Din Daeng and Huai Khwang blend so seamlessly together that it's difficult to tell where one neighborhood ends and the other begins. The areas share urban sentiments in a suburban setting, allowing their residents to feel far away from the frenzy of the city without feeling removed from its energy. Malls, massage parlors, and markets prevail in the area, but what's most surprising is Din Daeng/Huai Khwang's ever-evolving nightlife scene—some of Bangkok's best DJs spin along Royal City Avenue.See places to stay Save this neighborhood
