|Khaosan Road in the afternoon|
Hi all! Today I want to talk about one of tourist attractions in Thailand. I know someone know this place well if you ever come to Thailand or being interested in travelling in Thailand. That is Khaosan Road!!.
Khaosan road is the famous lane in Bangkok. There are lots of tourist accommodations with cheap price. It’s full of shops ,bars ,Thai restaurants ,massage and foreigner!. Moreover, here are a lot of tourist agencies. You can buy tourist package or take a van to other tourist attraction in Thailand such as Ko tao, Samui or Ko pra-ngan.
|He's very popular. There are lots of tourists want to take some photos with him.|
Even if Khaosan road is famous in Thailand, I’ve never been to here before until today. I came here today because I just wanted to know how it is. Why do lots of foreigner tourists want to come here? It’s a simple place for me.
While I was walking to Khaosan road and almost arrived at there, I met few of foreigner tourists passing me. They said “Sawasdeeka/krub”,that means ‘Hi’, to me. When I stopped walking for letting them pass me first, because the street to Khaosan road is narrow, They said “Khob Khun ka/Krub”,that mean ‘Thank you’, and smiled to me. I felt very good with them. I think they learned Thai a bit before coming here.
When I arrived at Khaosan road, I was surprised. It’s full of foreigner. This place could be ‘Free Thais area’. I found Thai people very little. Most Thais are merchants. Here can be called ‘international street’.
There is another something I’m surprised. I saw lots of merchants who were selling suit. They aren't Thais but they are Indian.
|Tuk-Tuk, I suggest you take it to anywhere close form here. It's very fun!!|
I found most foreigner tourists here learn another Thai word that is ‘Mai aou ka/krub’ means ‘I don’t want it’. Because merchants here try to recommend something to sell to tourists and I found tourists said “Mai aou ka’krub” immediately.
Certainly, when you come here, you will see merchants try to sell something to you such as suit, tourist package or even grilled scorpion. You may be annoyed sometimes. If you aren’t interested in theirs, just say refuse to them.
I heard that Khaosan road at night is very fun. I regret that I could be here late because I came here alone. It would be not safe for me when I was on the way home.
For me, I think I love people here. They are friendly. I saw lots of tourists look happy to be here.
Looking tourists happy to travel in Thailand is my happiness even if I don’t do anything to them.
