Where to stay in Bangkok
There are three main areas in Bangkok where the majority of foreign visitors to the city choose to stay. Traditionally the main backpacker district in Bangkok is on the Khao San Road and the surrounding streets. This is the area where all four direct services from Koh Chang drop off passengers. You can still find a lot of budget accommodation in this area, but not as much as there used to be as the price and quality of the hotels and guesthouses located here has improved steadily over the last 10 years.
The advantage of staying in the Khao San Road area is that you are close to the major riverside attractions such as the Royal Palace, the disadvantage is that the area is not connected to either of Bangkok’s two modern rapid transport systems.
The other two main areas where foreign visitors to the city stay are on or near the Silom Road and on the Sukhumvit Road. The Sukhumvit Road has the best range of hotels, bars and restaurants but its further from points of interest in the city such as Siam Square, Lumphini Park and the riverside areas with the major temples and market. However, from both the Silom Road and the Sukhumvit Road areas you have easy access to both Bangkok’s MRT (metro) and BTS (overhead suburban train) networks making it quick and cheap to get around Bangkok.
