Bangkok by skytrain: Sanam Pao

Jump to story list

First published 11th November, 2005

Sanam Pao station is number N4 on the Sukhumvit line, four stops away from Siam, the main interchange station. It sits on top of Phahon Yothin Road. It also belongs to the small yet exclusive group of BTS stations whose only membership requirement is that they have nothing to offer the traveler looking for anything of cultural interest.

The most interesting thing here is the 2nd Battalion military base, but that's only because the rest of the area is lined with car dealerships and repair shops, dusty offices, hardware stores and the odd corporate office. To be interesting by default really isn't anything to get excited about.

If you find yourself in this area for some reason, your best bet is to catch the train to the next station (Ari) or the previous one (Victory Monument) for a more exciting area to explore.
