This upscale area comprises the famous roads of Langsuan, Chidlom, Wittayu, Ploenchit and Ruamrudee, bordering the north side of Lumphini Park.
Around Ploenchit and Chidlom BTS stations you will find a range of high-end office towers, hotels, residences and shopping malls, and some of the largest embassies and ambassador’s residencies (USA, Japan, UK, etc.).
From a real estate point of view, the neighborhood is very popular with diplomats, executives, business travellers and wealthy tourists. It is however a rather quite area, not very exciting after work and during weekends. Although it is very central, hence the convenience for short-term stays, expats will often favor Sukhumvit or Sathorn areas when it comes to finding their long-term accommodation.
