Wondering why the street is called “Wireless Road”? You’ll easily find the answer once you enter Hotel Indigo Bangkok Wireless Road thanks to the sprawling street art murals on the walls. The showcase of various radio types pay tribute to Wireless Road’s history as the home of the first radio stations in Bangkok.
Ever seen street art that uses only high contrast two colours? Head to Thanon Surawong at the heart of Bangrak Road just 15 minutes from Wireless Road and cast your eyes on a magnificent piece that’s painted entirely in gold on black. Titled Sovann Macha and painted by Greek artist Fikos, this work depicts a popular Thai folklore about a mermaid princess who fell in love with a deity. She is also known as a symbol of good luck and is often placed in shops and houses.

Craving for that splash of colour in street art? Venture a little further from Bangrak Road and you’ll be treated to a palette of colourful street art by foreign artists, reflective of cosmopolitan Bangkok. This area boasts the main collection of Bangkok’s street art and is home to Bansky-style murals by Korean artist Kim Daehyun to larger-than-life caricatures by Romanian artist Saddo. Another reason it’s worth visiting – there are many small art galleries where you could even pick up a few choice pieces home.
