Classic Thai Temples & Khaosan Rd
Immediately north of Rattanakosin (Grand Palace) an area prominent in Culture. This zone is home to a very lively travelers scene and a mass of budget accommodation.
Some love it, some hate it but it's worth a look especially the main walking street "Khaosan Rd" where you will find extensive markets, a huge range of goods from cheap clothes to Thai handicrafts, many inexpensive restaurants and all the different types of people that come will make it a interesting experience.
Somewhat surprisingly, the nearby backstreets retain a genuinely Thai feeling, much more so than Bangkok's other main tourist accommodation areas, it's an infusion, dynamic not too extreme yet always passive as is Thai.
Whilst the major transport systems don't pass through, they get you close otherwise take local canal or river ferry get immersed in the local culture.
