Despite the lack of any major tourist attractions,
this lively neighborhood is a favorite of many.
Whether it's the (somewhat naughty) nightlife of Soi
Patpong, the various handicraft night markets or the
plethora of dining options that tickle your fancy, a
night out in Silom is a must on every itinerary. It's
worth a stop during daytime, too: join office workers
on a quest to tasty street food during lunch and shop
at Silom Complex for a great mix of Thai and
international stores. After a day of strolling around
the congested sidewalks, a visit to Silom's Lumphini
Park, Bangkok's answer to NYC's Central Park, is a
welcome change of scenery.
