Backpackers Paradise: KhoaSan Road
They say Khoa San Rd in Bangkok is a backpackers paradise because you can find just about anything there. It's where Leonardo DiCaprio drank snakes blood at the beginning of The Beach, a movie that forever etched Thailand into my heart.
When on Khoa San Rd, be sure to eat outside of your comfort zone. Here are a few ideas.
Try a deep fried scorpion on a stick for less than $1.00
Order a "big" beer and then invite people to join you. $18 (We discovered this gem by accident and Nick learned the valuable lesson of being specific to the locals.)
Have a big plate of Pad Thai for breakfast. Or lunch. Or dinner. Anytime! About $2.
Snack on a bag of fresh cut mangos for only $.50.
Or sip refreshing coconut water straight from the coconut for about a dollar.
Of course there are tons of other places to eat other than on Khao San Road, but if you're there, be adventurous!
