Top 4 Unique Attractions in Sathon – Exploring what makes Sathon such a rare delight

1

Christ Church

Opened back in the nineteenth century, the massive and beautiful Christ Church is a sign of the strong Protestant influence in the area. Affectionately referred to as the "English Church" by the locals, it can be found on Convent Street. Well known for its near-perfect infusion of Gothic and Colonial architecture, the Church features an all-white exterior and eye-catching stained glass windows that create a kaleidoscopic effect. In addition to that, the church has the honour of having the only pipe organ in the city which is also more than a century old. Most 4 star hotels in Bangkok, for example like Chatrium Residence Sathon Bangkok, can organize a tour of the church should you wish to visit the serene premises.

Lumpini Park

Set right in the heart of Sathon, Lumpini Park is a must visit for any visitor to Sathon. The park derives its name from the place of birth of Lord Buddha and is Bangkok's take on the famous Central Park. With one hundred and forty-two acres of lush greenery, the park is a far cry from the rest of Bangkok's chaotic surroundings. Nestled in the midst of office towers and skyscrapers, Lumpini Park is home to a large number of exotic animals and boasts a budding ecosystem. The park has a number of lakes where monitor lizards reside. To experience the park at its best, drop in during the evenings and opt for a bicycle ride around the park. This is definitely an essential experience.

Drop by at M.R. Kukrit's House

The former living space of the distinguished M.R. Kukrit Pramoj, who was also the country's premier at one point, the house is a beautiful location filled with architectural marvels. Consisting of up to five wood houses that have been built upon stilts, the house is said to have taken around two decades to finish. Now turned into a museum in honour of Mr. Kukrit Pramoj, the house has a number of interesting artefacts that are well worth checking out. These artefacts include ancient China, paintings as well as unique furniture. Take a simple walk through the gardens and you will come across a number of rare plants and trees.

Yenak Art Villa

Present along one of Bangkok's many back lanes, the Yenak Art Villa is a must visit for anyone curious about discovering the country's rich culture and history. The art gallery always updates its artwork so there is always something new worth checking out. The main downside is that you will have to set an appointment prior to visiting the art gallery. However, you can always find out when the open house days are and visit the art gallery on such dates. Rest assured, you will be treated to a vibrant atmosphere and beautiful artwork.
