    Must see in Bangkok. Get a fake ID card or barely known exotic food. Everything is possible here, that's the magic place))

    Khao San aka Backpackers road, many nationalities, great place to socialize with people all over the world. Try out the street food(Pad thai egg and chicken for 50 Baht)

    Been to Bangkok many times but this isnthe first time to be here. Lot's of fun and have a massage after the drinking. Try the Pad Thai on the street too. Cheap but delicious.

    After hearing many tales of debauchery, this road was surprisingly tame. Good nightlife and plenty of nice bars for a beer. Streets round here flood easily in tropical downpour - wear cheap flip flops

    This is the liveliest place in Bankok at night. Full of people from all the world partying and dancing in the street. You can find street food, live music, massage centers and all.

    If you enjoy binge drinking, bad cocktails, drunk young people from first world countries (and everything that comes from this constellation) you should definitely come here.

    Khao Sarn translates to milled rice and used to be a famous rice market. Nowadays, it has become a very popular backpacker street, with a variety of shopping, street food and bars.

    The infamous entertainment area in BKK. A partying-vibe complex popular among tourists aswell as the locals esp the young hipsters and art students. My fav place is the BRICK BAR and HIPPIE de BAR. ♥

    In former times the street was a major Bangkok rice market. In the last 20 years, however, Khaosan Road has developed into a world famous "backpacker ghetto".

    An area of numerous guest houses for backpackers. The road is closed to most vehicle traffic allowing for a living street scene of food stalls, vendor booths along with cultural shows and events.

    There are many shops with the Wi-Fi. In particular, GREEN HOUSE is good!!! The curry of this shop is delicious.

    The only way to describe it is intergalactic. Don't be confused by all the conflicting opinions on forums. Definitely stay near here if you aren't boring. If you are boring stay in Sukhumvit.

    I'm no party animal but it was fun to walk around on a Sat. night and take it all in. Should have gotten a bucket for the stroll. If you want to sleep in peace I wouldn't lodge here.

    Used to be a nice backpackers' road with cheap street food and night market goods. Sadly now overrun by ang mohs and prices have gone up accordingly.

    Take one of the side streets to Rambuttri Rd - much better restaurants, bars and spas.

    Traffic jam all the time. You may opt for taking water taxi [ Chao Phraya Express ] and stop at Pier Phra Athit.
