Overview

The name Ratchadaphisek mentioned here refers to the short distance between the Lat Phrao Intersection and the Rama IX Road Intersection, which is a busy commercial district containing several big department stores, office buildings, hotels and a large number of restaurants and nightlife establishments. A little way off the road is Thailand Cultural Centre, where shows and exhibitions are held from time to time. A subway station is also available here.

Location

Located to the north of downtown, Ratchadaphisek is a part of large ring road that joins many old routes together. But only the newly constructed sections are called Ratchadaphisek Road. The lively part, running parallel to the east of Vibhavadi-Rangsit Road, starts from the Rama IX Intersection and head up north to the Ratchada-Lat Phrao Intersection. Ratchadaphisek is one of Bangkoks busy districts housing numbers of high-rises and hotels, and it is also known as one of the famous entertainment zones with numbers of nightclubs, youth club discos and large soapy massage parlours. The traffic is horrendous during rush hours.

Eating

Food is easy to find here like other parts of the city ranging from daytime food stalls to famous seafood restaurants. Food courts in many department stores also offer delicious dishes.

Nightlife

Ratchada Soi 4
Located on Ratchadaphisek Road, Ratchada Soi 4 is another night entertainment zone in Bangkok. It is popular among local teens. Due to its young market, the music here is loud and more suitable for dancing than chit-chatting. But the drinks are rather cheap when comparing with Sukhumvits expat bars.
