Samyan-Chula is crowned as Bangkok’s coolest neighborhood in 2020 by “Time Out” survey.
Samyan-Chula is the neighborhood around Chulalongkorn University, one of the most prestigious universities in the city, which helps it become an instant hit among locals and travelers alike, thanks to the university’s property agency’s plan to spruce up the area in which ancient grocers, food stalls, and ramshackle auto-part stores used to occupy.
Now that old and cheap eateries and stores are mostly relocated to other surrounding areas such as Ban Tad Tong, Samyan-Chula has seen the emergence of modern undertakings with the likes of mega-complex Samyan Mitrtown—home to a 24/7 book store, an indie film cinema, and a public rooftop garden—and also a horde of new restaurants, cafés, and art galleries. All of these, accordingly, put this neighborhood onto the top of Bangkok’s liveliest scenes.
“Time Out” survey thousands of people around the globe to discover the world’s coolest neighbourhoods: the places that represent the spirit of the greatest cities on earth. These are the places to be for food and fun, art and culture, atmosphere and personality.
