Geographically sandwiched between the hectic financial district of Silom and the more laidback neighborhoods of Chaophraya, Surasak offers a mix of both worlds (Old and New, Fast and Slow). The area is more peaceful and tranquil compared to its neighbor Chong Nongsi, however it is still a popular residential area for office workers due to its proximity to the business district and more-affordable prices.
On a lifestyle perspective the area is pleasant and Surasak offers a good variety of restaurant and eateries such as Blue Elephant or Chef Man. In terms of shopping it hosts the Bangkok Jewellery Avenue and Bangkok Fashion Outlet. The area is also peppered with popular coffee shops and bars.
