Stretching from Asoke in the west to On Nut in the East, wedged between Petchaburi Road and Sukhumvit Road, you find the Watthana district of Bangkok. The once quiet neighborhood has turned into and affluent and busy district. Watthana has become a shopping hub with boutique shops, offering luxury fashion and artisanal goods, restaurants serving high end international and thai dining. Known for stylish bistros and cafes in the buzzing Thong Lo district to quiet restaurants down the back streets towards Asoke or Ekkamai, wherever you go, there is something to try or explore. There are cool rooftop bars offer sweeping city views, high-end nightclubs and innovative cocktail bars.
Watthana still has a quiet feel to it as a residential area, even though there is plenty going on. You really have no need to go anywhere else. Great shopping, schools, top hospitals, you name it; Watthana has everything you need. A high Japanese population has seen a rise in anything from amazing Japanese restaurants, grocery stores to Japanese second hand stores. Watthana is a great area if you like to walk around as traffic is not as busy as most places in Bangkok.
Watthana is also very central, is easy to get around wherever you need to go. Sukhumvit road has the sky train, taking you wherever you need to go, and Petchaburi road gives easy access by car. You even have the public ferry taking you quickly past the Bangkok traffic on the Saen Saep Canal.
Whether a townhouse or a condo / apartment in a skyscraper is your want or need, Watthana has it all. It is considered one of the wealthiest residential neighborhoods in Bangkok with probably the densest concentration of metropolitan mansions in Bangkok, so whatever your property needs are, you will find it in the bast neighborhood Bangkok has to offer.
