About Korean Town

Korean Town Sukhumvit Plaza

Originally named Sukhumvit Plaza in 1989 due to its location at the beginning of Sukhumvit Road, Korean Town had no initial association with the term “Korean.” However, as an increasing number of Korean immigrants settled in Thailand and opened restaurants, the area gained popularity. Over time, it earned the official designation of “Korean Town” by the government, recognized as the focal point with the highest concentration of Korean restaurants in Thailand.

Nestled within Sukhumvit Plaza, Korean Town in Bangkok epitomizes cultural fusion, transforming into a vibrant hub catering to the diverse needs of the thriving Korean community in the Sukhumvit area. Revealing its essence through prominent signs, over ten Korean restaurants, a meticulously stocked food mart, a charming shop for snacks and magazines, as well as additional attractions like karaoke establishments, a Korean language book rental shop, and a video rental store, Korean Town provides a comprehensive and immersive experience for both Koreans and the general public.
