This business district can feel like Hong Kong or Singapore thanks to its mix of towering office buildings and swanky bars. But its small sois are full of surprises, too.


Where to start your day all across the city.
Sathorn Unique Tower
Sathorn Unique, the 47-story unfinished building on Charoenkrung Road dubbed “Ghost Tower” since its abandonment during the Tom Yam Kung economic crisis of 1997, has long been a drawcard for adventurous travelers. Twenty years later, Pansit Torsuwan, 46, the low-profile owner of the building, has finally come out to put a stop to trespassing on the property. With Museum Siam just unveiling an exhibition dedicated to the financial crisis, Pansit defends the tower from accusations it’s a monument to the country’s failure.
Whether urban playground or unwanted monument of the 1997 financial crisis, the unfinished Sathorn Unique tower still looms large on the Bangkok skyline.
