The Wanglee family, led by Rujiraporn, celebrated the opening of their Sino-Siamese art and culture venue, Lhong 1919, with grandeur. Overlooking the Chao Phraya, Sino Port Company Limited has transformed approximately six rais of land on Khlong San’s Chiang Mai Road, consisting of traditional Chinese architectures and a well-respected shrine, into a community space rich in history and culture. Charmingly bedecked with Chinese mural paintings, the expansive venue houses eateries, a co-working space as well as design and lifestyle shops such as boutique jeweller Lotus Arts de Vivre and aromatic brand Karmakamet.

The event highlighted beautiful performances, including Chinese opera by Ampan Jarensuklab, a mini concert by Vie Trio and a fashion show by WEE brand. Joining the Wanglee family on the night were A-listers such as Kobkarn Wattanavrangkul, ML Piyapas Bhirombhakdi, Nualphan Lamsam, Chadatip Chutrakul, Thipvipa and Charn Srivikorn, Pravesvudhi and Kessuda Raiva, Gunnigar Virojanavat, Patara Sila-on and Thapana Sirivadhanabhakdi—all tastefully dressed in Chinese-themed attires.
