In and around Khosan Rd is an area where young travellers and wholesale shoppers meet.
This is a well-known backpacking accommodation area in Bangkok. It is packed with youngsters traveling through Thailand and enjoying their stay in Bangkok.
Although on both sides of the street jam packed stalls with clothing and other items can be found it is by far not the cheapest place to go shopping for clothes, for this you need to go to Pratunam market.
You will find well know food chain stores and a lot of “copied” CD’s (movies & music), loose tables with just a chair and umbrella (not shops or even stalls) where you can get temporary tatoo’s, or get your hair braided
Then in the shops behind the stalls you will find a lot of Sterling silver shops selling only to the wholesale buyer. Therefore a mix of visitors that have nothing in common accept that both are visitors in Bangkok.
This is not the place to stay if you do not want to party with the youngsters fresh out of school or college. You can visit it during the day and experience this hustle and bustle, excitement and energy
