Staying at the New Siam 11 gives you great access to food. The best place for soup (Thai style Vietnamese soup) is Khun Deng Guay Jub Yuan. It is always packed. They also do a great Chinese sausage salad.

If there's such a thing as getting weary of everything the malls have to offer, this area along the Chao Phraya river could be the chillout spot you're after. Increasingly "hip" with its blend of old and new, it attracts baclpackers and young locals. Stay...More

Frequented mainly by locals. Lots of small restaurants and bars in converted shophouses with fairly reasonable prices. Very busy so good to people watch.
