Meeting Ethan and Mayu at Lhong 1919 (พบอีธานกับมายูที่ Lhong 1919)

While chatting with our new friend Ethan, he mentioned a new project that involved reconstruction of old warehouses and a Chinese shrine dating back to King Rama IV. It sounded interesting, so we decided to meet up there and have dinner.

The riverfront mixed-used project is a new destination for Bangkok residents and travellers hankering for an outdoor venue at which to spend money on handcrafted products from a number of locally-owned shops.

The varied product offerings ensure that this will be a favourite shopping destination of moneyed hipsters. Zettino provides men’s leather goods, Hummingbird sells beautifully decorated plants, and Studio is showcasing Chinese design-inflected furniture.

Owned and developed by the Wanglee family, one of the country’s oldest Thai-Chinese tycoon families, Lhong 1919 sits on the old pier where, according to old journals, the ancestors of most Thai-Chinese families first set their feet in Thailand after migrating from China.
