Welcome to Charoen Nakhon Soi 10, a tranquil and serene neighbourhood that awakens with the gentle touch of sunlight, unveiling a vibrant tapestry of businesses that come alive like flowers in bloom. As the stillness of the night gives way to a new day, the soft movements of doors opening and the quiet footsteps of people moving about break the silence. The aromatic fragrance of freshly brewed coffee from the charming cafes fills the air, creating an atmosphere of serenity and calmness. Here, no one is in a rush; the pace is unhurried, and a sense of homeliness envelops every corner. It is the perfect sanctuary to start the day, surrounded by the comforting embrace of this welcoming neighbourhood.
As the day progresses, the vibrant energy of the community unfolds. The talented aunty with her extraordinary culinary skills becomes the alchemist of flavours, conjuring up mouthwatering dishes that tempt our taste buds. Her assistant, with generous portions of fragrant rice, completes the gastronomic symphony. Meanwhile, the whimsical uncle with his noodle cart adds a touch of enchantment, his bell ringing joyfully to announce his arrival, drawing residents and workers alike to savour the delicious offerings, exactly an hour before noon.
Venturing further into the heart of Charoen Nakhon Soi 10, a remarkable discovery awaits in the form of a famous café community - OURS. It is a realm where aesthetics flourish like vibrant flowers in spring, attracting creative minds and influencers who are captivated by its visual wonders. Yet, beneath the surface allure lies a deeper essence that defines our neighbourhood – an atmosphere of warmth and acceptance that permeates every corner. Resting within this creative space is a minimalistic café - SHELTER, that serves as a morning caffeine boost for the dedicated staff of ME GOODY. Here, the intoxicating aroma of truffle sandwiches blends with the air, creating a sensory experience that inspires and invigorates.
In this tapestry of life, a gifted hair stylist weaves his magic, transforming not only appearances but also spirits. With each skilful snip, confidence is nurtured, and self-love blooms at Myy Turn. Amidst the bustling commerce, our neighbourhood offers spaces for leisure and recreation - other than ME GOODY Space. The shade of ancient trees shelters a badminton court, where people of all ages engage in friendly competition and camaraderie, transcending language and age barriers.
But let me confess, the true essence of this extraordinary neighbourhood eludes the grasp of words. It is an intangible magic that dances in the air, creating an energy that can only be felt with the heart. It's in the shared laughter at the local food stalls, the vibrant spirit of the beloved grandma who owns the street, and the moments of stillness savoured at the cafés. Charoen Nakhon Soi 10 is not merely a place; it is an experience, a tapestry of stories waiting to be written.
So, I extend an invitation to join us on this captivating journey, where the real magic unfolds beyond the limitations of language. Discover for yourself the allure of the Soi, where community and belonging flourish, and the essence of this remarkable neighbourhood transcends any description. It is within this captivating embrace that we have found our home, a place where old and new harmoniously coexist, and the vibrant pulse of a community resonates with each passing day. This is why set down the roots for ME GOODY Space here, in Charoen Nakhon Soi 10.

When we talk about travelling to Bangkok, what’s the first thing that comes to your mind? Shopping malls? Food ? Or perhaps Art ? For us it’s the story that this city has to tell. The beauty of Bangkok City is a blend of experience with history, food, architecture, and, more importantly, the diversity of people.
Thailand is globally recognized for being socially acceptable of LGBTQ+ community and when it comes to the diversity of this country, the story of gender-neutral individuals is worth telling. ME GOODY, as an ally, present you Jesse Kim, our gender-neutral protagonist.
“What happened to Jesse?”, the question to answer in Tale of the city
Tale of the City is a fairy tale set in the fictitious Empire of Chakawan that was once a glorious Empire. After the death of the Emperor who left no heir, Augustin and Kim families couldn’t agree on the future of the Empire.
As a solution to an heirless throne, the marriage of Jesse Kim(they/them) and Kiaan Augustin must happen so that they can rule Chakawan together. However, Jesse refuses to live their life the way it was arranged so they left on a journey of self-discovery. The mission is to find out “ What happened to Jesse?”
Tale of the City is our exclusive session. By picking up one of the characters in the story, you will embark on a uniquely creative travel experience around Bangkok. Jesse, as a gender-neutral character, is representing the reality of many LGBTQ+ folks who are still discovering who they really are.

Jesse’s story serves as a powerful reminder to embrace our true identity and inspires us to find the strength within ourselves to break free from society’s expectations. Together, let’s cherish the beauty of diversity with ME GOODY.
