Busy, noisy and not particularly cheap. It is what it is... a primarily a backpackers area. Many bars competing for your business with placards and hustlers on the street offering the best deals. Street carts offering more western food options , such as kebabs, than...More

It’s highly recommended to go and visit Khao San road. The food there is delicious. You can see a lot of street food vendors along the street. some exotic food are available. The money changer located in that street has great exchange rate. Highly recommended!!!

You have to at least spend an hour or so exploring Khao San Road. It's packed with street vendors, stalls, restaurants and bars. Everyone is trying to sell you something. You can get some great deals though, so don't be afraid to shop around and...More

Woah, Khao San Road is an experience. It's not for the faint of heart. Khao San Road is the underbelly of Bangkok, all soft and exposed, all smells and yells. In Khao San you can get accommodation that's cheaper than a haircut and street-peddlers harass...More

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
