Khao San Road

You either hate or love this world-renowned backpacker haven

Thai noodle and pancake vendors compete for precious space with gourmet coffee outlets and Western fast food chains; two-dollar-a-night guesthouses are being overtaken by multi-story hotels boasting gleaming lobbies and rooftop swimming pools; and the experience of queuing for much-anticipated mail at the local post restante is but a distant memory amidst the fire-wire atmosphere of Kaosan’s countless air-conditioned cyber cafes. Some internet shops boast computer keyboards in Korean, Japanese and Hebrew – an internationalization mirrored just outside by swanky food stalls serving up sushi, hummus and falafel. And the street’s most recent incarnation as a pedestrian promenade means no more tuk-tuks jamming the road in search of customers for gem shop tours or Pat Pong brothels.

  • Yes, it’s swarming with tourists, but great if you need tour or visa assistance. There are also great budget food options in the side alleys off the main road.

  • Immer lebendig und farbenfroh! Für einen Spaziergang okay, shoppen würde ich z.B. aber wegen der erhöhten Touristenpreise woanders.

  • A long stretch of road seemingly tailor-made to the weary backpacker; simply arrive and find accommodations and a meal. Street performers, sex clubs, and street meat only add to the fun.

  • This is where you go to buy Chang Beer and Mister Men T-shirts, get fake IDs and pirated videos, eat mango sticky rice from street vendors, buy bus tickets, etc. Backpacker central, but pretty well-developed. There's even an air-conditioned Starbucks here.
