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
Past it’s former glory as a capital’s centre of old Siam, yet it has quite a lot to offer for travelers, especially those on tighter budget. There’s a lot of decent hotels and hostels and quality local restaurants, which won’t make a hole in the...More
It is an interesting part of Bangkok, and some would say that it is far more authentic than many other areas. So it’s worth seeing...just. There is a big market.....a lot of clothes! But it was very hot when we were there, and packed with...More

There are several hotels, guest houses, restaurants,Halal food shops, A Mosque (Chakrapong Masjid) Street foods, fast food restaurants, Markets,night market and many famous and well known...More
I like his neighbourhood. It’s vibrant. You’d best be avoiding the backpacker invested Khao San Road. The rest of the neighbourhood has a lot to offer too. Some nice restaurants and bars. If you look good, you’ll even find some quite places where you can...More
Well, urban sprawl Bkk style, if that is your thing, well, there is plenty of non descript urban jungle out there inhabited by fake-friendly Thais with big eyes on your wallet size...steer carefully...
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
This area is a great introduction to Bangkok and Thailand in general. Lots of food, massages and things to see around the area. I love just walking around and looking. Start your trip here for a few days, then maybe stay around the siam area...More

Depends on what "tourist" things you're looking for. The Banglampoo area is close to the Grand Palace, museums and older part of BKK. It has a wide range of lodging from guesthouse to 4-star hotels. Anywhere in Banglampoo away from Khao San Road is quiet. Lots of nice restauants and night life. Riva Surya is a great hotel on the river in Banglampoo. Navalai also good. If youre looking for shopping and more intense tourist setting, you may want downtown in Sukhumvit road area but its crowded and noisy. If you want luxury, you should opt for a 5-star hotel on the river.

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.
