Rambuttri Road is one of Bangkok’s quirkier streets. Starting off from Chao Fa Road, it heads straight towards Wat Chana Songkhram and then turns abruptly left, right and right again as it follows the perimeter walls of the temple compound. Then, it crosses busy Chakrabongse Road and runs parallel to Khao San Road for a couple of hundred meters. Finally, it veers off to the left to end at a small roundabout. Read more of this write-up to the discover why Rambuttri Road is worth a visit.
While its vicinity to Khao San Road means a similar assortment of guesthouses, hotels, restaurants, bars and massage shops, there’s just something about Rambuttri Road. It sets itself apart from its rowdier cousin with a distinctive relaxed vibe. This laid-back charm makes it irresistible to many visitors to Khao San Road in Bangkok. Adding to convenience is the connectivity between the two streets. Many narrow alleyways lead back to Khao San, but you’ll want to stay and chill! With leafy trees on the western side of Chakrabongse Road, it’s a vibe that’s hard to find in Bangkok these days. Shop, snack or even try and spot the many local cats, it’s a charming area to be during your Bangkok stay.
One aspect of Rambuttri Road that it shares with Khao San Road, however, is that it comes alive in the evenings. Dive into the nightlife of Bangkok Old Town, your way. Partying solo, or out with a big group? There’s something for everyone, whether its a dive-bar, happening club or even some late-night street-side eats. Another part of the appeal is the social crowd. You can be rubbing shoulders with tourists from all over the world, as well as Bangkok expats and locals, all out with one common goal: A memorable night out!
