11.30pm – Nightlife in Khao San Road.
This street is amazing! It doesn’t stop! Full of people from every part of the world. All the people happy people! Very good ambience. The party is in the street with many bars competing with the loudest possible music. My favorite bar was called Golf Bar Cocktails, with a yellow billboard in the middle of Khao San Road.
«Advice» There are many 7/11 shops along Khao San Road and Bangkok. The party takes place along the ouside street and the 7/11 shops sell beer until 10pm, so you can get here the beer with a better price than the bars.
