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.

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).

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.

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

This is my favorite neighborhood to spend a few days first arriving into Thailand to pick up the necessary supply of misquito repelent, the new skirt and scarf I just cant live without, and to enjoy a beer sitting at street cafe watching all the new travelers arriving in Bangkok treking thru the area with their backpacks heavy on their...
