As expected. Lots of bars and massage places. Typical street sellers selling touristy stuff. Found a few places selling Thai sweets. Yum!

With this being the main tourist street of Bangkok, we wasn’t disappointed. Everything goes on here! Bars, massages, bug eating, street food, shops, suit making, tourist shops. It’s a really cool place to come and a must visit in Bangkok!

The road is buzzing with backpackers, but unlike what you’d expect, the shops are neither authentic nor cheap. You’ll find authentic food and night scene in many other places around the city and any goods can be purchased for much less at the MBK center.

Your trip to Bangkok is not complete without a night, or two, on Khao San Road. Eat before you go! Guy some beer, or a bucket, eat some scorpions, dance your face off, and eat banana pancakes. Life is good on Khao San Rd. Mind...More

Banglamphu
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
spectacular of them all. Banglamphu is also home to
Bangkok’s infamous tourist ghetto, centered around
