Khaosan Road
Khao San Road is known as the Bangkok backpacker central, yet has no historical sights to speak of. Even so, its location in the Old City (Rattanakosin) makes it an ideal base from which to explore Bangkok’s classic attractions. That's not to say there's nothing to look at or admire here, though. On the contrary, being a hub of unwashed humanity means Khao San Road is the perfect place to do some people watching, and only minutes’ walk away lies the distinctive bohemian atmosphere of Phra Arthit Road. Regular Khao San backpackers know this bustling strip for its easy access to the Chao Phraya River Express boats, too.
