A visit to the attractions of temples, historical sights and shopping malls along the Chao Phraya River are just minutes away with the convenience of the MRT. Sukhumvit Road is also accessible by transferring to the BTS Skytrain system just a couple of stops from the Ratchada area.
And the Airport Express Link at the bottom of Ratchada Road means that to reach Suvarnabhumi Airport, you never have to risk being stuck in Bangkok’s notorious traffic again. The worry of possibly missing your flight disappears when you book a hotel in Ratchada.
