If you are heading to Bangkok, you probably already heard about Khao San Road, the area where most backpackers and budget travellers prefer to stay due to the cheap accomodation alternatives you will find in there (hostels and guesthouses) and also because of the special deals that are available for backpackers to move around Thailand.
This small road is located about a block from the Chao Phraya River at the northern side of Rattanakosin. Since almost all the taxi drivers and specially tuk-tuks (rickshaws) try to overcharge you at least 3 times more because you are a tourist and they know you are in a touristic place to stay, try to move around Bangkok using the regular boat system, from the Chao Phraya River, you can’t imagine how much money will you save.
Although Khao San is the most famous road from the area for backpackers, it’s not necessarily the best place to stay because it’s very crowded and noisy. There are many other place around this street where you can stay and of course you will find better prices for better rooms.
