Phra Athit is one of the most well-known roads in Rattanakosin Island, famous not only for its charming architecture and relaxing hangout spots, but also for its selection of good restaurants and welcoming bars. We suggest going for a run at Santi Chai Prakarn Park then treating yourself with a delicious meal at Escapade Burger & Shakes.
Things to do in Phra Athit road
Located along the banks of the Chao Phraya River, Park Suan Santi Chaiprakarn offers a great fun, relaxing vibe and magnificent views of the Rama VIII Bridge. Built around Phra Sumen fort, the remaining fort from the reign of Rama I, the park still has a number of lamphu trees, inspiring the name of the Banglumphu district. Visitors to the park engage in activities like jogging, Chinese martial arts, aerobics, musical performances, fishing and many more. You can see Thai people of all ages enjoying themselves and relaxing here, as well as foreigners and tourists straggling in from nearby Khaosan Road. If you are tired of the busy city, Suan Santi Chaiprakarn Park, is a great alternative.
Situated along the banks of the Chao Phraya River, Palladian-style boutique hotel, Praya Palazzo offers a pleasant yet luxurious vibe. This charming hotel was formerly a mansion and still retains the features of its original structure. It’s quite close to the Old Town and its tourist attractions, making it easier to take in Bangkok’s magic.
Across from Phra Sumen fort stands a not-so-big dining room called Escapade Burger&Shakes. Thai youngsters love that it serves great burgers and has a mixologist who knows what they want. The menu of the day, which is changed regularly, is another reason to fall in love with the place. Try the black-bun burgers to see why everyone keeps coming back to this place. Come at around 5pm to make sure you don’t have to queue up for a long time, and that the delicious menu of the day is still available.
Saffron bakery is a modest and simple cafe. Varieties of baked goods and beverages, as well as Thai food, are served here. The cake display features delicious-looking treats such as carrot cake, coconut cake, and apple pie. The feel-like-home ambiance instills a sense of comfort. The best thing about the place: everything is wallet-friendly.
Small in size but big in vibe, Jazz Happens Bar is a place for those who love jazz music. Drinks are inexpensive. We recommend you order a set of five drinks: five different drinks that cater to everyone from the beginner to the heavyweight.
