The Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT) is inviting Thais and expatriates living in Thailand to download a unique Thai-English mobile app launched by the Department of Cultural Promotion, Ministry of Culture to promote visits to the cultural, recreational, and shopping spots of the Thai capital.

There are various categories; such as, restaurants, shopping malls, as well as entertainment and sports venues. All the selected spots are within walking distance of the stations. The app also includes five recommended trips:

3) Experiencing Thai culture at Sanam Chai,
4) Capturing beautiful corners at Sanam Chai,
