Talat Phlu BTS is located on the main Krung Thon Buri Road and is also connected by an interchange walkway with Ratchapruek BRT Station. Opened in February 2013, this station mainly serves locals who live in the area, as well as commuters and those interchanging with the BRT line.
The Talat Phlu area is well known locally for its abundance of excellent street food options mostly centred around Thoet Thai Road Soi 18 and Soi 25. There is also a major mall (Tha Phra) which can be found by walking down the busy Ratchadapisek Road. The area around the mall is home to lots of other shopping options, as well as street food and a few trendy Thai-style bars and restaurants.
