The MRT Phra Ram 9 Station has no tourist attractions and is home to mainly low-key properties and buildings housing some of Thailands largest SME’s. The area is mainly a business area and if you want tourist attractions then you should look at getting off at the MRT Thailand Cultural Center or at the MRT Chatuchuck Station where more than a million tourists go each year.
The only building in this area which stands out is the large Fortune Tower building next to the station and nothing more than that. There are a small number of low-key resturants in the area but nothing to write home about.
We have listed some of these down below in the event you do get off at this station and are looking for a quick place to have a bite. There is a large IT city and the Chinese Embassy in Thailand is about 400 meters away from the station.
