I wonder how it would be go grow up with the last name “Patpong” or “Nana”. Guess if you’re loaded .. who cares. Or ask Lek Nana.
Nana is actually split into two, and the South Nana of beers and bargirls is a world away from North Nana and its “Soi Arab,” with Middle Eastern restaurants and shops that make up a sort of separate country within Bangkok.
Much of the land on which North Nana and “Soi Arab” now rests belonged to one family: the Nana family, a prominent business clan with Middle Eastern roots.
