Si Lom (or Silom, Thai: สีลม, pronounced [sǐː lōm]; "windmill") is a sub-district and road in Bang Rak District, Bangkok, Thailand. Constructed in 1851 as part of a dyke and irrigation system, Silom Road has become one of Bangkok's most cosmopolitan streets and a major financial centre. It is the home to some of the largest companies in Thailand, including the Charoen Phokphand Group (CP), Bangkok Bank, and a number of insurance and securities firms. Si Lom is sometimes called the "Wall Street of Thailand".
Si Lom station is an MRT Blue Line subway system stop at the Sala Daeng Intersection, where Silom and Ratchadamri Road meet Rama IV. It connects with the Sala Daeng Station on the Silom Line of the BTS Skytrain.
The Hindu Mariamman Temple, also known as Wat Khaek, is in Si Lom.
