Bangkok - Soi Ari 1

soi ari 1 snapshots

Soi Ari 1 displays a crazy mix of a takeway salad bar, instagrameable tiny cafés and bakeries which are highly popular among Asian tourists; blending seamlessly with the traditional Thai spots, selling fresh fruit, juice and Thai fare - the old lady that lives in the open house right in the corner is 100% Thailand. Hidden on the other side of Noble Red, there is a small square with few cafés, shops and nail salon. A bit further down the road, some interestin bars await, like Frank Mansion.

This street was very determinant when making up my mind to live here. Seeing all these cafés and little stores remided me so much of our old street in Daikanyama from the moment I set a foot there... That deep in my heart I realized, this is the neighorhood for me.

Soi Ari 1, el hit entre los turistas Asiáticos i.e. gente joven-cool de Singapore, Korea o Japón, no el grupo de plastas con turista-paragüas-en-alto, ofrece una mezcla interesante, de chiringuitos tradicionales, tienduchas de ropa y instagram-friendly cafés y pastelerías, así como una salad bar para llevar. Escondido en la acera frente a Noble RED hay un pequeño patio con algunos cafés y tiendecitas monas. Un poco más adelante hay unos cuantos bares que merecen la pena, como Frank Mansion.

De hecho esta calle es la primera que vi en el barrio, cuando visité el primer apartamento de todos en Noble RED. Ver todos esos cafés y sitios cucos, me recordó muchísimo a nuestra calle en Daikanyama con lo que de alguna forma, fue amor a primera vista...
