A walk along Silom Road from Sala Daeng BTS station to Silom Village encapsulates a microcosm of Bangkok life. Traffic noise, fumes, food smells, crowds and color accost the senses. Stalls selling t-shirts, cushion covers, masks, scarves, watches and souvenirs line the pavement, while shopping malls jostle for attention with spas, massage parlors, banks, tailors, travel agents and food outlets of all kinds. Here office workers mingle with tourists, and shoppers eat at noodle stalls, Mexican restaurants, British pubs or five star hotels according to taste. Silom Village is worth a stop if you still have the energy at the end of the walk.
