Big party zone with lots of bars, clubs, restaurants and massage places. If you need a bit more quiet place to eat go to the parallel street, 20 metres away.

Good area full of life. Nothing special but if you’re in the mood for a typical Thai tourist experience of bars, girls, bargains and street food it’s well worth going especially at night.

Much too touristic street. Food is much more expensive than in other restaurants. They try to convince you all to visit theorie restaurant. A lot of happy hours are taling place daily.

Great place where you can come across curious westerners having fun in the middle of the street. You feel safe from the police station at the entrance.

While you’ll see skyscrapers in most parts of Bangkok,
it’s the gilded roofs of ancient pagodas that adorn
the skyline of Banglamphu, the city’s historical and
most touristic district. Hordes of tourists flock to
this area to tick quite a few must-see attractions off
their to-do list, with the Grand Palace being the most
spectacular of them all. Banglamphu is also home to
Bangkok’s infamous tourist ghetto, centered around

Yes, and make sure that you don't believe anyone you encounter on the way there if they tell you it is closed. That is a scam trying to get you to go somewhere else.
