Cool things to do in Chula-Samyan
Love it or hate it, Samyan has been given a makeover. The neighborhood where the main campus of Chulalongkorn University lies used to be a decaying, long-forgotten area that was home to ancient grocers, old street food stalls, and ramshackle auto parts stores. But because of the university’s efforts, walkways and spaces have been decluttered, empty shophouses have been refashioned into vibrant galleries and eateries, and a massive public park designed by award-winning architects has been installed. Old street food joints were reassembled and now line Ban Tad Thong, making the road a new cheap eats destination.
