Khao San Road

Khao San Road

Ground zero for European and American backpackers traveling on the cheap (who all seem to wear identical uniforms of t-shirts and elephant-print pants), this avenue is also a hub for vendors that delight in provoking shock and awe. Expect everything from street carts selling fried tarantulas to monkeys wearing diapers that will hop on your shoulders for a small fee.
