If Asoke has become the place to work and do business, Phrom Phong is now the epicenter of shopping and leisure in Sukhumvit. The area’s BTS Station is connected to the flashy “Emquatier” and “Emporium” Shopping Centers making it a true shopping mecca! This has made the area particularly popular with Bangkok’s Japanese and Korean expat community; Japanese Supermarkets and restaurants catering to these expatriates are in abundance in the area.
However these two venues only represent the tip of the iceberg, as Phrom Phong is actually a maze of crisscrossed Sois (Roads) that create one of Bangkok’s most pleasant neighborhoods. Leisure options from quaint coffee shops, trendy art galleries and modern urban eateries are common sight. It is important to note that Benjakiti Park next to Emporium, offers residents one of the few “public outdoor” spaces in Central Bangkok!
