Step Away From Khao San Onto The Sunnier Side Of The Street!
Part of Rambuttri runs parallel to Khao San, but despite being located so close by these two streets are different worlds. Rambuttri gives you a taste of how Bangkok used to look before all the skyscrapers arrived. Leafy banyan trees shade the pavements and the vibe sways more towards local than backpacker, despite a number of them now choosing to stay here rather than on the famous street itself.
Rambuttri is Khao San's more attractive, well behaved brother. The entire horse-shoe-shaped road takes around 30 minutes to walk along. This street has a great mix of guesthouses, restaurants, bars and street food stalls. Most of the shops are similar to those you find anywhere in the area selling the usual T-shirts, DVDs and other tourist trinkets.
1.Street Food : All along Rambuttri there is amazing street food. As you walk along the street during the day the stallholders are preparing the dishes, chopping vegetables, barbequing chicken, and wrapping spring rolls. There is a variety of places from carts to sit-down restaurants. Use the international language of pointing and try something other than phad thai.
2. Bangkok National Art Gallery : Housed in what used to be the Royal Mint, the main collection focuses on national artists, starting in the 17th century and working forwards. Without a great knowledge of Thai art, getting a good understanding of the permanent collection can be difficult. What are worth checking out are the temporary, more modern exhibitions, housed in the gardens and special collections building.
3.Wat Chana Songkhram : Once you step inside this wat’s compound gates you get a taste of a genuine working temple. You can easily spend an hour walking around the grounds, peering into the classrooms, admiring the murals and gazing up at the monks meditating in the windows of their lodgings. Entry is free and the only people who seem to visit are locals, which makes a great change from a lot of the temples in the area. Remember to dress appropriately.
