One place where travelers either love or hate is Khaosan Road in Bangkok, Thailand. I can understand the animosity and the love. On one hand it is loud, packed with tourists, and not the real Thailand; conversely, it is a melting pot of tourists from all over the world.
Personally, I loved the energy and the time I spent on Khaosan Road. Every time I visited I was by myself and within minutes I was talking to people from Europe, South America, other parts of Asia, and Thailand. I also like all the tourist information you can gather here. It is simple to get visas for Cambodia and Vietnam, bus tickets, internet access, and affordable food and guesthouses.
This is Ivan from Europe and Joe who is a tuk-tuk driver from Thailand. I met these two on the road, and we ended up hanging out all night. It is easy to find good company on Khaosan.
