Ratchathewi

2012-08: 2kms North of Siam Centre
 
With the exception of "King Power duty free complex", which is dedicated to Tourists, the zone is more for locals, much lower prices but not so many touristy help signs.
 
There is an long winding market that breaches in an around a few streets otherwise a few nice quality Centres for bargain shopping and not to mention the wholesale clothing market.
Interchange of BTS (skytrain), Canal (Khlong) "Saen Saep" fast ferry (2 star local culture)
