Khaosan Road, BKK; Some Things to Know and Expect

A backpacker’s haven as it is; the Khaosan Road is a place that you should not miss with your Bangkok trail. This road is widely popular amongst traveler who loves assimilating with culture and enjoying the local vibes. Moreover, this place is packed with guesthouses, café’s, shops, and any hippie things that you can think of.

However, Khaosan is not just your ordinary road, it actually played a big role in Thailand’s history. Have you ever wondered how it was named? Khaosan means ‘’milled rice’’ it was called that way because it was once a rice market. So, before it was being flocked with travelers from different nations, it was a hub for the locals.

Once, it was also known as a dirty place with lots of bugs, trash, and dirt. Well, it brought a bad image about Khaosan; however, a change was being made for it.

When we visited Khaosan, I think it was perfect. Khaosan is Khaosan anyway! Its atmosphere and vibes made it Khaosan.

There are lots of tribal shops on the street with prices that you can haggle. Moreover, I could not forget how I was mesmerized by the beautiful misangas that we purchased beside the road.

Here is one of the catch; you can have insects as snacks here! Exotic right? Well, you should try it, even if you feel that its gross. It is one of the essences of travel anyway, eat local foods and experience the world. So, choose your insect snacks.

At night it turns into a sort of party place. Travelers can enjoy music and doses of beverages.

Khaosan is just a short road and it would just take few minutes if you will stroll from its end to end. However, you will surely enjoy observing its daily norms.
