Possibly the most frequently visited street for backpackers in Thailand – if not in the whole Asia – is Khao San Road. As soon as the night in Bangkok starts falling, the bright neon boxes advertising all sorts of businesses light up, and Khao San comes alive. While the street is not much longer than 250 meters, the amount of street vendors, travelers, and backpackers alike make it seem endless. If you are looking into meeting the maximum amount people from all ends of the world in the shortest time possible, we don’t think there’s a better place to go than Khao San. We went for a walk from one end to another with some of Asia Exchange students studying in Bangkok, and wanted to share a couple do’s and don’ts.
Big thanks to every student who joined us for the Khao San night walk! Have an amazing semester everyone!
