Known as the hippie and backpacker area, also the area of well-known Democracy Monument and other landmarks, Khao San Road is the definition of quintessential backpacker culture, and also does an excellent job catering to its clientele. One draw is the cheap accommodations, which can easily be found on sites like Hostelworld or Booking.com. The ambiance of the area is both English-speaking friendly and colorful, drawing an international crowd into its funky storefronts and street shopping. Though Khao San itself is only a short street, the entire area around it is a fantastic hangout for people watching, drinking, and partying. Food is never far, and though prices are a bit higher, it’s certainly worth a visit. No BTS trains go to this area so prepare for a bit of a walk or a tuk-tuk from other areas of the city.
