There is something new to look forward to in Bangkok this year with the opening of a new MRT station in Dragon Temple which is the Wat Mangkon subway station. It is expected to open this coming September and many businesses have already commissioned a Bangkok recruitment agency to help them hire new workers as they expect the influx of more visitors as soon as the area becomes more accessible.
The new station is located at Bangkok Chinatown’s back alley which means the public will be able to explore the area easier. This will all come to fruition if the subway station opens within the expected month. The station is part of the extension of the Blue Line and was originally planned to open three years ago.
According to one of the business owners in the area, the department in charge of the construction has been promising the opening of the station every year for the last three years but all those promises were broken.
Chinatown is home to authentic Chinese street food which is why many are lured to the area. Here are the top spots worth visiting once the subway station opens.
- First on the list is the Jing Jing Ice Cream Bar &Café which was launched in July of 2017. The owner ChutinatThasananuphan is proud of their homemade ice cream which is famous all over Chinatown. This is the only ice cream shop that was established in the area.
- When it comes to coffee, Baan 2459 Chata Specialty Coffee is the place to go in Chinatown. The business started in August of 2017 by accident, according to the owner. SuksanAueareechon originally rented the space as a warehouse for shoes but after seeing its potential, it was refurbished into a boutique hotel with a coffee shop.
- Baan Rim Nam is known in Chinatown as a private dining space located at the 15th level of an apartment. It has a breath-taking view of the Chao Phraya River. The restaurant’s name is Nang Gin Kui but it has been known to locals as Baan Rim Nam because of its location beside the Chao Phraya River.
With the growth of tourism in Chinatown, a Bangkok recruitment agency revealed that many businesses are always looking for additional manpower to meet the demand of the crowd.
