Silom Road is the heart of Bangkok’s financial district. This is where banking corporates and monetary institutions house their office. Sala Daeng Junction is the most upper part of the street; it is easily accessible by BTS and MRT. The bottom end of the road is Charoen Krung Street near the Chao Phraya Riverbank, home to two AccorHotels properties. Also known as Thailand’s Wall Street, the area is famous for some of the city’s best bars and dining venues.
Silom Road is a haven for street food during the day. With an abundance of offices in the area, food stalls thrive daily with hungry office workers. Street food is popular by day, but there is a wide range of mid-scale and upscale dining venues which satisfy even the most demanding foodies and bloggers. One of them is L’Atelier de Joël Robuchon which needs no introduction. Here comes a chance to taste world-renowned delectable experience from Chef Robuchon. Joël Robuchon is the most important French chef since Escoffier. He is famous for having 28 Michelin stars across 20 restaurants around the world. No wonder Bangkok’s select haute cuisine enthusiasts rush to dine there every night.
Silom Road is a mish mash of amazing dining venues and unique bars, but the road is most famous for its Songkran Festival celebrations. Songkran is Thailand’s New Year celebration; it is the busiest day on this side of town. During Songkran Festival, the road turns into biggest outdoor water party in the world. While locals leave the city to visit family and have a quiet holiday, the remaining locals and tourists flood to a three-day long water battle. Tourists come from all over the world just to be a part of these wet and wild activities. To join in the festivities, just check with our concierge for exact dates in April (usually from 13th to 15th of April).
