Khao San Road, famously known as the backpacker's haven, is a 410-meter-long street in central Bangkok with street food stalls, bars, shops, restaurants, nightclubs, cafes, and massage parlors. This road also has one of the most famous night markets in Bangkok.
You will find the most random things at Khao San Road. From a fake Harvard degree to stalls selling barbecued scorpions, this place will not fail to surprise you! You can buy tie-dye hippie outfits, sunglasses, shoes, souvenirs, jewellery and much more. Make sure you brush your bargaining skills before coming here as the shopkeepers might try to sell you stuff at a higher price. You can also enjoy traditional Thai food, like the delicious Pad Thai and Thai crepes (Khanom Bueang). If you are not faint of heart, you can also try a bagful of fried insects! Fried insects are considered as a go-to snack in Bangkok. The insects include grasshoppers, water beetles, spiders, bamboo worms and scorpions. These are served with sauce and a pinch of pepper.
