The longest street in Bangkok, Thailand is also one of the longest boulevards in the world: permanently congested with traffic and home to luxurious hotels and restaurants, Sukhumvit Road and its numerous side-streets, also known as Sois, is like a sprawling network of roots, or like a genealogical tree that has different social groups and communities of immigrants on its branches. Sukhumvit Street’s Soi numbers are like a demarkation of status and origin: between Sois 8-28 and 15-39 one will find the more affluent Bangkokians, whereas in Soi 12 resides a large community of Indian expats. Sois 4 and 23 are known for adult entertainment and prostitution, while from Soi 21 upwards there’s a Japanese Town. Not far from there, on Soi 26, travellers can find a well-designed place to work, eat and rest, all under the same roof: OneDay Pause and Forward, a new concept-project that incorporates a hostel, a workspace, a café-restaurant and a flower shop.
Decorated in a style that combines industrial elements and local crafts with a comfy, vintage feel, OneDay features double-height common areas that are amply lit with natural light and filled with live plants, creating a fresh and uplifting atmosphere. Accessible via two different doors, the 24-hour Forward Coworking Space and the more subdued Pause Hostel nicely complement each other, and both have access to the Café Lapin next door where meals are served throughout the day. Tailored for the young professional on the go, the Forward Coworking Space provides amenities such as high-speed internet, working desks and meeting rooms; meanwhile, Pause Hostel offers comfortable accommodation for travellers or other guests, either in the form of dormitories with shared bathrooms or that of private rooms with the option of en suite bathroom. Centrally situated and within walking distance from a Sky Train station, OneDay is an ideal choice for anyone looking to spend a few days in the Thai capital, especially those who like to combine travel with work.
