If New York’s Times Square is the definitive tourists’ street, Bangkok’s Khaosan Road is for backpackers and vagabonds. Thailand is one of the most popular countries for affordable long term travel and while it may be best known for the incredible beaches and islands, the urban culture and chaos of this short but potent central Bangkok street is an almost mandatory destination. Here you will find obscure shops, edible scorpions, crazy live acts, cheap yet delicious foods, the smallest 7 11′s in the world, so many other things as well as it being full of other backpackers. Khaosan Road is one of those places all round the world travelers should experience at least once.
