Khao San Road is a short street located near Chao Phraya River which is famous for budget travelers. Many of them choose to stay at Khao San Road and wander around Bangkok during the trip. In this post, I intend to share tourist spots near Khao San Road. Hope it is useful.
The Grand Palace and Wat Phra Kaew
Both The Grand Palace and Wat Phra Kaew are the must-see places in Bangkok. The former is the most famous palace in Thailand, while the latter is the most famous temple in Thailand. They are located in the same area. The unique architecture and its history made these two places worth visiting.
Wat Pho is the temple that is well-known for the huge reclining buddha. It is located next to Wat Phra Kaew. If you decide to visit this place, do not forget to try Thai massage. This temple is also a school for traditional Thai massage.
Museum of Siam
Museum of Siam is a museum where you can learn and enjoy Thai history at the same time. The museum is informative and well maintained. You will learn history through interesting interactive activities.
Tha Phra Chan
Tha Phra Chan or Phra Chan Pier is an area that is full of amulet shops and stalls. I believe that this is the biggest amulet market in Bangkok, or even in Thailand. You will see many locals stop by and rent amulet here. Besides, there are many cloth and food stalls around. You can try Thai street food here.
Tha Maharaj or Maharaj Pier is a new charming community mall on Chao Phraya River Bank. The place is full of restaurants and coffee shops. And it is recommended for a photo-taking lover.
Wang Lang Market
Wang Lang Market is a popular outdoor market located on Chao Phraya River Bank. You can expect to find delicious local food and cheap clothing and accessories here.
Soi Rambuttri is a small road or soi near Khao San Road. Only a minute walk, you can reach another road. For me, the atmosphere of the pubs and bars at Rambuttri Road is cozier and less crowded.
