La Villa: Ari’s coolest contradiction
Phaholyothin Road, BTS: Ari
When La Villa opened in Ari, Bangkok’s coolest, trend-setting neighborhood, it was the talk of the area. Thonglor snob culture in Ari?
Sure, La Villa's got the symbolic stores of a community mall, like iStudio and Greyhound café. But thanks to an open-air layout that lets shoppers witness Ari life zipping by, it has become one of the most leisure spots in Bangkok.
The three-floor mall is packed with restaurants, shops, a supermarket and the unavoidable Starbucks. With easy access to the Ari BTS station, La Villa is a great place to take a break from the city center mayhem.
