Khao San Road, Bangkok

2.5
#1 of 10 in Neighborhoods in Bangkok
Spend a while walking down the short and entertaining thoroughfare of Khao San Road. Named in honor of its rice milling heritage ("khaosan" means milled rice), nowadays this relatively small stretch caters mainly to backpackers, with a range of accommodations, travel agents, and bars. Somewhere between a party street and a place to organize your onward journey, the road provides services and entertainment to an almost exclusively international crowd, with English spoken in every business. By day you can explore the plethora of souvenir shops and international cuisine, before the music and dancing begin at sunset.

  • It is a place to demonstrate the ability at night. It is a style of staying in another region nowadays and going to Khao san to play. For some reason, you can experience tattoo singly in the shop of henna dyeing which is only from the evening. Your arms, legs, shoulders, etc. will be drawn with the pattern sedfrom the catalog. It will be gone in about ten days.

  • Push the morning to create, to avoid the crowds in Bangkok, to spit out the delicate balance of life on the ground, to hide, to live, to live, to live, to live in the country. In the morning can explore in the quiet alley, the shop with the bar has not yet woken up, leisurely shop, the bottom of the alley to enjoy the beauty of the work of the approval. It's a highly light-looking area, an avoidable high-profile, noisy back-to-back look at the lives of local people, and discover the pious use of worship Buddhas, and a stroll through the streets is another kind of fun.
