A little over 20 years ago Muang Thong Thani only held a very wealthy neighbourhood around Bond Street, mostly Chinese Thai families residing in multimillion villas.
No businesses or attractions were present. Except Bond Street, which is only a small part of MTT, the rest of the land was practically undeveloped.
It was in the early 90’s that Bangkok Land ltd. starting buying up huge plots with the aim of making a community project. Their aim was to build up the infrastructure enough to support both the Popular and Lakeside condominium areas along with the burgeoning business areas.
