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.
