I think this is one of the nicest place where to stay at night in bangkok. It's easy to arrive both by tuktuk and by boat (pier 13). The atmosphere is warm and relaxed. Making exception of the most crowded street with live music and thousands of people having fun ... all the rest of the area is quite, with... More

This review is quite late. Banglampu is located in the Rattanakosin Island where most of the cheap backpacker accommodations can be found. The popular Khao San Road is also located in this area. The biggest attraction here is the Grand Palace.

Starting route from main Avennue circular rounsbout road connected to Phra Arthit and Samsaen plus Khaosarn road area. These Bunglumpoo location is a mix of touchy treandy feeling style. A Peaceful Santichaiprakarn public park // Local Indian restaurants mix Thai street food // Local goodies stuff with cheap prices // Chic clubs and bars.

How to describe this area? Well, its grown over the famous Khao San Road (nothing fancy, Raw Rice Road, that's it). Low-cost tourism business was booming so it grew to near blocks. The major advantage of Banglamphu is indeed one-step availability of anything related to tourism - air/bus/train/ferry tickets, join tickets, hostels, hotels, bars, restaurants, fast food joins to clothes...

Of course, this area is known for several tourist attractions. It also has a number of pleasant eateries and other pleasant spots (coffee shops, pubs) a short distance away from those tourist attractions (usually some distance away from the backpacker ghetto of KhaoSan Road). I enjoy going to such places with local friends, when they are in the mood to... More

A longtime fav of ours for its varied food, shopping and accommodation on offer. Have a wander and you'll be hard pressed not to find something you like.

After visiting Bangkok on a few occasions and not liking it I had decided to give up on the place and then I found Banglamphu. When I visit I usually stay in the Royal Hotel which might just be on the Rattanakosin side of the borough border but is still close by. Banglamphu is so unlike the rest of Bangkok... More

It's in the old town Bangkok. You can find literally EVERYTHING here. There are so many food vendors and restaurants those provide you good food. Clothes and shoes and beauty products can be found here with a really good deal. People are nice and absolutely helpful when you need help. No far from anywhere at all. The only issue is... More

The place to be if you are a 20's backpacker. Fun to visit occasionally if you are older. Great transportation hub
