The BTS Ratchathewi station is a BTS skytrain station on the Sukhumvit Line in the Ratchathewi District of Bangkok. The station is located on Phaya Thai Road and is located between the BTS Siam Station and the BTS Phaya Thai Station in Bangkok. There are a number of hotels around the station and many low cost restaurants.

The Ratchathewi BTS Station is not far from the Pratunam market – the epicentre of wholesale cheap clothing in Thailand and where you will find many foreign wholesale buyers everyday. If you are looking for the odd then the Calypso Cabaret or ladyboy show should be a good way to end you day while having been on the market the whole day.
