Local Area & Attractions

Chic is the Style

Attractive, fashionable, stylish. Our neighbourhood is certainly colourful. The vibrant nightlife appeals across genders. Art is also out in the open as well as curated in eye-opening galleries. And Little Tokyo is the last word in Japanese ease. Your key card unlocks it all.

Bangkok Skyline

Thailand Creative & Design Center (TCDC) is a collaboration with Le Méridien Bangkok that promotes Thai designers on the international market. An extension of the idea that your room key also unlocks experiencing Bangkok, TCDC gives you the opportunity to engage with modern and contemporary art through permanent collections, temporary exhibitions, and educational programs.

Charoen Krung is considered a creative district for good reason. Many arts access points can be found here. Soi Charoen Krung 32 is decorated with murals by Thai and international taggers. Among them are masterpieces such as the three-eyed kid by Alex Face, a funky bear character by Bonus TMC, mysterious-looking portraits by Kult, and spray-painted art by Lolay. More tantalising Thai and international art discoveries await at galleries on Soi Charoen Krung 28 and 30.

Presenting a wide range of contemporary art, design, music, theatre + film, Bangkok Art and Cultural Centre is the hub of the city's burgeoning art scene. A few minutes' walk from National Stadium BTS Skytrain station, BACC hosts a steady succession of exhibitions featuring some of the leading Thai and international artists of the day. The eclectic array of arts activities is arranged with a view to stimulating art appreciation. All are welcome to explore.

When the sun goes down, Bangkok transforms into the liveliest city imaginable in an explosion of lights, food + drink, music and dance. It’s time to enjoy an eye-opening dinner cruise along the river, admire the skyline from rooftop bars, savour street food in Chinatown + explore vibrant night markets such as the most famous one of all, Patpong Night Market, just across the road. Bangkok is also renowned as LGBTQ-friendly destination especially celebrated for its nightlife and festivals.

The heart of Bangkok’s Japanese shopping, dining + nightlife scene, Soi Thaniya is located right next to one of the busiest BTS Skytrain stations, Saladaeng. Thaniya complex houses multiple golf shops and much more. After sunset, the street is ablaze with neon signs. Izakaya, Ramen, Yakiniku, Sushi, Karaoke + more. It’s also a great spot for traditional Thai massage.

Neilson Hays Library is a throwback to the earliest days of international travel, beginning in 1869 when the library was established by Bangkok Ladies' Library Association. The main building of the present library, beautifully designed by an Italian architect, Mario Tamagno. Nowadays the atmospheric wood-clad interior accommodates an astonishing 20,000 books. A newer, glass-walled Garden Cafe and Gallery offers local and western food and drink run by the neighbouring British Club along with regular art exhibitions.

Bangkok's Street Food Scene

Cultured is the Content

Eat, pray, explore. Bangkok’s bountiful street food scene is at its most local in nearby Silom, Charoen Krung and, especially, Chinatown (Yaowarat). Similar might be said of our nearest temple, a spiritually-charged shrine to Siva’s queen. Call it culture at its un-curated best and simply be thankful for it.

City of Bangkok View

Locally named Wat Maha Uma Devi or simply Wat Khaek, this is Bangkok’s most popular Hindu temple. The word “khaek" refers to people of Indian and Middle Eastern origins, or simply means “guest”. The temple was built in 1879 as a reminder of his South Indian culture and beliefs. The annual highlight is the 10-day Navratri Festival in September/October, concluding with the temple being bedecked with yellow flowers, garlands and candles, and the area blocked off for the procession.

With its warren of shophouse eateries, posh restaurants and street-side stalls, Bangkok’s Chinatown is a haven for food lovers, and not just Chinese food. From spicy, sweet ‘n’ sour Pad Kee Mow, to stir-fried noodles with basil leaves, to rich Massaman Curry, and the definitive Thai Chicken Rice, there’s something to transport every taste bud. Moreover, the colourful bustle makes for a perfect place to people watch. Don’t leave without dessert such as the famous Mango Sticky Rice.

Another foodie temptress is Charoen Krung, the historic road running along the river. Again, there’s a rich mix of boutique restaurants, local eateries and casual street stalls to tempt you. Some freshly-made Som Tam, Thailand’s iconic green papaya salad, is a perfect entrée to the experience, with or without chillies. Vegetarians are also well catered-to with meat-free fried rice, noodle soup, and flavourful curries. Meander a stretch of the strip, grazing a diversity of courses and immersing in local colour.

As Bangkok’s original central business district, Silom, the next road over from the hotel, boasts an extraordinary selection of restaurants and eateries. Stroll over to the Silom street food scene is particularly appetizing, both at lunch time when the office crowd must be fed and in the evening when socializing is uppermost in mind. Soi Convent, beside the BTS Sala Daeng station, is particularly renowned for its Thai specialties.

