It was nice in the day...

Nice to wander around in the day - very quiet and relaxed - some nice places to stop for coffee and food. Enjoyed it.

Lots of Construction in the Area
Feb 2020 • Business
There was so much construction in the area that the whole experience was underwhelming.
Waste of time really. Perhaps after the finish it will have better look.

Bangkok 💓

Every time we visit Thailand, we stay 3 days in Bangkok to overcome our jet lagged. My hubby and I love to visit different parts of this huge place and we are never disappointed with our findings. The food 🥘 is always a plus. The people are awesome. O complains except (for me) the many many smells. It never last long.

Old Bangkok neighborhood
Mar 2019 • Solo
Bang Lamphu means Mangrove Apple, but the last apple trees disappeared some time ago. It is an old neighborhood, if not the oldest in the city near where the royal rulers resided. Most westerners know it because Khao San road is located here. Since the 1970s backbackers congregated at Khao San and the local population is quite used to them.

The tourist area has expanded to most other parts of Banglamphu. In principle the further away from Khao San road, the better the deals for instance at Soi 4 off Samsen road. Most attractions like Wat Saket (Golden Mount) and Wat Suthat now charge foreigners for entering, though the park near Sumen fort is still free of charge.

I wonder what will happen to the neigborhood once the MRT link is ready. So far the disadvantage was also an advantage as poor public transportation kept even bigger crowds of tourists away.

City resort
Feb 2019 • Solo
With open air restaurants lining the streets among tattoo shops, massage parlours and stalls selling cheap clothes it feels more like a budget resort than big city. After a poor lunch I found the nice riverfront terrace of hotel River Surya to enjoy coffee with mango ice cream. Public transport covers this area poorly, if you want to avoid the polluting old busses the best option is the boat landing at Phra Sumen.

Interesting and bustling neighbourhood
Feb 2019 • Couples
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 a 15 min taxi hop.

My Fave Area

This area offers all one could possibly need without the noise & peddlers of Khoa San. A great area that feels like a village & is very well located

Picture from the past
Nov 2018 • Couples
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 wallet. Apart from food and accommodation, it has few tourist sites worth visiting, mostly temples (wat Saket is a must see), local lanes, which haven’t changed much since long time (especially those along these small canals are interesting) and river side with pleasant pedestrian walk (next to phra athit road) and laid back park and fort.
