Klong Toei (also Klong Toey, คลองเตย) is a district in central Bangkok, bordered by the Chao Phraya River. The westbound of Sukhumvit belongs to it, but also a slum, where poor workers live, many working at the port. So Klong Toei has luxury shopping centers like Emporium as well as a cheap food market. The Duang Prateep Foundation and the Human Development Foundation of Father Joe are working for a better life in the slums.
