Bangkok offers many different courses for adults, from dance classes to photography classes to cookery classes. Not only is it a great way of learning a new skill in as little as half a day, they can also offer a great way of meeting other expats who share a common interest with you.

A helpful site is Meetup in Bangkok which offers all sorts of different meet-ups and classes depending on your interests. From film buffs, to science events, to web design or wine buffs, it caters for everyone. Alternatively, if you can see a gap, create your own meet up event. You can also network with likeminded people on the Thailand Meet-up Forum.
