Spend a while walking down the short and entertaining thoroughfare of Khao San Road. Named in honor of its rice milling heritage ("khaosan" means milled rice), nowadays this relatively small stretch caters mainly to backpackers, with a range of accommodations, travel agents, and bars. Somewhere between a party street and a place to organize your onward journey, the road provides services and entertainment to an almost exclusively international crowd, with English spoken in every business. By day you can explore the plethora of souvenir shops and international cuisine, before the music and dancing begin at sunset. Use our Bangkok day trip app to visit Khao San Road on your trip to Bangkok, and learn what else travelers and our writers recommend seeing nearby.

ヘナタトゥーの出店が沢山あります。ウロウロしてたら客引きがあるので、どこでやるかもさほど迷いませんでした。陽気な人が多く、タトゥーを施してもらったところを乾かしていると、そこを触るフリをして脅かしてくる通行人が何人もいました。タイの人がもっと好きになる通りです。 more »There are a lot of stores of henna tattoo. Since there is a barker when I was wandering around, I did not hesitate too much where to do. There were a lot of cheerful people, and when the place where the tattoo had been given dry, there were several passers-by who pretended to touch there and threatened. It is a street that Thailand people like more.
