Khao San Road is probably Bangkok's most popular street since the film The Beach came out. Situated in Bangkok's backpackers heart you will find everything and more on Khao San Road, from cloths and food to all kinds of souvenirs to bring back home. Just when you come here you notice the hundreds of tourists walking around and realize what the movie has done with this place.
