PHAYA THAI

  • For centuries the City of Angels has been delighting foreign guests with its warmth, exoticism and adventure. Every corner has its unique charm and little-known Phaya Thai district is no exception. Spending a day wandering around this forgotten corner of the capital is well worth the effort. Start your day from iconic Victory Monument … Insiders know that the Big Mango is already alive much before dawn. From BTS Victory Monument first head straight to Soi Rangnam, walk straight up for 3 minutes until you discover Suan Santiparp on the left-hand side. This peaceful park oasis is open from 05:00 onwards and is home to scores of locals who stream in daily to take their morning exercise: jogging, aerobics, tai-chi, badminton, yoga.Whilst you’re here, make the most of Soi Rangnam’s plentiful street-stalls and grab a fruit shake and some fried banana for breakfast. Then take a shortcut through the parking lot of King Power Duty Free and head towards Thanon Si Ayuthaya. From here, use the skybridge to cross over and head into Suan Pakkard, or Cabbage Patch Palace, located directly opposite. This beautiful enclave includes a garden, eight traditional Thai houses and a fascinating museum. It’s a lovely oasis at which to while away a few hours amid the riches of Thai heritage and culture.By now you’re probably peckish. We suggest heading back along Thanon Si Ayuthaya to the main intersection, from here turn right and head up Thanon Phayathai (running below the skytrain), towards Victory Monument. When you reach this round-about take the first big main street on the right, Thanon Ratchawithi. Walk straight for 5 minutes, cross over, and Phaya Thai Palace (circa 1909) is there on the grounds of Mongkut Hospital. In the gorgeous building at the front can be found Cafe de Norasingha; housed in a former royal waiting room. The cafe is part of the structure that was once the residence of King Vajiravudh. Wander around and then enjoy a spot of afternoon tea in glorious Art Deco-inspired surrounds.From here, retrace your steps and make you way back to Soi Rangnam. About half-way down, near the park on the opposite side can be found Rangnam Spa & Massage. This is a great place at which to grab a soothing massage, therapeutic facial or invigorating body scrub. For adventurous and flexible people try a Thai massage, which will have you reaching nirvana in many weird and wonderful postures. Afterwards, why not head back up the road to Century Plaza on the corner and catch a new-release film at the cinema on the top floor.Now that you’re fully rested, it’s time to return to Soi Rangnam and head to the fabulous Sky Train Jazz Club, which can be found on the corner above a noodle shop. You need to take the small staircase and head to the roof. You’ll be rewarded with stunning views overlooking the BTS Skytrain, Victory Monument station and bustling Soi Rangnam. The place is abuzz with a young, lively crowd and serves cold drinks and tasty local Thai food at reasonable prices.Afterwards, jazz enthusiasts may as well want to kick on to Saxophone Jazz Pub up the road (beside BTS Victory Monument on the right-hand side, facing the night market and just 15m from the corner). This is the city’s oldest and most respected jazz and blues clubs and home to the world famous Koh Mr Saxman. A nightly roster of top local and international musicians play there and they serve a wide range of local and international beers.
