Bangkok on a Budget – The Very Epic Centre of Backpacking

Bangkok has always been considered to be most popular spot for backpacking in Asia. Read on to find out how you can experience all that the city has to offer, on a budget!

How to Get Around

Getting around in Bangkok is relatively easy with several options available. The BTS Skytrain/MRT is fast, reliable and cheap. The boat services which operate on the Chao Phraya River too are worth checking out along with meter taxis. However, the famous Tuk Tuks are just plain expensive! If you do wish to try it, do settle on a price before setting off.

Places to Eat

Ready to feast? Then check out Terminal 21, one of the largest food courts in the city or San Road which offers some of the most mouth-watering Thai dishes. If you are on a quest to taste the best Pad Thai in all of Bangkok, then head over to the legendary Thip Sami Pad Thai restaurant!

Places to stay

On a very strict budget? Then check out Khao San Road or Silom Road for the cheapest accommodation. While it does boast of a festive vibe, it can get overly crowded. Reasonably priced accommodation can be found in Bangkok city hotels including the likes of AVANI Atrium Bangkok as well.
