Silom: Life In The Heart of Cosmopolitan Bangkok

BY Bridge Estate

Known as one of Bangkok’s most cosmopolitan areas, Silom is a place where food, shopping, business and nightlife live in harmony. It is an ideal location for young professionals looking to live in the Central Business District and enjoy the lively culinary and pub scenes, while families find Silom’s vicinity to top schools, parks and shopping centers – as well as its stunning tree-lined neighborhood streets – as major selling factors for moving here.

Silom is filled with charm and character, an intersection where the city’s rich history meets its modern future. Let’s take a look at what makes this neighborhood so special, and why it truly has something for everyone.


An Ideal Location

Silom is one of the most well-connected areas in Bangkok with access to public transportation, major expressways, and even the Chao Phraya River ferry services. 

Both the BTS Sala Daeng and MRT Silom stations are within walking distance from major corporate offices, as well as Silom Complex shopping center and other landmarks in the city.

Silom is also easily accessible by Bangkok’s major thoroughfares including Rama 4 Road and Sukhumvit Road. For those looking to head out of the city, Sathorn Road will take you across the Chao Phraya River and south to Hua Hin for a beach weekend, while the Srirat Expressway and Don Mueang Tollway will lead you to either of Bangkok’s international airports.

For parents with children, Silom is conveniently located within 5 kilometers of some of the city’s top international schools, including St. Andrew’s International School – Sathorn, Shrewsbury International School, Hampton International School and NIST International School. Leading Thai school – St. Joseph Convent School, Assumption College and Chulalongkorn University – are also within the same vicinity.


Eat, Drink and Be Merry

Bangkok is known for its rich culinary scene and Silom is home to some of the city’s most talked about food and restaurants. Whether you prefer a stroll along Soi Convent sampling famed budget-friendly street vendor fare – grilled pork with stick rice, aromatic noodle soups, fresh papaya salad – or an evening in one of the area’s Michelin-star restaurants – Suhring, Sawaan, Nahm – there is always something to tickle your taste buds. 

Silom is also known for its nightlife scene with stunning rooftop bars, nightclubs and award-winning mixologists offering endless opportunities to drink in the city after hours. Vertigo and Sky Bar give way to panoramic rooftop views of the skyline at sunset, while venues like The Commons Saladaeng offer a social headquarters with a variety of eating and drinking options. 

Other must-visit establishments include Kai for a taste of New Zealand, Eats Phayao for a taste of authentic northern Thai and ASEAN cuisine and Tropic City for a night of cocktails at one of the World’s 100 Best Bars.


Easy Living

Silom boasts a variety of must-see landmarks, outdoor parks, cafes and more for those who like to get out of the house and explore on weekends.

Go on a run through Lumpini Park, one of Bangkok’s largest green spaces, or brush up on your culture at Baan Suan Phlu or Thailand Creative & Design Center (TCDC). Take in the sights and smells around Sri Maha Mariamman Temple and its surrounding fresh market, or explore the city from the water via the Chao Phraya Ferry at Saphan Taksin pier.

Shop ‘til you drop at nearby Siam Paragon or Central World malls or try your hand at bartering at Patpong’s vibrant night market. You can even pop across the river to Bangkok’s newest luxury shopping center, Icon Siam.

Do you have guests coming to visit? Some of the city’s most popular hotels are located in and around Silom, including The Sukhothai Bangkok, So Sofitel, W Bangkok, Pullman G, Shangri-la Hotel, Mandarin Oriental, and The Peninsula.

In the near future, your guests will also have the opportunity to experience Dusit Central Park and One Bangkok, two major-scale mixed use projects that are currently under construction that will add even more business, retail, food and medical options to Silom.
