PHROM PHONG

From high-end malls to secondhand bookstores, Phrom Phong is the center of life in Bangkok for Japanese expats, high-end shoppers and international foodies. The leafy side sois in the neighborhood offer respite from the city’s sun as well as spacious condos, luxurious spas and local newspapers printed exclusively in Japanese. The Sukhumvit part of the neighborhood boasts Emporium and Emquartier luxury malls.
