Owner description: The backpacking district of Khao San Road is the traveler hub of South East Asia. Jam-packed with raucous bars and restaurants as well as budget hostels, it’s a favorite for late-night revelers.

Disappointed on this three-block long strip of Bangkok that offered nothing more that what we saw in Chinatown or elsewhere. Expecting a lively Bangkok at its best, but alas, no. We did find some excellent prices in wholesale silver on a side street but that was by chance, and they will not let you in if you do not have a business. Vendors tried to see tin as silver. Too many other great places in Bangko to see.

What’s with this place? Loud music, backpackers, rowdy, hostels, pubs and some shops selling arts, clothings, snacks etc. There are better place to be and it’s not really about finesse I’m talking about. I don’t recommend it really. Bloody waste of time.

I’ll forever love this place. I stay on Khaosan every time I come to Bangkok. During the day it can be fairly quiet, you can look around shops and get good food. But at night it’s a completely different story, loud music, street stalls with strange foods, people selling laughing gas and buckets so cheap you’ll go crazy!

Why does anyone bother with kaosan road anymore.
Between the deafening noise, the drunken or drugged out teenagers and the tasteless abundance of Hitler T-shirts.
Don't bother
