Sam Yan

Sam Yan (Thai: สามย่าน, pronounced [sǎːm jâːn]) is the name of an intersection and its nearby neighbourhood in Bangkok, Thailand. It connects Rama IV Road with Phaya Thai and Si Phraya roads, and is located within Pathum Wan District, next to its border with Bang Rak. The neighbourhood lies in the intersection's northwest corner on land owned by Chulalongkorn University, and is famous for its restaurants.

Sam Yan Intersection is where Rama IV (which runs in a roughly east-west direction) meets Phaya Thai Road to the north and Si Phraya Road to the southwest. Originally consisting only of an at-grade intersection, the Thai–Japan Flyover Bridge, constructed in 1992, now allows Rama IV traffic to bypass Sam Yan, as well as the eastward Henri Dunant and Sala Daeng intersections.
