<> Bang Lamphu

Top

Bang Lamphu is an area approx 5kms West of Siam Centre. 

The area is inland of Rattanakosin (Grand Palace) and extends to cover the area of Khao San Rd on the northern part of Rattanakosin, Bangkok's backpacker mecca.

Khaosan Road (spoken as Khao Sarn Road) (Thaiถนนข้าวสาร) is a short street in central BangkokThailand. It is located in the Banglamphu area of (Phra Nakhon district) about 1 km north of the Grand Palace and Wat Phra Kaew in the tour zone of Rattanakosin.

"Khaosan" translates as "milled rice", a reminder that in former times the street was a major Bangkok rice market. In the last 20 years, however, Khaosan Road has developed into a world famous "backpacker ghetto". It offers cheap accommodation, ranging from 'mattress in a box' style hotels to reasonably priced 3-star hotels. In an essay on the backpacker culture of Khaosan.
