Even if you're not up for a party, it really is worth a visit. Just take a stroll down the street and take in all the craziness. The streets around Khaosan are my favourite, they're a bit more mellow and have nicer restaurants and bars.

Went there during the day, didnt get to do much. The street is around 400m long with shops, backpacker hostels, massage parlours, pubs and bars. I dont see this as a shopping destination.

Definitely a must-do when visiting Bangkok. Very touristy, with locals selling their wares. Can get better prices elsewhere but still cheap. Bartering is a must or you will be paying much more than necessary. Great prices for street-side foot massages and local street food and...More

Party street with food and souvenirs. You can easily find bar or restaurant. Good to visit but nothing special. Just another place with drunk people. Instead of khao san I recommend to do shopping on chatuchak.

Long street of food, clothes and souvenirs. We came in the afternoon so wasn't as packed and lively. But still lots to see and good bargains around! Worth a visit!

I think Kaosan road is good to young and hot age but not the best place for family trippers. However, it's worthwhile to visit here.

While you’ll see skyscrapers in most parts of Bangkok,
it’s the gilded roofs of ancient pagodas that adorn
the skyline of Banglamphu, the city’s historical and
most touristic district. Hordes of tourists flock to
this area to tick quite a few must-see attractions off
their to-do list, with the Grand Palace being the most
spectacular of them all. Banglamphu is also home to
Bangkok’s infamous tourist ghetto, centered around

If you go night market for shopping or having some street foods, i will suggest you go around 6pm to 7pm. If you looking for some night show or so drink at night, i will suggest you go around 11pm or almost ,midnight.
