Restaurants / Bars
at the Th Khao San Road is git many bars and restaurants, many of Rucksackresisenden be used as a party zone, there are gallons of beer in large containers and strong cocktails ... A restaurant / bar but I really liked, not so loud, and great live music in the evening. The cocktails were also very good. The bar "ROOF" is hiding something, but you just have the music on and finally ending on a roof terrace where you can enjoy a great view over the Khoa San and the wild goings can enjoy a delicious cocktail.
At the Khoa San Road can find many travel agencies where you can book a variety of tours. For a good 3 1/2 months there is also "Travel Bug", an Australian office, which has opened the first Filliale in Bangkok. Here you can book some tours with no problems, also packages as we did, that later.
I have heard from many that it is easily pulled over the table, with the other travel agencies in the Khoa San, of which one should rather seek multiple quotes.
After a very long and tiring flight from Johannesburg over Mumbai in India where we had 8h stay, we finally arrived in Bangkok.
We have used from the airport, the skytrain, who drove from Suvarnabhumi to Phaya Thai in 17min for 90 baht. Then we still had to take metro for 4 stations, which cost us 25 baht to Chiang nonsi station, from there we did not continue and have fully packed as we were a tuk tuk caught and are in a windchill 40 degrees brought to the hostel Service.
When we wanted to risk a JETLEG, we have after a refreshing shower, still took a walk to the Silom night market, everywhere colorful stalls with clothes, small items, branded watches and everyone wants to sell something. Next door, you were asked if you would like to see feel like a ping pong show. We had only hunger and so we have eaten delicious Thai at one of the many stalls after we first enjoyed a foot massage.

Southeast Asian markets tumbled Monday as investors across the region reacted to the Bali bombings that killed more than 180 and sparked fears of new terrorism.
In Jakarta, stocks tumbled more than 9 percent, and markets sank in Bangkok, Manila and Kuala Lumpur on investor fears of "Bali Effect" copycat attacks.
The Indonesian rupiah plummeted against the dollar.
Some invest...iser canceled all its charter trips to Bali until Christmas.
Meanwhile, organizers of an upcoming energy conference, the Seventh Annual Condensate Forum, shifted their meeting from Bali to Singapore because of security concerns.
More than 5 million foreigners visited Indonesia in 2001 -- about 1.5 million to Bali alone -- accounting for about $5 billion in foreign exchange earnings
