For the second episode of Thailand Tatler Heroes, we take you inside the housing units in Klong Toey district. Known for its communities and the youngsters with a knack for football (and a talent to match), we partnered with real estate developer AP Thailand for a fun afternoon mission.
Apart from getting teenage heartthrob Peach Pachara Chirathivat on the team, the episode also features one very special football field. So, what’s so special about our tournament venue? Besides gaining a spot on TIME magazine’s 25 Best Inventions of 2016 list, the idea behind AP Thailand’s sports field is to revitalise community spaces by reimagining untended areas for better functionality to better suit a wider range of leisure purposes. From what was once a vacant L-shaped lot, the AP team was able to repurpose the space into an afterschool hangout spot for the local kids.
You can witness the innovative space at play on the next episode of Thailand Tatler Heroes, airing Saturday, Dec. 17 at 10:40pm on MCOT HD and ModernineTV. Don’t forget to cheer for our football stars!
