Bangkok city map hotels

Sukhumvit lively but convenient

One of the longest avenue in the world. Heavy traffic, very lively, popular with expats and tourists, residential area. Convenient for BTS stations, and  MRT Asok, popular Terminal 21 commercial center, shopping, restaurants, Sukhumvit is one of the hot spots for nightlife, but distant from the historical center.

Ploenchit road Luxury

Downtown luxury hotels, shopping in expensive malls

Pratunam watergate

Central location, one of the major local markets, cheap clothing hub, and street vendors, within walking distance to major malls, Klong Saen Saep long-tails boat pier, BTS is at 15 minutes walk, Bustling on daytime but Pratunam is quiet in the night.

Siam Square

Referred to as the center of the city, and the heart of big modern malls. Siam Square always, from generation to generation, been a place to be. Shops, restaurants, cafes, clothes designer boutiques, cinemas, a Hard Rock Cafe, banks. From young-aged school and college students, office workers, trend-setting city dwellers, and, of course, a bunch of tourists. it is also the district where the famous Chulalongkorn University is located. In my opinion, this is the district that has undergone the greatest change in the last 20 years and continues to develop.

The biggest and busiest is also the interchange Skytrain station.

Silom Road windmill

Used to be the place where fruits and rice were grown, and windmill supplied water to the orchards and rice fields. Later the area became the Silom road. Sometimes called the wall street of Thailand, banks, financial, and insurance houses have made the road their headquarters. Well-known for the famous Patpong nightlife (name of a rich Chinese immigrant) area. On daytime, white-collar, young and active working people, markets, small restaurants, street vendors, malls, are making one of the busiest streets of the city. BTS and MRT station (Sala Daeng). Very calm at the weekend.

Lumpini Park is a few minute’s walks away.

Good location Rama 4 road

Ideal location, an easy walk to Silom and shopping area, Benjakitti Sirikit convention center and park, Klong Toei market, and the future One Bangkok under construction. Small guest houses at reasonable prices as well

MRT Lumpini station

China town 

One of the largest in the world. Authenticity, smells and sounds, food, shopping. Alive, full of energetic and noisy activity on daytime, Chinatown is renowned for is night street food markets.

  • The blue line between Hua Lamphong and Bang Khae (Lak Song) district on the Petchkasem road is expected to open in September 2019, with 4 stations in Chinatown, Wat Mangkon Kamalawat, Sam Yot, Sanam Chai (Siam Museum and Wath Pho reclining Buddha) and Itsaraphap, with an underground section under the Chao Phraya River to reach Thonburi across the river and then outside until the last station.

The tests will start in July and will be free of charge during this period.

Short distance to Hua Lamphong railway station.

Along Chao Phraya river

For 140 years located on the riverside is the world-famous Oriental hotel. International 5 stars chains, boutique hotels, resorts, and guest houses, offer a large choice for the visitors to stay in one of the best places to sojourn.


The old quarter, no high rise buildings

Luxury and mid-range

Rattanakosin is the historic and cultural but also a gastronomic district

No BTS. but three MRT stations will open on July 2019

Kao San Road milled rice

The well known short road. Used to be the backpackers’ mecca, today a wide diversity of travelers, and group tours are the most concentrated tourist place in Thailand. A place to meet people sharing experiences and ideas of a voyage around the country.

Joe Cummings author for a tourist guidebook, after reporting the place as a cheap and nice area to stay, has made Kao San what it is today. The movie The Beach helped to bring a new generation of globetrotters.

Hotels and guest houses in every price range

Restaurants, nightclubs, bars, tattoo shops, travel agencies, clothing brand copy, hawkers, massage, tailors, boxing gym, used books, and near to the Banglamphu market.

Close to the Grand Palace, Wat Pho, and Chao Phraya river

A short walking distance from Kao San road is a more tranquil, and pleasant place to layover, a lot of good restaurants.

Traveling With Kids

The location is important when you have to move around the city with your kid(s). By experience I suggest to stay as close as possible of public transport (BTS-MRT) and a park, Why? kids and adults could relax and play around after a day in the bustling city. The Best is Lumpini, a lot of activities  Benjasri is well located and is a small attractive park, Benjakiti Park Queen Sirikit may be more for an adult but a pleasant and nice view park. Along the Chao Phraya can be a nice option as well. I discovered recently the Hotel Ibis Bangkok Riverside on the Thonburi side of Bangkok, kids friendly and pets allowed. I do not recommend to stay in Kao San road, not really a place for kids.
