Phayathai - Ratchathewi 

2011-07-10: 2kms North of Siam Centre

The Phaya Thai district was set up in 1966 taking areas that were part of Dusit and Bang Kapi districts. 

In the 80's the area re scaled and dissected to address urbanisation issues. 

The once prominent Road "Phaya Thai" was then claimed by the area "Ratchathewi", the skytrain airport link BTS station Phaya Thai is located on Phaya Thai Road in Ratchathewi.

The BTS skytrain takes you through this area enroute to Chatuchak (JJ) markets. 

The skytrain line winds around Victory monument, you can good a good fast view otherwise exit at BTS station Victory Monument. The major attraction is the area is the Baiyoke Tower II - the highest rooftop view in all of Bangkok - at 84 floors up it's awesome!
