Khao San Road - Bangkok

THAILAND | Saturday, 10 Oct 2009 | Views [7631] | Comments [5]

More pictures Many travelers have mixed feelings about Khao San Road, the travelers ‘district’ in Bangkok. Its not the real Bangkok, its tawdry and commercial and is pitched only at the Westerns who are just passing through. It’s fairly unique though, ... Read more >

NEPAL | Sunday, 11 Mar 2007 | Views [4662] | Comments [3]
