Bangkok at its finest
Staying on Khao San
Unless you don’t plan to sleep at all or you can sleep through a hurricane, Khao San is not the ideal place to book your accommodation. I assure you that the loud music and partying will last until the early hours of the morning. But what is ideal is to find accommodation along one of the quieter streets close to Khao San. The guesthouses here are affordable, and there are also boutique hotels that are quite clean and decent for a couple of nights. One great thing about staying in this neighborhood is that it is close to notable Bangkok attractions like the Royal Palace, the Reclining Buddha and the Chao Praya River.
A Gentle Reminder
If you’re on Khao San alone late at night, be more mindful about the people you encounter. It’s also probably not too wise to get too drunk so that you can’t walk. This may sound as a big paradox but if you’re a “responsible party reveler” then you will definitely wake up the next day with a smile on your face because Khao San, was awesome!
