Khao San Road, Bangkok

(8,500+ reviews on the web)
Neighborhood
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 couldn't be easier to arrange your visit to Khao San Road and many more Bangkok attractions: make an itinerary online using Inspirock's Bangkok trip generator.
