7 Cool Places on Phra Athit Road

Running next to Khao San Road, Phra Athit is a collection of quaint shophouses from the turn of the last century. Many elements of this iconic street combine to create a unique community, shaped by the river pier, picturesque riverside park, ancient fort, and close proximity to the Old City and Khao San Road.

There are many cute cafés, cool bars and interesting local restaurants in this area serving an eclectic and vibrant mix of arty students, expats and tourists weary of the Khao San experience and searching for something more authentic. Phra Atit Road is also a hub of live music – pop, rock and jazz – with some of the friendliest crowds in Bangkok.
