Sala Daeng, a Microcosm of Bangkok

BY Bridge Estate

Sala Daeng is a business district and upscale neighborhood rolled into one, situated in Upper Silom at the heart of Bangkok. Popular among expats and locals alike, this post neighbourhood is a hub of culture, business and leisure where up-and-coming generations can live in excellence and comfort.


Central Business District

Sala Daeng is the choice of neighbourhood among international diplomats in Bangkok due to its proximity to embassies and consulates of countries around the world. Embassies of Germany, Japan, United States of America, United Kingdom, Singapore, among others, can be found in the neighbourhood. It is also home to many multinational corporations that have offices in Bangkok, attracting top talent from all over the world and Thailand.



Sala Daeng can be considered the Mecca of shopping in Bangkok, home to some of Thailand’s largest shopping malls. Central Embassy, Siam Paragon and Silom Complex are megamalls that house brands from all over the world within their sprawling premises.

From high street and high-end fashion brands such as Hermes, Bottega Veneta, Chanel, Vivienne Westwood to homegrown labels, the shopping district in Sala Daeng is the epitome of style and exclusivity, an luxurious experience in and of itself.



Some of the best hospitals in Bangkok and the whole of Thailand are situated in Sala Daeng. The King Chulalongkorn Memorial Hospital is one of the leading healthcare facilities in Bangkok, home to Thailand’s first automated COVID-19 test system. BNH Hospital, formerly known as Bangkok Nursing Home, is the first private hospital in Thailand, still offering world-class healthcare services. Thailand’s healthcare system has proven to be resilient in the fight against COVID-19, garnering praise from the world for its quick response and well-equipped healthcare professionals and best-in-class facilities.


Green Spaces

Residents of Sala Daeng get the best of both worlds, the convenience and buzz of the city on one side, and the tranquility of sprawling green spaces on the other.

Lumpini Park, spanning more than 140 acres, is an iconic landmark of central Bangkok that rivals Central Park in New York. Filled with an oasis of shady trees and beautiful lakes, the park offers a sanctuary to those looking for a quiet moment away from the bustle of the city.

A day at Lumpini Park is a great way to spend your weekend, with onsite facilities that include paddle boats, playgrounds and basketball courts. Local jazz outfits (sometimes a classical orchestra) are also known to perform at the park on late Sunday afternoons.


Future Development

A fast-growing metropolitan district, Sala Daeng will be seeing more large-scale, innovative developments that will increase the value of the already prime location. Large mixed-use developments located around Sathorn and Silom, such as One Bangkok, are scheduled to be completed within the next 5-7 years. This seismic transformation of the district will increase the investment value of the district, making it highly desirable among investors.

Situated in the center of the district, SC Asset’s SALADAENG ONE is one of the few addresses to offer a freehold residence with a staggering view of the historical Lumpini Park, and easy access to the best of Bangkok.
