All About Khao San Road
30 Nov 14 | By Mani
FoodStreet food is great and very cheap. You can easily get a scorpion in a stick if you would like to try that or kebabs which are my favorite. Tailor shops with Indians offering you deals for buying a suit. It's a messy place with a lot of things going on at the same time. So, if you are a person who is not organized I am sure that you will love this place. You will see many other street vendors selling pad thai with chicken and egg and the best part is that there is no communication problem. They deal with so many foreigners everyday from different parts that they are good at communication. So, many time you will meet a woman/man selling food or bugs and talking in Russian or Japanese. It's just the whole atmosphere that this great place takes you. Bangkok is quite a modern city but khao san road is for people who still believe in the traditional style - the old building, the hippy culture, the music or maybe not the music but it's all old classic style from the early 1990's.
Fake ItemsKhao san road has things available from college degrees to driving license. Foreigners who travel or live in Bangkok tend to make fake degree or fake licence in order to find a job in Thailand. You can easily get a licence for 1500 baht or less if you can negotiate. For an undergraduate degree you might have to pay a little bit more.
Massage ShopsMassage shops are everywhere in Thailand, so why leave Khao san road which is not only famous for locals but also for tourists and expats. Massage could be done indoors or outdoors.
Tattoo Shops"You mister, you look like a tattoo man". Cheap tattoo shops or people making tattoos on the streets. Very reasonable price for tattoo in Khao san and definitely worth to see if you don't want to get one.
Bars and PubsDon't get overwhelmed!!! Yes, it's true that a whole tower of beer costs only $20-$25 and you end up meeting other expats in bars. If you plan to go to a hippy bar then walk into some dodgy bars in one of the alleys and you will definitely find one with a foreigner with long beard playing a guitar. If you don't fancy sitting in one bar then hold a bottle of beer and do some night shopping!! Mostly for ladies though bikinis, tank tops, denim shorts and it's pretty much around 100 baht. Now that's a deal. Some hotels in and around Khao san road are also available at $15 to as much as you want.
Now It's Your TurnKhao san is all real, there is nothing fake here except the driving license and a degree certificate that they make. Now it's your turn to go and experience the busy street of Khao san road.
