Ratchadaphisek

What to do in Ratchadaphisek

    Ratchada is overwhelmingly modern but with a less built-up, more out-of-town feel than Sukhumvit, for example. Distinctive landmarks along Ratchadaphisek Road include the well-known Thailand Cultural Center, local nightclubs and pubs, as well as department stores and value-for-money hotels. Located just to the north of downtown Bangkok, it runs parallel to Viphavadi Rangsit Road to the east, stretching northwards all the way from the end of Asok Road (Sukumvit Soi 21) to Lad Phrao Road.

    In recent years it's gained something of a reputation for being an affordable nightlife spot, though this is more among locals than the expat or vacation crowd. Ratchada is well-served by the MRT underground network, which connects you to many parts of Bangkok.
