Khet Pathum Wan, Bangkok, Thailand
The Ploenchit neighbourhood is marked by large office blocks and shiny new shopping malls, which run all the way along Ploenchit Road. This long road also features a large number of luxury condos for rent in Ploenchit as well as hotels and restaurants. This area is popular with both tourists and residents of Bangkok who want to do a spot of shopping or gain easy access to the area’s offices and other businesses. On the surface it looks as though Ploenchit is mainly a business district. However, the neighbourhood’s central location and the fact that there are a lot of condos for rent in Bangkok here mean that it is also home to a large expat community.
