Top Attractions in Sathorn – Discovering Enchanting Bangkok

There are plenty of fun things to do in Sathorn if you have free time on your hand. You can join in many courses and activities and visit some of Bangkok's most prominent sites.


Christ Church

According to history after an influx of protestant missionaries in early to middle of the 19th Century, King Rama IV donated a land for a church building to be erected to serve the missionaries in Charoenkrung Road. Later when the church believers began to grow and the building was not sufficient for their services, King Rama V gave permission in 1904 for a much larger and centrally located church to be built. This beautiful and pleasant white coloured Anglican Church located on Convent Road is a simple gothic and colonial style blended building that any tourist would admire from a distance. Its interior is painted white as well and decorated with stained glass windows depicting Christ's crucifixion. Thailand's only pipe organ is found here. The services are conducted in both Thai and English.


Lumpini Park

Lumpini Park is a peaceful inner-city paradise with fresh air and plenty of shelter and a great sanctuary for many species of birds. This is a superb way for the city dwellers to connect with nature. The park has been named after the birth place of Lord Buddha and spans more than half a million square kilometres which is quite an impressive stretch for a park at such a magnitude in size. It is a natural habitat for flora and fauna of different kinds and dates back to the 1920s when it was originally meant to be an exhibition centre for Thai crafts and flower displays. Lumpini Park is located on Rama IV Road, Pathumwan and those in search of a Bangkok city hotel within easy reach of this charming area can consider options such as Chatrium Residence Sathon Bangkok.


M. R. Kukrit's Home

M. R. Kukrit Pramoj was Thailand's Prime Minister from 1974 to 1975 and his lovely home on Soi Suan Phlu was a prominent feature and focus of national politics during times of commotions with hoards of journalists flocking outside the house. The Kukirt 80 Foundation has now declared it opened for public to visit and to enjoy seeing the elegant house of this popular intellectual leader of Thailand. It is much more than a museum as it bears testimony to his talents not only as a politician but also as a writer, poet and artist. There are five traditional teak houses supported on stilts which are a genius work of the former prime minister with many antiques and fine treasures carefully placed on display.


Vertigo Rooftop Bar

Reach for the heavens through the misty clouds at the rooftop located on the 61st floor of Vertigo Rooftop Bar. The spectacular sky-riser is a fantastic way to end a long stressful day spent in Bangkok. Even though there are plenty of rooftop bars found in Bangkok, Vertigo has always stood out as a popular choice. The top of the building is designed in an unusual narrow and elongated shape which gives the top of the building a look of a spaceship floating in the sky that makes it stand out from the rest of the buildings around. The top floor of the building is fully occupied by the bar and restaurant. You can experience a breath-taking view of Bangkok laid out below from the terrace on the 60th floor.
