The 4 Mega Projects Transforming Rama IX Area

Currently a darling of Bangkok’s property circles, the neighborhood has in recent years been propelled into the spotlight and touted as the Capital’s “Newest CBD Location”.

This honorific title is well earned; Rama IX is conveniently located and connected to other parts of the city via a network of routes (I.e. MRT, Airport Rail Link and Road). It is an office and business hotspot, with big players such as The Stock Exchange of Thailand being headquartered in the area. On top of this, the neighborhood offers a pleasant residential environment with a multitude of Shopping Malls (Central Rama 9, Fortune Town) and Condos (Ideo Mobi Rama 9, Belle Rama 9).
