It is very funny to spend a night in Khao San Road, especially if you are interested to find curious examples of Thai food, including deep-fried insects. Many different places where to have a "normal" dinner :)

There is no doubt this area of Bangkok is well visited by the younger (and older) generations both during the day but more especially at night to enjoy the many bars and food establishments which are everywhere. There are a lot of tour companies in...More

We only walked down this road because it was on the way back to our hotel. If you're in Bangkok for culture, don't go to Khao San road. It's full of westerners, western restaurants, cheap souvenirs and badly spelled t-shirts.

Not comparable with the Khaoson like it was until 07/2018: since 1st of August 2018 the shops are prohibited to sell on the street before 6 p.m. Khaosan now looks like any other street during daytime. The night life seems to be louder and more...More

this area to tick quite a few must-see attractions off
their to-do list, with the Grand Palace being the most
spectacular of them all. Banglamphu is also home to
Bangkok’s infamous tourist ghetto, centered around
