Khao San Road becomes lively about 8/9 and finishes up at about 2 am. It is a road filled with bag packers from all over the world drinking cheap buckets. There are many street vendors selling all forms of Thai food and small crickets like...More

Good food along this stretch. The suit sellers are very pushy but the general shop owners and food stalls are not and allow you to shop. Night time is for the bars and clubs but they just spill out onto the street. Overall no Bangkok...More

A great visit in early July. It is okay to visit the street with family; kids, tweens, and teens before 22:00, just keep the family close. Watch for random bikes and motorcycles. The street food is delicious and so inexpensive. The t-shirts, pants, and other...More

Very busy and touristy. But a nice area with all the stalls and restaurants. The streets just off Khao San are the best.

Khao San is a "must have" when you travel to Bangkok. However: The street is quite unspectacular at daytime, but crowded in the evening. If you are out for party, its definitely your spot. The quality of food etc. is not that good. The area...More

While you’ll see skyscrapers in most parts of Bangkok,
it’s the gilded roofs of ancient pagodas that adorn
the skyline of Banglamphu, the city’s historical and
most touristic district. Hordes of tourists flock to
this area to tick quite a few must-see attractions off
their to-do list, with the Grand Palace being the most

Bangkok’s infamous tourist ghetto, centered around
