Khao San Rd
Where the worlds young travellers meet.

Khao San Road is a favourite crossroads for the young travellers on a budget. It has evolved over the last two decades from just one small hostel providing low-budget accommodation become one of the worlds most well-known destinations. It has been featured in many movies and television documentaries.

During the day, Khao San Road is the scene for back-packers looking for a cheap room while others are arranging transport to their next destination in Thailand or overseas. Some will be just chatting with friends over a cup of coffee or a bowl of noodles.

At night, it turns into a lively thoroughfare lined with street stalls selling cheap clothes, handicrafts, souvenirs and thousands of other items. The lights are on at the many bars where the travellers tell tales of the days adventures and discoveries and the plans for tomorrow. Khao San Road is not just for foreign travellers, many young Thai people like to hang out there, including members of the TV and film production industries.

The location is very convenient for visiting the many tourist attractions on Rattanakosin Island. It is just a 10-minute walk to Sanam Luang and The Grand Palace

Getting there

Neither the Skytrain (BTS) nor Subway (MRT) go near Khaosan Road 

The Ferry (River or Canal) are or close but close at 8pm. 
Taxi/tuktuk or M.Bike in the evening rush-hour is risky, not all drivers are keen because of traffic gridlocks. By 9 pm. however, access shouldn't be a problem.

One could write a book about the Khao San Road nightlife, legendary in Bangkok

It certainly never sleeps, that is for sure. But it has come a long way from its reputation for just being an endless string of mindless backpacker bars. These days, the scene ranges from old homes to nonstop action clubs and the clientele is just as much Thai as it is foreign. 

If you want to party and dance to loud music then try the new happening Superflow City Beach Club, or either the ska oriented Brick Bar or the electronic music venue, 

The Club, both on Khao San itself. For something a bit more chilled, you can head over to Adhere the 13th, a hole in the wall live blues bar that is one of Bangkok's most written about nightspots. Not too far away is the northern Thai themed Madame Musur, which has a very relaxed vibe combining chilled tunes with great food and drink. 

Nearby Jazz Happens is a venue for university jazz students, set on Bohemian Phra Athit Road. Another institution is Brown Sugar, a boutique jazz bar named as one of the world's best bars by Newsweek. Even better, why not just sit out on the street in one of the funky and colorful VW Bus Cocktail bars that are found on the west side of Soi Rambutri, offering cheap drinks, great people watching, and a fabulous atmosphere. 

The ultra cool Bombay Blues Bar is located here as well. Your only dilemma in Khao San Road will be which nightlife to choose, and we hope this list makes it easier for you.
