PHAYA THAI

Phaya Thai is a center of transportation that offers easy access to Suvarnabhumi via the Airport Rail Link and to the city center via its BTS station. Many suburbanites travel to this neighborhood at the end of each work day to catch a minivan at Victory Monument that will take them out of the city. Before they go home, they may stop at Saxophone Pub, a charming British-style pub with food, booze and live jazz music.
