That area is nowhere near any of the main backpacker spots. It's in Thonburi, on the west side of the Chao Phraya River. If you want to be out of the tourist areas, that is one area that will fit the bill perfectly.

Personally, I like that area. It's pretty close to Wong Wian Yai Railway Station and there are lots of great places to eat. There is a lot of traffic in the area, though, especially near the roundabout. The alleyways are fun to explore, though.

Perhaps not the best part of town to stay in if you've never been to Thailand before. Other areas like Banglamphu and Samsen are much more "first timer friendly."
