Khao San Road

Backpacker mile
Known from tales and the movie «The Beach», Khao San is Bangkok’s centre for backpackers with low-priced accommodation and any number of bars and internet cafés. The district truly comes alive in late afternoon and the evening, meanwhile spilling over into the outlying lanes. A lot of fun can be had strolling between the mobile kitchens and stands selling faux designer sunglasses to have a Singha beer in one of the bars. From the bottle, of course.
