Khao San road...ok to take kids?

Hi everyone,

Sorry if this is a silly question, but is it ok to take our for children down Khao San rd? I know it has a lot of pubs and is mainly for young people so I'm not sure what to expect. Is during the day visit still as good as a night visit?

We took the kids to Patpong markets the other night, so I guess nothing is off limits now! Lol

Thanks in advance

Yeah it is okay. You will have to figure out the bus system or pay for a meter taxi. No Skytrain service in KSR area.

Perfectly safe and certainly not seedy on KSR. Its a good fun sociable area for all ages and nationalities. Its very serene and sleepy during the day but very busy and noisy with many people, live music and market sellers from about 7pm.

Depending where you are already staying in Bangkok, I like travelling to KSR on the river transport from taksin pier before 7pm getting off the boat at Phra Arthit stop.

.....with or without braids but often believing they are roughing it and are experiencing the "real" Thailand by staying in the KSR area and eating B10-20 cart pad thai.

Sure, you can take the kids to Khaosan road. It's not an 'adult' street like Patpong. There are some nightclubs along the street. But nothin to worry about. And a lot of nice fast food places for the kids.
