Bangkok’s latest riverside venue is located on the Thonburi side of the Chao Phraya River in an area named Khlong San, home to some of the first Chinese settlers in Thailand.
Lhong 1919 is a riverside lifestyle space; a former warehouse that was reclaimed and renovated. The warehouses were originally used by Chinese traders who settled in Thailand over a number of years. The site is also home to an ancient Chinese shrine dating back to the reign of King Rama IV (1851-1868). Those who visit the area can try their luck at making an offering to bring health and happiness.
The newly renovated site boasts over 6,000 square meters of co-working space, with lively restaurants and art and design shops spotlighting the work of young Thai artists. This new riverfront establishment is a hip destination for tourists and locals seeking an outdoor venue, to spend a lazy afternoon or evening enjoying local crafts and cuisine. At present, the public pier on the riverside is not officially opened, so visitors are required to plan their visit in advance – Destination Asia Thailand can make all the necessary arrangements and provide a personal guide to ensure the best experience possible.
