Dear Matt and Mar,
[Nov. 2017] I think this was back in November of last year too, Lhong 1919 is the latest riverside development, reclaimed from old warehouses and shrine (dating back to King Rama IV (1851 - 1868), their strategy was to kept the original style and mix in with the modern lifestyle shops (mix used), from co-working space, restaurant, cafe and so on.
The only reason we were here because my parents were here only a day earlier, and they said it was quite interesting, plus the location is on the route to our home, it was no harm in trying to pop in... and we weren’t disappointed :-)
At the start it was a bit of a touch and go, as usual for any new places in BKK, the amount of people was overwhelming, of course my only concern was parking, we weren’t that desperate to visit this place, so if there was no parking space we were going to head home.
The car park was as expected, full to the brim, we (actually, I) wanted to leave as soon as I saw the queue leading into the carpark, but the road was too small for one of my perfect 3 point turn, lol, so ended up having to go into the carpark just to turn around. Just by luck, as we were making our way around the carpark, one of the vehicle pulled out :-)
I was so glad we had the opportunity to come here, although the development wasn’t quite finished yet but we still had great fun, at the end I could see it being a place one can take one’s overseas guest for dinner, although can’t comment if the restaurants there were any good though :-).
