the bug stalls and the monsoon 'flood' on khao san road
some people actually eat these. there were different kinds of bugs including larvae looking things, stick insects and i swear they even had fried roaches!
khao san road, bangkok
here are some photographs i took of the infamous backpacker's hangout. like my guidebook said though - the quality of accommodation 'leaves much to be desired'. it reminded me of camden town with the markets and the 'i'm so cool' vibe.
it was an interesting introduction to bangkok though .. and i enjoyed wading through the 6 inches of water in ks road after a sudden downpour.
this is my favorite picture because i love the balloons.
