khaosan road entrance0.81km from Wat Suthat Thepwararam

Khao San Road is known as the Bangkok backpacker central, yet has no historical sights to speak of. Even so, its location in the Old City makes it an ideal base from which to explore Bangkok’s classic attractions. That's not to say there's nothing to look at or admire here, though.

Wat Phra Kaew is one of the most important Buddhist temples in Thailand. Located in the historic centre of Bangkok and within the grounds of the Grand Palace, the temple enshrines Phra Kaew Morakot, the highly revered Buddha image meticulously carved from a single block of jade.
