Bang Phli has seen tremendous growth in the last decade, and by the looks of it, this is only the start. The district was mainly agricultural with rice patties as its main occupancy, but the construction of the Suwannabhumi International Airport changed this image drastically. The Airport contracted a large population of workers and huge agricultural areas were naturally section off as residential. In the recent years, new condominiums are planned along the Bang Na Trat road. Originally mainly used for transportation it has now seen a rapid growth in construction of gargantuan shopping malls like MEGA Bang Na, and it seems this is just the beginning. A lot of the district has also been converted into industrial areas with many multinational companies who have established factories in the area as well as container storage areas.
Concordian International School, The American School of Bangkok, Verso International School, D-Prep International School, Singapore International School, Thai-Chinese International School, Raffles American International School, Wells International School, and Thailand institute of Nuclear Technology are just some of the well known schools in the area.
Bang Phli is well connected, mainly by the Bang Na Chon Buri Expressway, and Kanchanaphisek Road, better known as Highway 9, and Bangkok Chon Buri New line in the north.
