Ratchaprasong is an intersection in the heart of Bangkok. Where Sukhumvit Road and Ratchadamri Road meet.

It is the shopping zone and the attraction of foreign tourists located near Siam Square. There exists a walkway that conveniently links Ratchaprasong to and from it. This makes this compound a large shopping arcade. Moreover, it houses several shrines that are popular among people, to worship namely the Erawan Shrine in front of Sogo Department store, The Trinity and the Ganesha in front of Central World Department Store . Also, on every 31st December of every year, this area is used to host a new countdown occasion, on which people gather and countdown to new year simultaneously.

                After paying homage to sacred beings. The stomach needs filling too. We would then select to dine in a restaurant with a fine atmosphere and proceed to go shopping at Suan Lum Night Bazaar, a shopping site open during the day and night using the BTS service again. Commuting only for 2 minutes, we will arrive at Sala Daeng Station, using the fifth exit which connects to the MRT. Riding on the MRT for 1 station and alighting at Lumpini station, using the third exit, we will see the entrance to Suan Lum Night Bazaar.
