    The wolf of whiteline

    Guru, Mika Apichatsakol, Published on 03/02/2017

    » If you're a night owl and enjoy the chillaxed creative community of Silom (over Sukhumvit's), then for sure you've been to Whiteline and Safe Room a few times. Opened for two years now, this nightclub/alternative art venue has made a name for itself with standout events like the annual 60 Second Film Festival, which is coming around again in a week.

Indian merchants sailed here in the 5th century, the Chinese came to trade and later to settle, and one of the earliest European travellers were the Portuguese, arriving in Ayutthaya in 1511.
