Khao San Road

The always-thumping heart of Thailand's backpacker scene, Khao San Road runs for a mere half-kilometre from Chakrabongse Road in the west to Tanao Road in the east. Studded with traveller-oriented cafes, noisy bars and street carts selling pad Thai, fried bugs and fake degrees, this is the centre of the action.

Between Khao San Road and the river

Covering West Banglamphu from Lamphu canal in the north down to Ratchadamnoen Avenue in the south and the Chao Phraya River in the west, this section includes laid-back Phra Arthit Road along with atmospheric West Soi Rambutri and other alleys surrounding Wat Chana Songkhram. While it's less of an all-out party vibe than nearby Khao San itself, you'll still find loads of eating, drinking and meeting spots to go with countless cheap guesthouses.
