<> Phayathai > Ratchathewi

Top


Phaya Thai > Ratchathewi is approx 1km behind the 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.
