Banglamphu is a great place to base yourself while you are exploring Bangkok as many of the city’s main attractions are within easy reach. Two attractions that should top every visitor’s list is the wonderful Makutromsaran Park and the ever-popular Central Plaza Ladprao Mall. Two other interesting attractions you’ll find nearby Banglamphu are the Central Plaza Chaengwattana and Union Mall.
When it’s time to escape the bustling streets of Bangkok, head to one of the many nearby green spaces. There are some nice family parks, so why not take a break in the Queen Sirikit Park.
If you could do with a spot of retail therapy, amble through the boutiques, stores and stalls at IT Square.
Finding somewhere suitable to base yourself around the Banglamphu area is a breeze. Take your pick from the Miracle Grand Convention Hotel, the Centara Grand at Central Plaza Ladprao Bangkok, or the Novotel Bangkok Impact, Pak Kret.
