In the 1970s, Pratunam was one of Bangkok’s most bustling trading quarters. People from all walks of life flocked into the area for the latest fashion finds. Though its glamour has long vanished, Pratunam’s vibrance has never faded. Standing the test of time at its heart is Indra Regent Hotel, recognized by the repetitive pointy pattern on its facade. The hotel was designed by noted architect Chira Silpkanok who is also responsible for the striking aesthetic of Scala Theater in Siam Square.
