Best city for backpackers
Sure, Bangkok’s Thanon Khao San (Khao San Road) is a bizarre fantasy of what the backpacker-created hippy trail used to be, but it’s a must-see stop before you head off to explore Wat Pho and other temples on Ko Ratanakosin and the mercantile marvel that is Chatuchak Weekend Market. Load up on street food sà·đé (satay) sticks and enjoy the exuberant atmosphere.
Detour: With branches around the country, Jaroenthong Muay Thai Gym has a training centre a short walk from Thanon Khao San. There are courses for beginners if you want to try out this martial-art while you’re here.
