Dubbed “The Wall Street of Thailand”, this is the nation’s financial beating heart. As such, it’s a bustling district filled with skyscrapers and suited workers. It encompasses what used to be the city’s trade quarter, Bang Rak, a riverside area known for its proliferation of fancy hotels. And a small pocket, from Silom Road to Surawong Road, transforms after dark, into one of the capital’s most vibrant and cosmopolitan neighbourhoods, with an added reputation as a red-light district. A Skytrain, a metro station and a pier within Silom make it quick and easy to reach.
