The first major lively trade district of its kind in Siam was once located here along Chao Phraya River. And from that time on, it still continues its rich legacy until today. The Legendary Charoenkrung is one of the main roads in the heart of Bangkok today, which runs roughly in parallel to the river. “Charoen Krung Road” literally means the “Road of the Prosperous City.”
Being today one of Bangkok’s modern and ever-bustling business centres, the streets here are never short of liveliness and captivating sights and smells, with strings of street food vendors, restaurants and malls featured throughout the street. With a relaxing stroll down, visitors can find themselves bouncing along all the historical-cultural threads that weave this fascinating part of the city. And with just a short walk from the hotel to the BTS Saphan Taksin, this makes Bangkok’s most popular destinations including Silom, Siam, Chidlom, and China Town much easily accessible.
