TCC Group was established by Mr. Charoen Sirivadhanabhakdi and Khunying Wanna Sirivadhanabhakdi in 1960. Through gradual, continuous expansion and improvement, the enterprise evolved into the dynamic group it is today. There are five divisions within TCC Group: beverages, retail, finance & insurance, agri-industry and real estate.

The real estate division began by investing in land. Out of this, in 1994, came Imperial Hotel Group and a joint venture with Capital Land Co., Ltd. in 2003. The operation transformed into a full-fledged real estate enterprise named TCC Land Group. Today the burgeoning operation is branded “ASSET WORLD CORPORATION” or AWC, comprising a comprehensive, constantly growing, all-in-one real estate enterprise group that implements the vision of Mr. Charoen and Khunying Wanna Sirivadhanabhakdi with utmost effectiveness. AWC, effectively manages acquisitions of real estate properties and transitions the company to a fully integrated real estate group owning a diverse portfolio of projects in strategic locations. In 2012, the company launched Asiatique The Riverfront Destination, an integrated lifestyle-based tourism center located on the Chao Phraya River which quickly became a popular destination among Thais and international visitors.

In May 2009, TCC Group established Asset World Corp PCL (formerly First Destination Company limited) as an investment holding and real estate company to effectively manage acquisitions of real estate properties and transition the company to a fully integrated real estate group owning a diverse portfolio of projects in strategic locations. In 2012, the company launched Asiatique The Riverfront Destination, an integrated lifestyle-based tourism center located on the Chao Phraya River which quickly became a popular destination among Thais and international visitors.
