Khao San Road

Khao San Road walking Street

The Khao San Road is the epicentre of the Thai backpacking scene and is often referred to as the gateway to Southeast Asia. It is a melting pot unlike any other on the planet containing travellers from every corner of the planet and shops, restaurants, bars and stalls to cater to their every need. During the day the street is busy with people browsing the various shops and stalls but after dark the serious business of having a good time gets underway. Even if you are no longer a young traveller leaving home for the first time the Khao San Road is still worth a look.

Activities on Khao San Road walking street are not particularly high class. Many backpackers just chill out in a cafe and watch reruns of Friends while sipping a cold Chang beer. People-watching is also a major activity; this can be done in many roadside bars and pubs along Khao San Road. When all this becomes too stressful, there are plenty of massage parlours around. Khao san road is the centre of the backpacking universe.

Getting to Khao San Road

Minibuses leave from the airport regularly, otherwise a taxi or Tuk Tuk is probably your best bet. Khao San Road is fairly easy to get to from anywhere in Bangkok. Express boats, buses and taxis are your main options.
