Bangkok - Riverside, Silom & Lumphini (Chapter)
This is the Riverside, Silom & Lumphini chapter from Lonely Planet’s Bangkok guidebook.
The Silom is Bangkok’s de facto financial district, while adjacent Th Sathon is home to many of the city’s embassies. Incongruously, lower Th Silom functions as Bangkok’s lush gaybourhood. The Riverside area is significantly less flashy, and is great for an aimless wander among old buildings.
