Parinayok is a lovely community adjacent to Nanda Heritage Hotel. This community is more than a hundred years old and has always had a positive relationship with Nanda. In fact, we have Parinayok’s maze-like streets to thank for as an inspiration for the design of our common area.
So what can you expect in this community? Well, first of all, the real Bangkok everyday life. In Parinayok, you will get to see how the local actually live their lives, not just some grumpy looking people in formal clothes trying to squeeze themselves into the already-crammed BTS. And as if that were not enough, Parinayok is also well known for its birdcage making - an art that is becoming less and less easy to see here in Thailand. Be sure to explore this community.

Fortunately within walking distance of Nanda, Nang Loeng is a community and market located in Pom Prap Sattru Phai. Said to be Thailand’s first land market and over a hundred years old, Nang Loeng offers that vintage feel not many places in Bangkok do.
And one cannot recommend Nang Loeng without mentioning its food scene. To Thais, Nang Loeng is famous for its food. There you will be able to find amazing authentic Thai food and desserts. It is essentially a foodie’s heaven.
Apart from eating great food, you can also visit Sala Chaloem Thani (also known as the Nang Loeng Theater), a theater built during the reign of King Rama VI. This theater used to show Thai, Chinese, Indian, and Western films, but stopped doing so in 1993. However, the theater’s old-school architecture is not to be missed.

Wat Saket is slightly less local and more touristy but definitely worth a visit. In a nutshell, this temple is where the Golden Mount is.
Situated on a manmade hill, Wat Saket requires you to climb 344 steps to get to the top. But do not be discouraged by the number - with wide steps, the climb is actually quite easy. Once you get to the top, you will be able to view the beautiful golden chedi at close range. More importantly, you will have a breezy 360-degree view of Bangkok before your eyes!

Although you do not need to, it is recommended to book tickets in advance on the stadium’s official website - just to make sure you are set for your ultimate Muay Thai experience.
