Phra Arthit road is very lively as it has many restaurants, hostels, cafes at an affordable price. There is a pier in this road which you can ride going to other intereting places for as cheap as 11-15 baht (about 50 cents) Plenty of buses that will go to Khaosan road , Sanam Luang , Grand Palace , Mahathat road...

We went to the Fort (in the picture) in the evening when it was a bit cooler and there were plenty of people enjoying the adjoining park. Being next to the river there was a lot of activity and lights and a nice place to spend some time. Phra Athit Road is so close to Khao San Road but so... More

Wanting something different from KSR? Try the restaurants, bars,stores, etc in this Road. Other attractions near it are a beautiful garden, a fort, a wat and some fighting roosters under big baskets. Enjoy!

It is a nice street with many Foodstall and Restaurants Musicbars with many Thai-Guests, Hotels and Guesthouses. You find a nice park on the river for relaxing, sometimes you have a jazz festival here. You can reach the Expressboat at the Pier 13.

We stay at the New Siam 11 Guest House. Just down the road is a great place for aThai version of Vietnamese soup. The soup is fantastic. The place is always full of locals, but they will always find you a seat. The bus stop for bus 53 is right outside the restaurant, it is easy to find, but unfortunately... More

I've been there for many times to buy something to eat or take a relax there for a few or 10 mins. We even go to Banglumpu by this road.

Phra Athit has always been my favourite area. If you come by boat, get off at Phra Athit Pier, make your way through souvenir stalls onto Phra Athit road. It's full of restaurants, coffeeshops, hotels and you can easily walk through Banglamphu from there. If you've had enough and need to go to Hua Lamphong train station, take bus No.... More

Staying in Banglamphu

Neighborhood Profile
While you’ll see skyscrapers in most parts of Bangkok, it’s the gilded roofs of ancient pagodas that adorn the skyline of Banglamphu, the city’s historical and most touristic district. Hordes of tourists flock to this area to tick quite a few must-see attractions off their to-do list, with the Grand Palace being the most spectacular of them all. Banglamphu is also home to Bangkok’s infamous tourist ghetto, centered around Khao San Road. Visit at night to feast on road-side pad thai, cheap beers and if you’re up for it, some dancing fueled by buckets of Thai whiskey.
