts profiles for their bar, restaurant, salon, etc. to be reviewed by users, and submit events to be included in the events section.

Coconuts Bangkok will continue to run the type of hyperlocal Bangkok editorial content that readers have come to enjoy – a mixture of original reporting, translated stories from the Thai press, and aggregated content from other news outlets (always cited) – in addition to the new user reviews section.

Some of the most popular Coconuts stories since its inception have included:
