Bangkok most trendy neighbourhood.

Ploenchit is an ever-growing and fast-changing neighbourhood in Bangkok that stretches from Sukhumvit to the Siam areas. Ploenchit was a rather anonymous part of Bangkok for a long time, best known for the many embassies lined up along Wireless Road (US, Netherland and Japan), a few skyscrapers (CRC Tower) but also famous for the immense Lumpini Park.

Shopping in Ploenchit

Beyond the immense embassies, Ploenchit is home to a growing number of shopping malls. Among the oldest are the slowly vanishing Amarin Plaza and Erawan. Central Chidlom managed to stay in trend, especially since it connects to its luxury sibling Central Embassy. Gaysorn, just opposite CentralWorld (in the Siam area), has recently been renovated and gained a second life. The gigantic ‘Bangkok One’ promises to take the Bangkok shopping experience to a new level next to Lumpini Park.

The Rooftops

Bangkok seems to have such a passion for rooftops that no new tall building would miss the opportunity to join the race. There are just a few in Ploenchit: Speakeasy at The Muse Langsuan, Char at Indigo Hotel on Wireless Road, Bar.Yard at Kimpton Hotel on Tonson street and Sindhorn Midtown also on Langsuan. The Japanese Okura hotel also features two rooftops, but most people miss them because they seem so exclusive, and one is part of a restaurant. There is a very high rooftop at Grand Hyatt Hotel above Central Embassy, but the tall glass walls make it difficult to enjoy significant views.
