Bangkok is one of the most populated cities in the world and the most populated city in the kingdom of Thailand. It is a fascinating and boisterous city receiving over 22 million tourists each year, while the Khao San road plays a significant role in the tourists’ experience.
Bangkok is a city with a lot to be proud of, from incredible history to mouthwatering culinary heritage and, of course, the renowned Bangkok nightlife. Among one of the international visitors’ favorite spots when the sun sets, is Khao San Road.
Although it is quite a short avenue, and sometimes it even feels too short, the activities that this little street can offer every day during nighttime are diverse and full of surprises. Whether you want a chill out in a relaxing place with a cup of tea or perhaps party until the sun rises the next day, the Khaosan Road will deliver your wishes..
Here are just a few ideas for you to choose from while touring Bangkok night tour.
Khao San Center Bar
With an aptly location right in the middle of KahoSan Road, the dormant open-air terrace comes to life when the sun sets. Opened 24/7 it is the perfect spot to get your first taste of Thai nightlife, with abundant drink supply and several food options. It is not ‘the’ place to spend to much time in but it is simple and cool down to have a drink before setting out for a big night out in Bangkok
Music enthusiasts will wish they never had to leave this place. The owner of the place is no one else than Nu Vudthivichai, one of the most acclaimed pianists in Thailand, and Jazz Happens welcomes a steady crow every night to enjoy the performances sponsored by the University Jazz Faculty. Besides admiring the jazz talent, the place also offers rich and tasteful culinary options, so it’s a nice spot to indulge in some Thai food before either hitting a club or going back to your hotel.
One of the most popular clubs among locals, Lava still attracts a vast crow of tourists every night. Its scarlet ambiance, and the fact that it is located in the basement of Bayon Building, will make you feel as if you have walked through a door to the underworld itself. With several DJs playing throughout the week, the tunes are mostly electronic and hip-hop oriented and you can expect the party to last until the early hours of the morning.
The Club Khaosan
The name might not sound that original, or attractive, but if you want to experience the real essence of Khao San Road nightlife, The Club Khaosan will have your back. The dance floor here gets so crowded that you’re likely to end up dancing back-to-back to complete strangers from all over the globe. The laser and light show combined with the enormous sound system playing house and techno tunes make it a preferred spot for new-comers and returning partygoers alike. The crowd is generally young and drinks are arguably one of the cheapest of Khao San.
Your visit to Bangkok can not and WILL NOT be complete without at least one visit at the Khao San Road, which you can complement with a stop at the best night market Bangkok – The Flower Market, a one of a kind flowers and vegetable wholesale market, and Asiatique Riverfront, an open shopping mall that perfectly combines modernity and tradition. Touring through Bangkok at night is a somehow unforgettable experience.. great drinks, Thai massages, shopping-spree, get a real taste of street food, and everything in between.
