Let’s get lost in THAILAND – on drinking diaries and drinking buddies in Khao San road

Aside from hosting hundreds of dirt cheap backpacker’s hostels (as well as middle priced boutique type hotels), Khao San Road has lived to its reputation as one of the world’s most celebrated backpacker’s mecca because of how it has developed into a 24 by 7 party hive for every foreign tourist in Bangkok.

in Khao San, it is a MUST to:

binge on local side walk foods such as the pad thai

Let’s get lost in THAILAND – Thai Food yum yum!

finally! authentic thai food!!! (at half the price compared to Pinas lol)… for 50 baht (75Pesos), i had tom yum already, its roughly 300P per serving in Thai restos back home.

so how do i describe my ‘authentic’ thai food experience? spicey, fragrant and oily lolz…. but very delicious. my type of food! i specifically loved their fried rice… there’s just way too many things happening in their fried rice….lol.
