Accommodation

Tim House

Map Foursquare Website

My regular spot for a room. 600B per night for a single room but they might give you a discount if you stay for a while and ask nicely.

Bangkok Story Hostel

Map Website

Nice dorm, good A/C. Basic outdoor showers. Busy area near Chinatown.

Baan Dinso 2

Map Website Facebook

Great location, small but comfortable rooms with A/C and shared bathrooms.

Nightlife, bars & cafés

Brewski

Map Website

Great rooftop bar with a decent selection of craft beers. They have a pint of the day for 200B.

Hair of the Dog Phrom Phong

Map Website

Great little craft beer pub with a weird hospital theme. Lots of tasty beers!

CRAFT

Map Website Facebook

When we arrived, it was empty. It's a massive place with an amazing selection of craft beer but it's even more expensive than most.

Khaosan Road

Map Foursquare Website

Surely the most famous backpacker street in the world. During the day it's quite tame with market stalls trying to get your business, but at night it goes crazy!

Rambuttri Alley

Map

A slightly more subdued version of Khaosan. I much prefer it.

Upper Rambuttri

Map

The upper part of Rambuttri is much nicer and more relaxed. You can get some really cheap drinks too.

Transport

Hua Lamphong

Map Foursquare

This is the station to get the night trains to Chiang Mai. You can buy tickets direct from the station but they sell out so go a few days early.

Suvarnabhumi Airport

Map Website Foursquare Website

The main international airport. It's so easy to get from/to here using the Airport Link train system. It leaves from the lowest floor of the airport, it's cheap and there's no traffic unlike the crazy roads of Bangkok.

Don Mueang International Airport

Map Website

This is the second airport (DMK), used by AirAsia. Getting there isn't so easy and I usually opt for a Grab or Uber.
