Party
Mar 2021 • Friends
Unfortunately there is no crowded party anymore at the Khaosan Rd. since the outbreak of Covid. Of course there are some nice bars, nice "balloon bars" and in general nice clubs but the street is most likely dead and even if there is one crowded club, it's just one club and the others are empty. Clubbing is not possible anymore in my opinion.

Rather Depressing

Khoa San used to have so much fun and life to it. but now it's just sad. Granted, the party ban in Bangkok hasn't helped, but almost no shops were open.

Newly renovated, lacks its original flair
Jan 2021
Newly renovated Khaosan Road was an event not to be missed as one of Bangkok's draw cards for backpackers. COVID had killed off all the back packers, so what was left was an odd assortment of younger Thais and older expat farangs. The street no longer has the life and character that drew people earlier. It may recover after back packers return, but not worth visiting now.

it's changed

Khaosan Road has changed.

Ok, they took away the bike lanes - which was a disappointment. But they cleaned up the area, and made it a bit gentrified.
But then, no tourists. So basically everyone is going out of business.

Maybe next year things will get better.

Tourist trap & bar area inundated with foreign tourists
Oct 2019
Different sites appeal to different people. For travelers who want to go from bar to bar meeting other foreign tourists, Khaosan is probably a good location. There are lots of open air bars, lots of bar girls, and even more foreigners. Getting there is pretty easy - any honest taxi can drop you there. Getting out of there is not so easy. Traffic is very bad -- even by Bangkok standards -- and most of the taxis there waiting to pick-up rides are crooked, charging many times the meter rate. Walk south toward the main road and use an app to request a ride via Grab or LineMan.
This is not family friendly. Don't bring kids here. This area is targeted to college students, young adults, party goers, and players/singles.
There are some good restaurants in the area, but the pricing is also targeted to foreigners.

BEST PLACE IN TOWN
Oct 2019 • Couples
This amazing area is worth to visit for all visitors (both locals and foreigners). It offers so many things from local Thai foods, nightlife, Thai spa & message, bars & restaurants. There are many accommodations nearby from low budget and also middle range. Love it so much!

Great street life / night life experience
Nov 2019 • Friends
A few friends and I visited Khaosan road. The street is filled with bars, shops and restaurants on both sides. It's bustling and a great place to experience the Bangkok recreation life. There are abundant street food stalls and hawkers selling various items. Definitely worth visiting if you're on a trip with buddies. Night not be speaking to family outings / trips with kids

This is the best bar in khaosan road "Rocco bar". There are much people here but I don't know why. If you like hip-hop music, you will love here.

Tourist Zone in Bangkok

This isn't a must-visit place for those who seek Bangkok style.
There are many foreign tourists and this is an area for them.
I think locals who afford the costs may be interested, too.
It's not as big as I expected. I was anticipating too much from the guidebook.
