Loved the "backpackers road"! Awsome athmosphere, a lot of bars, restaurants, shops, massages, 24 hrs tailors...although too touristic, it was great for shopping and going out. The only place where we saw insect sellers.

If you're looking for a busy street full of life with street vendors, stores, little cafes, and mini bars, Khao San Road is an asian classic. Its full of backpackers from all over the world and nightlife here is very multi-cultural.

Khao San is the center of the backpacking world. Its crowded, bustling, with lots of cheap places to stay and bars for beer. A good place to meet other travelers to go with you on your journeys or to just swap stories.

This place is filled with tourist! But it is a fun street to visit for shopping, massages, restaurants, and people watching. The street food such as pad thai for 50 baht or coconut ice cream for 40 baht. definitely a place to check out at night in Bangkok.

A place for all the expats, backpackers, budget travelers, nightlife lovers, and anything in between. It's a fun, wild, and crazy place to be, but a must-see if you are in Bangkok.

Some love it, many hate it but either way this is usually the first stop on most backpacker's travels. An entire road lined with anything you need to outfit yourself for the rest of SE Asia a.ka. logo stamped wife beaters, fake north face bags, and a tattoo you'll probably regret.
At night tables line the streets serving the drink of choice in Thailand.....buckets. Plastic buckets filled with local whiskey, coke, and red bull fuel a friendly party atmosphere.
Just don't forget to check out the rest of the city. Contrary to what many travelers think, this is not the only place worth seeing.
This street is very loud from morning until late, so if your a light sleeper I would suggest not renting a room here.

Perhaps the original but maybe just most famous backpacker ghetto in the world. Chock full of guesthouses,cafes, street food, shopping, western food catering to drunk backpackers. It was/ still is a shopping district for Thais, but it has become overrun with foreigners and now is more famous for the party center of backpackers.

a famous backpacker street in Bangkok. The street at night is filled with tourists from the West and as well as Japanese. Hot and sweaty but great for a bargain. The main st in Bangkok, every one goes here, It even features in the film The beach. Fake bags and t-shirts and fishermen pants for very cheap if you try. it was my favorite thing in Bangkok. there's loads of pubs down it to so you can people watch. good for every one.

If you like junky backpacker ghettoes, you will like Khao San Road! It was okay, and I actually liked it better than Hanoi's Old Quarter. Sure there are touts but they aren't too aggressive. And, there's a bunch of great street food! I wouldn't want to stay here largely because it isn't convenient to the metro or skytrain, but it is a great place to find cheap used books (there is one store actually on Khao San Road) and by-the-weight laundry places.