Places to Explore in Bangkok

Discovery Is the Benefit

Uncover, discover + elevate your experience. This part of Bangkok bristles with places to explore. Feel like a guest in a private Thai house. Survey the city limits from 78 floors in the highest building of town. Shop till you drop from the street market into a night spot. Or simply jog across Bangkok’s greenest lung.

Bangkok skyline at night, lit by its several skyscrapers and the lamps and cars of its busy streets.

Bangkok Discovery – Surawong Road

Surawong Road is another key central business district artery alongside Silom and Sathorn. Stretching from Charoen Krung and the river via Sirat Expressway ramps to Rama IV Road, Surawong reveals a rich haul of shops, bars, restaurants, hotels and places of interest. At two points, the road spills into Bangkok’s original, though nowadays increasingly gentrified, red light district with its vibrant night market but there is so much more to it than that. A little adventurousness is always well-rewarded. It’s hard to imagine that Surawong Road was once rice fields, sugarcane fields and vegetable gardens. Some European-style houses were built during that time. Later, in the reign of King Prajadhipok, Surawong Road, was a significant area for welcoming high-class foreigners and royals. Nowadays the string of upscale restaurants extends into Yaowarat (Chinatown) and adjacent Si Phraya Road and Surawong is considered a prime business district that includes Silom and Sathorn.

Jim Thompson House

Jim Thompson House is the former home of the man credited with revolutionizing the Thai silk industry but who mysteriously disappeared in Malaysia in 1967. A man of great taste and an avid collector, he left behind this beautiful Thai teak house assembled from several old houses, complete with tasteful artworks and antiques. Visitors from all over the world continue to be enchanted by it. A 10-minute walk from BTS National Stadium station.

Baan Batt’ Alms Bowl Community

“Baan Batt” or ‘Monk’s Bowl Town’, is famous for producing hand-crafted monk’s bowls using traditional techniques handed down through generations. Durable and produced in various shapes, the quality of each bowl is premium. An 11-minute walk from MRT Sam Yod station.

Mahanakhon Building

Enter the new architectural landmark in the heart of Bangkok’s CBD beside Chong Nonsi BTS station. A place where luxury meets privilege, the 78-story mixed-use home to the Ritz-Carlton Residence, King Power Retail and Duty-Free is Thailand’s tallest building. With its distinctive pixilated form, it’s worth visiting for King Power Mahanakhon SkyWalk, a state-of-the art observation deck boasting the city’s most epic views at 314 metres, alone. Arguably the most significant example of contemporary architecture in Thailand.

M.R. Kukrit Heritage Home

M.R. Kukrit Pramoj was a venerable and colourful Thai politician, scholar and professor. A great-grandson of King Rama II, he acted alongside Marlon Brando in The Ugly American movie (1963). A man of great taste, the home he started creating in 1941 is as eloquent an expression of Thai heritage as can be found. The 0.8-hectare plot hosts five traditional Thai timber houses set amid lush gardens studded with shady trees. A 20-minute walk from BTS Chong Nonsri station.

Samyan Mitrtown

Stroll 05 minutes from Le Méridien Bangkok to explore a popular place for Thai teenagers, Samyan Mitrtown, a shopping, office, residential and leisure development. Mitr means “friendly” in Thai. As its next to Chulalongkorn University, its array of affordable restaurants, cute stationery shops, trendy boutiques, a state-of-the-art movie theatre, and around-the-clock cafés seek to attract a broad cross- section of the population and, of course, visitors.

Beautiful Jog Around Bangkok

Discovery Run Route

Let’s go with the flow and discover some greenery around central Bangkok. Start with a 5 km route or venture further afield with a 12 km jog.

MRT Silom

The cosmopolitan heart of Bangkok.

Lumpini Park

Spanning almost 58 hectares, Bangkok’s first public park was created on royal land by King Rama VI in the 1920s. At its heart is a giant lake with its own island. A popular afternoon activity involves hiring a rowing or paddle boat and navigating the interlocked expanses of water surrounded by lush grass and mature trees and plants. Others prefer to make use of the public outdoor gym, or take in a keep fit activity in the morning or evening, from aerobics classes to Tai Chi, or simply join the steady stream of joggers and walkers.

Benjakitti Park

Opened in 2004 in honour of Queen Sirikit’s 72nd (6th auspicious 12-year cycle) birthday, Benjakitti Park can be accessed from three stations: Queen Sirikit National Convention Centre MRT station, Sukhumvit MRT station, and Asok BTS Station. This park also wends around a picturesque late but its most unique attribute is being Bangkok’s first forest park. Run one complete circuit then jog back to the hotel.

Have fun, whichever run.
