    Walk along KSR during the day as they pack out the bars drinking buckets, playing on phones and watching their only impression of Bangkok go by......

    Most get as far as the Grand Palace.

    Then they'll go home and tell everyone how hectic and crap Bangkok is.

    Expats always try to have this pseudo nuanced 3rd position on KSR.

    Its a great place. I enjoyed it. Playing pool at Gullivers. There's also that cool hookah bar upstairs. Lots of 40 year old Thai office workers looking for a good time.

    It closed years ago, 2015/16?

    Gullivers and the hookha joint ? Its prime real estate. Must have been replaced by something

    The whole of Khao San is closed at the moment I think. And they've just redone it all making it look lovely and boring.

    It seems the pavements have been widened to facilitate them being crammed with street vendors.

    COVID has put a bit of a brake on it actually reopening that way, though.

    There's a video below of how it looked fairly recently.
