Who we are

If you are new to Bangkok, or a long-term resident, and are seeking a way to meet more ladies in a similar situation then do consider joining our group.


We are a friendly and active bunch of international (mostly Expat) women who live in and around the district of Samutprakarn and greater Bangkok.


We get together for coffee mornings, lunches, interest groups and to run local community projects. We organise outings to explore Bangkok and Thai culture together. For many of us, SILC has been our lifeline when starting out in this wonderful but sometimes impersonal city. SILC is here to help you find your feet, make new friends, get support and (should you wish) become involved in the local community. We are a non-profit organisation run by a committee drawn from our membership.


Our members include those with young children, older children, no children and singles, spanning an age range of 20's to 70's.  Members' interests vary from mahjong to netball, shopping to aqua-aerobics, helping support our sponsored pre-schools or simply playing with the kids. We can safely say that there is something for everyone. Whichever school your kids go to, wherever you live and whatever you enjoy, you will find ladies just like you in SILC!


Read the interesting story about how SILC first started over 28 years ago! SILC continues to thrive and we are proud of what it has become today.


We warmly welcome new members, from both Samutprakarn and the greater Bangkok area, and encourage you to contact us!


SILC's Aims and Policies are available to read.
