I enjoyed walking in this street & ate a delicious Thai food. For sure it's a must see street of Bangkok if you want to know their culture & life style.

Lively place. Not at all authentic but if you need to buy someone a trinket or two, this is your spot. Alcohol is cheap and street food is good (and safe they tell me)

We spent an evening here. Plenty of shops, restaurants and street foods. Continually bombarded with ping pong shows but easy to ignore. Lovely atmosphere for shopping and eating.

Bustling with stalls selling food, clothes, drinks, knick knacks , hair braiding and shows this road was so intriguing to us! Good fun for adults. Can be a bit loud for younger children with many bars lined on the streets.

Used to really like this area. However, they’ve now removed all the pavement sellers and its lost some of its atmosphere now. You can still get a cheap beer though.

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
