Bang Lamphu (Khaosan rd)

As an old area it became a backpacker zone and years later has become "the in place", today it's a mixing bowl of cultures where East meets West with a hilarious creation of Markets, Restaurants, bars, and nightlife, trendy and bizarre. 

Now where thousands of people troll the 3 street zones (high, medium, low) looking for "happiness" there's plenty for everyone

This zone is known by the main street name spelt several ways "Khaosaan" or "Khaosan Rd" or "Khao san rd"  which is a mishmash of tourism and culture, a popular backpacker zone which attracted hospitality services and then came the tourists .. it's strange and fun for everyone. 


Getting there: 
BTS skytrain does not go into this zone, try the local Saen Saep Canal, its adventure for many reasons otherwise MRT gets you close or it's the taxi car or tuktuk (peak hour traffic in this zone is very bad)

    • MARKETS:  
    • Bang Lamphu markets, close to famous touristy Khaosan Rd, but not touristy prices, make the effort and enjoy the savings on casual clothing and footwear. 
    • Khansan Rd markets - anything / everything but you will pay for the convenience 
    • TEMPLE: 
    • Near Bowonniwet Temple Chakkrabong/Kraisi & Tani Rds. Open:10.00-17.00 daily
    • Wat Ratchanatdaram Markets Mainly Buddha items, amulets and similar @ super cheap prices. If your thinking of souvenirs you won't get cheaper. The journey by canal is fast and the brief walk offers many sights, recommend you have a local host..
    • MAPS: Khaosan rd "An infusion" of East and West and a bizarre fun mixed up place. Good spot for Sunday lunch & people watching. Lots of Indian, veg, Israeli food. 
    • The location is noted in Family tours zones, so popular it has three (3) zones to cater for Accommodation, Restaurants, bars and markets, map Khaosan Rd 3 x zones 
    • FLOWER MARKETS:  
    • Thewes Markets Flowers, Plants, some fruit & veg and some handcraft item. Cheap produce, very colourful. Several excellent vantage points to view the River at caf'e & restaurants @ Pier Thewet
    • Bangkok Flower markets - also known as Pak Khlong Talaat
    • EATING
    • So many worthy nominees, Bangkok (Thailand) is a champion of culinary taste delights
      • A major aspect of local culture is street food, if you need a few tips try Thai food $1 Menu, ideally you should have a local host or a few drinks to give you the confidence to try (try NOT die).
