Khaosan Road – backpacker enclave in Bangkok

How could I ever introduce Thailand on my website without including Khaosan Rd. – my second home. Khaosan Rd. is one of the most awesome places on earth to start your journey to whereever. This is where I learned about Thailand, Thai food and Thai people the first years. Ever since I have broaden my perspective but still visit the place every time I come to Thailand. Its a very laid back feeling here. Everything is slow and relaxed. The street is full of budget guest huses, restaurants, bars and travel agencies. Khaosan has now expended to a few other streets next to Khaosan.   

Why go to Khaosan Road: The best and cheapest place in Bangkok to buy everything you need before starting your journey: Tickets, shorts, music, backpacks, t-shirts, fake student ids, sunglasses…

Best experience at Khaosan Road: Songklan festival 2013 and drinking

 You will get tired of the sales people pretty fast but the trick is not to get eye contact with them then you are off
