There has been a ban recently to support vendors and street food operators from being in the area. We turned up around 4pm and the whole place was a ghost town, literally no one was there. Well done to everyone in charge in destroying an iconic tourist place.

No trip to Bangkok is complete without going to Khao San Road, especially if you like people watching. Lots of different places to eat, stay, buy things, and so many people to watch. A great place to visit.

Really bizarre. Used to be a very lovely place, now there was hardly anyone there. Bannings on street food and vendors have hurt the area.

The street is very lively and fun! It is a great experience to see the road in full swing after 6pm. Lot’s of great bars and street food to taste. Definitely worth a visit.

I thought it will be like in the Beach where DiCaprio had snake blood... Not that I had any intent of drinking it... But it's not like it's advertised is pretty average

Couple of nice of places with live music, there was this guy who was singing Bohemian rhapsody and the entire restaurant was singing along.... Things like this make it worth while

And there are guys selling scorpions and other insects only for the brave... I'm not sure what harm this stuff can cause but better to stay away and don't do it if somebody dares you...

We had food there in one of the restaurants.

With a slight cool breeze and good food with some music made it a worth while Saturday night...

Totally confused. Heard this was some iconic street, so we went to visit. Arrived after visiting Grand Palace and it was so quiet. It was just a normal road. Utterly pointless visit. Nothing like what is portrayed in movies or tv.

This is a great place to go if you want to acclimate yourself to SE Asia. It caters to those who are not seasoned travelers. This is a good thing because there are far too many people who claim to understand SE Asia while only being there for a few days. I lived in the region 7 years and always enjoyed playing a tourist at Khao San. I would listen to the best and worst advice with a smile. This small street has most of the lessons you need to learn in Asia. Adventure,new friends,decent shopping and a colorful group of Thais.

This street is tourist trap. Loads of shops, bars and tailors. The best times are over. Crovded and overpriced. It all started here. But now the spirit is gone. I suggest a parallel street - Soi ram Buttri. There you can experience what tourists loved on khao san.
