Khaosan Road’s Skid Row – Backpacker Style


Pattaya One

Recommended Posts

I saw this guy crashed out on the pavement recently, on an early morning walk down Khaosan Road in Bangkok.

He was kicked awake by the street cleaners, which is a pretty ignominious way to see in your day in Thailand, and he was being watched by an assorted rum looking bunch of all night backpacker boozers and some shockingly terrible-looking ladyboys, sorry ladyblokes, in this case, in presumably police-connected bars which stay open all night on Khaosan Road.

I’d stayed in a hovel many years ago on Khaosan Road, on my first ever visit to Thailand, and vowed never to stay there again. The room was noisy, dirty, swealtering, it had a small fan, no windows, and the walls were so thin I could hear cockroaches eating next door.

Maybe not so stupid or pissed (up) after all…
