Bangkok has a lot to offer, and even one long road could be enough for you to feel satisfied the entire night. Take the Khaosan road, for instance. This road is one of the most enticing places to visit at night. Tourists are all over this road, and the fun activities don’t seem to end. These are some things to do when you’re at Khaosan.

Stay up all night

Although in some areas in Bangkok, the night ends early, it’s not the same in Khaosan. When you’re there, everyone stays up all night. Some bars are open until 3 in the morning. You can also find 24-hour cafes nearby. Make sure though that you remain safe, especially when the crowd starts to thin out.

Have a good time

You can’t say no to a night of drinking when you’re at Khaosan. There are tons of bars available. You can even find one that sells beer by the bucket. Whether you intend to head out with your friends, or you’re alone, you will have fun with these chains of bars. You can even find lovely people to share the night with.

Try eating bugs

It seems crazy, but bugs are available in this street (or in many others areas in Bangkok). From grasshoppers to spiders, you can find them all. You might find them weird, but if you’re up for a challenge, you can try these gooey creatures.

Get a massage

Like in many other streets in Bangkok, you will find tons of massage shops in Khaosan road. The good thing is that some of them are open even in the wee hours of the morning. You can have a nice Thai massage after walking the entire length of the road.

Get a tattoo

If you’re even more daring, you can find areas where you can get a tattoo. They are all over the place, and some of them have professional artists whose work will fascinate you. If you’re trying to be daring, but aren’t, you can opt for a henna tattoo that will fade away after some time.

Watch people

Khaosan Road is exciting since it features people from all over the world. You will see them interact with each other. The fun part is when people start to get drunk. You can sit on one of the side benches and observe people. You might even notice chaos in the area. You can’t get enough of what you see.

Shop until you drop

The entire road has shops where you can find souvenirs and traditional clothing. You can also haggle with the street vendors. These shops start to open in the afternoon, so you can shop early and drink at night.

To stay safe, it is best if you find accommodation in the area. Even when you party all night, it’s easy for you to walk back to your hotel. You can check out the best places to stay in Khaosan Road with quality amenities and are easy to access. If money is tight, backpacker’s dormitories and budget hotels are also available.

You can’t leave Thailand without dropping by this road.
