Found ourselves a nice little hotel in the area and it’s a good place to explore from. You’ve got the bustle of Koh San Rd, the tourists, loads of hotels/hostels and plenty of street food. Easy access to The Grand Palace and Chinatown is only...More

Banglamphu, the area where Khao San Road is situated is all pretty similar to Khao San Road itself. There are no real quality hotels or restaurants, although I did see an Ibis, and this was probably on one of the more gentrified roads in the...More

Yes, that's the Ratchadmanoen Post Office and you have the address. They offer all postal services including Poste Restante. Ask anyone writing to you to underline your last name, otherwise they'll be searching for mail to Mr. Josh and not Mr. T.

Where to stay - first time in Bangkok (3 Replies)
Hi! We're a couple in our 30s and we're going to Bangkok (and SE Asia) for the first time in July. We're used to travel around Latin America, North America and Europe, backpacking, mostly, but we're not that tight on the budget. We're looking at different options for staying in Bangkok a few days (4-5 days), but it all seems a bit confusing. Here's what we're looking for : - Close to the main attractions (temples, museums, cool markets...); - Not necessarly close to the nightlife (we...More

stay near a skytrain station- it will make things much easier. Grand palace, wat po, wat arun easily accessible by riverboat (or taxi to palace). Everyone has their favourite area, usually sukhumvit (nana or asoke), riverside, or silom. All have their attractions.

Hi All, We'll be spending some time in the Banglamphu area. Does anyone have any suggestions for the following: 1) Good restaurants- anything from locals places to upscale are appreciated 2) good massage places 3) good options for a canal boat tour? 4) Also heard some things about nattaphon ice cream near the Grand Palace? Any thoughts? Thanks!
