Silom Village Trade Center

This was a visit to Silom Village Trade Center in BKK a few years back. The Silom Village is a small shopping area on Silom Rd. The place has an out door (open) restaurant with live Thai music playing. The dinning tables are arranged in the middle of the village and surrounded by many small shops selling Thai crafts, services or Thai desserts. It seems like a nice place to visit just to see things if you just happen to be near by. The night time or after dark is probably the right time to go.  I do not think the place is for local people to hang out but rather targeted for foreigners or tourists.

The front entrance on Silom Rd.

The buildings inside follow old style wealthy house from about 50 or 60 years ago, I believe.  They create atmosphere of BKK around that era.

The upper floor window. I like the design and  the pink curtains of this window.

It was not crowded at the time or on that day.  That was nice.

This is one of the food stands there attended by very friendly personnel.

This is one of the craft stores there. This store is selling Thai small dolls or statues.

This lady was showing her soap (I think) carving skill.

This nice little man made waterfall and greens created cool refreshing feeling around the area. A nice idea especially for the most warm climate there.

Time to say good bye.

I hope you enjoy a little virtual tour of the place and worth your mouse scrolling efforts. Thank you.

      Thank you very much for coming along. The place is not big but I think it is a good place for just sitting down for dining, relaxing, do small shopping and strolling around/seeing (like me 🙂 ).
