Finally we are in Thailand! Khao San Road, a famous backpacker district in Thailand and maybe in the world. This short street with a strong sense of memory is refereed to “the place to disappear”, or “a short road that has the longest dream in the world.”. “It is not for Thais to hang around in an ordinary day. We never go there. I don’t even know what it is like.”. This is what one of my Thai friends who live in Thailand told me. Khao San Road used to be a place for rice trade more than a few decades ago, and slowly developed as a stopover for Thai business customers from provinces, then later became a world backpackers sleeping spot. Now the street can be flamed as one of the loudest party spots in the world. A girl from Thailand who had breakfast together on street with me asked me “why don’t you party in Thailand? It’s a party place!”
If you want to see how “other kind” of Thai people live like, this can only be a place to sleep on the first few days to gather some information for your next stop.
