The Baiyoke Tower, which is a few minutes’ walk from Phaya Thai BTS Station, became famous in Bangkok when it opened in 1997 as Thailand’s tallest building, measuring nearly 1000 feet tall. As well as this huge tower, the surrounding area is popular for shopping, and the sprawling Pratunam Market can also be accessed from Phaya Thai BTS Station. This market specializes in cheap clothing, accessories and souvenirs.
