The quieter cousin of Khaosan Road

Posted by Sukhumwit Steve on May 10th, 2013 filed in Accommodation, Dining and wining

One end of Soi Rambuttri is just two minutes walk from Khaosan Road, yet this short distance seems to have placed the two streets thousands of miles apart. While Khaosan is loud and brash, Rambuttri boasts a more genteel aura and gives insights as to how the surrounding district of Banglamphu must have looked before the tourists arrived.

The bottom end of Rambuttri runs parallel to a section of Khaosan before looping around Chana Songkhram Temple. There are still lots of shade giving trees on the road and cafés where it is possible to sit at a streetside table and people watch. Guest houses on Rambuttri tend to be cheaper and more likely to have vacancies than those on Khaosan. With full facilities at budget prices, the ever-popular Rambuttri Village Inn is the first choice for many visitors.

There are quite a few vendors dotted along the street selling cheap and cheerful delicacies including the ubiquitous pad Thai fried noodles, barbecued chicken and spring rolls. For slightly more upmarket dining experiences, Bombay Blues and Oh my Cod! serve up the best of India and England respectively. The 1Stop Bangkok guide to Khaosan Road has more details about this vibrant area of the city.
