The place is uninteresting and disappointing. I really shouldn't have expected much from this place. It looked like it was the dirtiest place in Bangkok. The bars and restaurants were just so-so. There are other places in Bangkok that are worth your time.

This road is very interesting. You can get restaurant food, street food, legitimate massage, women, go to a bar, get nicknacks, travel agency advice, clothes as well as other things. In that I don't drink alcohol and I am married, I only went to eat....More

We went to see it one evening and I really didn't like it. It was very seedy. Lots of places to eat and drink but you constantly get mythered. Load music, lots of bars more tailored to stag or hen parties

We wound up here on a tour we took. Was fun to get in the middle of the action of Khao San Road. Great place to eat, people watch and souvenir shop. Lots of 20 somethings hanging out partying...

Khao san road is a buzzing place day and night, with a large selection of places to eat whether it be at a reataurant or from a food cart, there really is something for everyone ....

This is a great place for backpackers or tourists on a low budget. The location to tourist attractions is very good as most of the main ones are all walkable from here. The street itself is full of massage parlours, bars, tattoo and Henna parlours,...More

I'd imagine khao San is fun if all you're interested on is partying. However, better food and market stalls (at much better prices, with owners much more willing to barter) are found around this area rather than on Khao San itself. It's worth a visit...More

From cheap street food to flashy establishments, you have it here. On one stretch there were these pushy dudes offering anything from pad thai to massage, but otherwise this place is worth a visit.

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

Yes, and make sure that you don't believe anyone you encounter on the way there if they tell you it is closed. That is a scam trying to get you to go somewhere else.

Your question is not understandable. Lack of information. What type of license. I think that this is a spam.
