Khaosan Road is a short (410 meter long) street in central Bangkok, Thailand constructed in 1892 during the reign of Rama V. It is in the Banglamphu area of (Phra Nakhon district) about 1 kilometre (0.62 mi) north of the Grand Palace and Wat Phra Kaew.
“Khaosan” translates as “milled rice”, a reminder that in former times the street was a major Bangkok rice market.In the last 20 years, however, Khaosan Road has developed into a world-famous “backpacker ghetto”. In an essay on the backpacker culture of Khaosan Road, Susan Orlean called it “the place to disappear”.
Despite its reputation a diverse group of travellers can be found on Khao San Road.
