Khaosan Road, Bangkok

Neighborhood · Shopping
Spend a while walking down the short and entertaining thoroughfare of Khaosan 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. Use our Bangkok day trip app to visit Khaosan Road on your trip to Bangkok, and learn what else travelers and our writers recommend seeing nearby.

  • It is a great party place for foreigners, everyone have an alcohol drinks on hand . There are many stalls selling all sort of exotic foods like fried insect ,crocodile meats and etc..I been there twice few years back when i living in Bangkok ,just chill in a bar enjoy live band and beer with friends because we dont the chaotic environment throughout the whole street.
  • Lots of Beer, Music, Full of Fun
  • It’s very sad to see the street dead quiet. I hope the good days will back soon.
  • Wow. This city never sleeps, nor does the party ever stop.
  • It was packed with tourists, is sort of out of the way from downtown Bangkok, and not sure if worth the visit. Definitely not worth a second visit. But you can try insects as food, and alligator.
