  • We had our gala dinner arranged here.loved the ceremony,the environment but the food options was limited.There were many Muslims over there and we had only fish which was HALAL.  more »
  • From hotels and condominiums near Ratchadamri train station, you can admire this beautiful green racetrack and golf course from the top. I think it's a really beautiful place to see in the daytime. On the other hand, there were a lot of local people who had never seen a horse race, but we witnessed from the BTS that about ten horses were actually competing. It was quite an impression. It is recommended to go in the daytime, so it is hot and cool in the morning or evening.

  • Great place and amazing food - Thats how i sum it up. Could do better with explaining where the restaurants are actually located - Took me a while to get there after i got dropped at the main gate.
