Bangkok, the capital city of Thailand, is one of the most developed and popular cities in the Southeast Asian region. This bustling city, which is also Thailand’s most populated city, is located on the delta of the Chao Phraya River. For years the city has also served as one of the most popular tourist destinations in Southeast Asia due to its unique culture and city life, cultural and leisure attractions, and thriving nightlife.
Bangkok also attracts a large number of backpackers, and one of the most iconic backpacker destinations in Bangkok is the Khao San Road. Considered to be a haven of opportunities for travellers with a limited budget, this road contains the essence of typical Bangkok life and is one of the must-visit locations of Bangkok.
For over 25 years Khao San Road has been a place where travellers can enjoy Bangkok with the least amount of money. Khao San Road wasn’t always a bustling ‘backpackers ghetto’; as in fact in earlier times this road was one of the main rice markets in Bangkok. This is still reflected in the road’s name, as Khao San means ‘milled rice’ in local parlance. Today however, Khao San Road is a bustling shopping and dining tourist hub. This road caters to almost every single need of backpackers and low budget travellers as one can find a range of cheap yet fancy hotels and guest houses, coffee shops, cheap street side restaurants, internet cafes, tattoo parlours, markets, and retail outlets. The road also has its own thriving nightlife as one can also find many night clubs, massage parlours, and bars & lounges, which are often teeming with activity and energy! The atmosphere and excitement, partying and just boldness of the people in the road tops off all the great aspects of Khao San Roa making it one of the most amazing landmarks in Bangkok.
