Khao San Road Information

Khao San Road has grown from being a small side street to be the backpacker's Capital of Thailand, if not Asia. For some reason itís the place that they have decide to cluster, but may be thatís due to the atmosphere that has built up.

Itís the place to buy almost anything from crucifix to special massages at a more affordable price than in the mainstream tourist venues. You may want to get your hair dressed "Rasta style", have your body decorated or your tongue (or anything else if you are brave enough.

Spot transsexuals, and many have got it wrong, but would you? Feeling a little puckish why not try the snacks, from banana crepes to roasted scorpions. Feeling a little lazy so why not watch western movies in several of the restaurants, any time of the day. Have you ever fancied becoming an official student or journalist; well here is the place to buy a fake id within 5 minutes just for the heck of it. It's one of the cheapest places in Bangkok to buy plane or bus tickets. Should you not be able to find the right tourist information you need head to the Police Information kiosk on Chakraphong Rd for advices & bus schedules (a smile is optional but goes a long way) If you are feeling physical and can take the knocks you may want to train Muay Thai boxing. Or for a more relaxed experience, visit temples and there are actually two nice temples in the area.

Nearly every backpacker now seems to stay in Banglamphu area, in particular in and around Khao San Road. Indeed, with more than a hundred guesthouses and a good central location, this area is difficult to avoid.
Recommending a place is however tricky as most of the guesthouses look similar, very basic accommodation, a single bed, a small fan with shared toilets Also, it is also likely that you will be a few "sorry, full!" during High Season, if you arrive late afternoon or if looking for the cheapest rooms. More relaxed and quiet but also active at night is the area just at the west of Khao San, around Soi Rambutri, behind a temple. This is a popular and rather laid-back area so the cheapest rooms go fast. For more isolation, go to the North of Banglamphu, 5minuates walks from Khao San Rd crossing the Khlong (water canal). On the west of Samsen Rd or North of relaxing Phra Sumen Fort's area.
