Bangkok: Khao San Road

Bangkok: Khao San Road – The Hangover 2 Place – Last year, I’ve wanted to go to Khao San Road during my Bangkok trip in 2012, but I didn’t get the chance cause I was busy checking out other night market. The recent trip had gave me another chance to visit the scene from Hangover Part 2 – Khao San Road!
If you read from Lonely Planet or any online source, this place was very famous for Caucasian backpackers with lots of cheap hostel, bars, internet cafes and Pad Thai! But it gets even famous now, still to the tourist, but from everywhere of the world, Asian, Blacks, everyone young and energetic just loves this place.
You can hear music blasting off the bar while walking pass food stalls, and imitation branded stuff stalls as well as some little fashion boutique stalls. Tourist roaming along Khao San Road and the alleys with a beer on hand, backpackers with handful of luggage and camera, booth that can help you make fake ID, Thai walking around selling exotic food like scorpion, mobile bar with Chang and Singha Beer… Well, this place is just awesome at night.
I have a friend told me that it gets even more happenings after 12 when 7 Eleven stops selling beer and mobile bars move out all scale to sell you beer, music turns even louder, the whole street literally become an open party area. Too bad, I couldn’t experience that, it rained during my visit. Down. Nevermind, will go again the next time!
Fruit seller!

Cheers with Singha!
