TCDC Bangkok is located on Charoenkrung Road, which was Bangkok’s first road built using modern construction methods between 1862–1864 in the reign of King Mongkut (Rama IV) to serve the fast-growing community of foreign traders on the eastern bank of the Chao Phraya River. It runs from the old city centre in Rattanakosin Island, passes through Bangkok’s Chinatown, continues into Bang Rak District, where it formerly served the community of European expatriates, and ends in Bang Kho Laem. The area consists of beautiful architecture – especially from the colonial era, a community of mixed cultures and is a growing space for artistic creation with many art galleries.
