Sathorn is Bangkok’s central business district, but
here you’ll find much more than international banks
and suited-up office workers. Take a stroll along the
small alleys between the skyscrapers and you’ll find
yourself among Bangkokians living life at a much

I cannot answer your question precisely. The closest MRT line is Chong Nonsi. From there, it is a walking distance as you cross the bridge over Sathorn. The soi will be on the left handside soon after the bridge.
