Khao San Road: Bangkok’s famous party street!
Everything travellers should know
Thailand is one of the most visited travel destinations in the world. Shopping and the country’s notorious party culture are two reasons for its popularity as a travel destination. Khao San Road, a combination of several streets, is known for parties, food, shopping, and meeting new people. Although it used to have rather a shoddy reputation, the region has now become quite sophisticated.
Khao San Road is a haven for food lovers. The place is dotted with street food vendors selling a variety of Thai foods and drinks. You can find several pizza parlours, hamburger joints, and Italian places too. This region of Bangkok is always busy, and tourists need to be prepared to haggle for the best prices.
Looking to party? You’ve come to the right place. Khao San Road is fringed by nightclubs and bars. They all offer good food, cheer, and an opportunity to meet new people – all made better by live bands. You can dance all night long and eat as much as you want, and you don’t have to have a lot of money to have fun here.
Just 21 minutes from Chatirum Hotel Riverside Bangkok, a property of the famous chain of Chatrium Hotels & Residences, Khao San Road offers a diverse range of accommodation options and Bangkok event venues. Luxury accommodation is an option, but you have many budget choices as well.
Don’t forget to indulge in a bit of retail therapy while you are here. The road is a market in itself. All over the place are roadside stalls selling DVDs, clothes, and travel gear.
