“Backpacker heaven”
Reviewed 27 February 2012

Nice after an island visit to come in the hustle and bustle of this street. Nice clothes stalls, restaurants and hectic atmosphere.

“Great place to hang around for couple nigth or evening hours”
Reviewed 26 February 2012

It is nice to have a beer or two sitting in the one of the many outdoor restaurants at Khao San neighbourhood and listen to live music when the air cools down in BKK.

“busy road”
Reviewed 24 February 2012

Khao San is a typical backpackers area, if you are looking for cheap accommadation then you will find it here, but for me too busy and noisy.

“If you want to feel like you're anywhere except Bangkok (or Asia), this is the place”
Reviewed 23 February 2012

I've never seen a place so out of context and so out of characher like Khao San Road.

If you're one of those that go to Asia to live a different reality (even if just a little), I'm sure you'll agree that going to Khao San is like going to a Beach Resort to find 95% non-asian people getting drunk and listening to crappy loud music (David Guetta and much more!).

The only 2 great things I found on Khao San are the cheap shops (you can pay up to 30% of the original price) where you can buy really nice tshirts, backpacks, iphone covers, etc (all reallly nice fakes).

The other thing is Brick, a local Thai bar with live Music inside Buddy shopping, at the end of the shopping gallery. I truly recomend this if you want to see live local bands and local audiences have fun!
