What's the difference between ข้างขวา and ทางขวา?

When I should use ข้าง and ทาง? Is it correct to say ข้างขวา or ข้างซ้าย? Or maybe the only correct way is ทางขวา...
Thanks in advance

    "ข้างขวา" is a noun phrase(right side).
    "ทางขวา" is a preposition phrase (toward right side) ,ทาง is an preposition(toward)

    Usually they both are same,they mean right side. ข้างขวา means something near your right hand side,you can use "ทางขวา" instead in this meaning.
    EX: เขานั่งอยู่ข้างขวาของคุณ or เขานั่งอยู่ทางขวาของคุณ = He sits on your right side.
    But "ทางขวา" has another meaning , "toward right side"
    EX: มองไปทางขวา =See toward right side
