Coffee World is one of the main coffee chains in Thailand; their branch in Khaosan Road offers excellent coffee in a pleasant, tastefully and air-conditioned environment. A Viennese corner in Bangkok. Four Sons Village is one of the more luxurious and newest hotels in the Khaosan Road area; its big restaurant dominates the access to the handsome semi-walking street in the backside of the Chana Songkram Temple and offers comfortable seats on solid wooden tables and chairs. Tuptim is a classical Thai establishment, where you sit on a wide teak-wood balcony surrounded by lush Thai vegetation; the place provides the perfect historical background for the food. The dark, rich wood enhances the effect of the...Read More

A highly aromatic and tasteful pleasure, coffee deserves an equally attractive logo, a rich, evocative one, capable of creating a visual foreplay before the drink is enjoyed. Coffee World succeeded on that and features a complex logo composed of three images; the first is an oversized coffee bean, next to it there is what it seems like a coffee bean with an exaggerated central gap of irregular shape. In the third picture the central gap transformed itself into a map of the Americas and the rest of the bean has been transformed into the oceans. Coffee World; live it, drink it.Coffee...Read More

The Four Sons Village is one of the more luxurious and newest in the Khaosan Road area and attempts to address all the travelers’ needs at once. Its big restaurant dominates the access to the handsome semi-walking street in the backside of the Chana Songkram Temple and offers comfortable seats on solid wooden tables and chairs.Following a day that turned out to be more complicated than I expected, I entered the restaurant in the search for a late lunch, and the staff immediately gave a flyer to me. I was expecting to see the day specials, but instead it was a promotion of the in-house Thai massages service. I looked at my right and saw a podium advertising the video movies to be shown in t...Read More

Culinary experiences are measured by more than the food eaten; sometimes the surroundings can be as significant as the food itself. In modern Bangkok it is not hard to find classical Thai teak wood structures; there are plenty of old neighborhoods which haven't been replaced yet by concrete monsters. However, very few of them are used for tourism purposes. A classical place, where you sit on a wide teak balcony surrounded by lush Thai vegetation provides a ...Read More

It would be a sin to write such a journal – or to visit Bangkok – without dedicating some space to the local food. Next to Khaosan Road, on the junction of Thanon Rambuttri with Thanon Chakraphong, there is a cluster of stalls offering local delicacies. According to the local customs, the stalls change along the day; some foods are good for the mornings while others for the evenings. This is a good reason for visiting and exploring the corner at all hours. The food – as always in Thailand...Read More
