Real Life Captured #296: Khao San Road at 3AM in Bangkok Thailand! Part One (10 photos)

December 2019 · 3 min read · Bangkok

Wow! What a mess! Oh, well, maybe I shouldn't be that harsh; but then again maybe I should be! Khao San Road is the original Back Packer Mecca of the World. This is where the whole backpacker culture got started. Back in the 70s or early 80s, for some reason this street in Bangkok is where the first backpacker hostels got started; in fact they were just some families offering a spare room for a couple dollars a night.

Fast forward about 50 years and this is what you get, see photos below! This whole area of the city now caters to much of the backpackers traveling through the country. Almost everyone who comes to Thailand comes through Bangkok and many of them stay a few nights right here in the Khao San Road area. I always say if you meet anyone here that has stayed for months, they probably did too much acid.

This is a grungy place. It's almost like the Disney World of grunge, grit, grease, and grime! It's a place where you can leave your self respect at the door. The place embodies a real give a shit attitude and that really applies as day turns to night.

There is nothing like some twelve hour time difference jet lag to get you up at 3 AM. This is when Khao San Road turns into a real cocktail of fun, crazy, happy, sad, and big old mess all at the same time! Now come along and maybe you can feel good about seeing this from the comfort of you home! Enjoy, Khao San Road Bangkok at 3 AM!
