Create an itinerary including Khaosan Road
Spend a while walking down the short and entertaining thoroughfare of Khaosan Road. Named in honor of its rice milling heritage ("khaosan" means milled rice), nowadays this relatively small stretch caters mainly to backpackers, with a range of accommodations, travel agents, and bars. Somewhere between a party street and a place to organize your onward journey, the road provides services and entertainment to an almost exclusively international crowd, with English spoken in every business. By day you can explore the plethora of souvenir shops and international cuisine, before the music and dancing begin at sunset. Use our Bangkok day trip app to visit Khaosan Road on your trip to Bangkok, and learn what else travelers and our writers recommend seeing nearby.

  • This busy street has changed a lot over the years. Since the legislation change regarding cannabis, smoke shops are springing up my the dozen. Great night life, shopping & people watching.

  • Visited 5 years ago and enjoyed the atmosphere, this time won’t be returning as music is just to overpowering. To many people trying to heard you into the bars , the surrounding streets are much nicer

  • Known as backpacker central. One of the top night market in Bangkok. It’s a short street in Bangkok. It’s also famous for its vibrant entertainment scene. U can find a lot of budget hotels here. It is often considered to be an obligatory stop for travelers who are backpacking their way through Asia. For me. It was just an ordinary night market. 👍🏻
  • lively area and well known for travelers area for nightlife and sunday morning cars and bikes event. highly recommended place to visit in bangkok
