In the northern part of the Old City, Banglamphu offers pleasant strolls, interesting markets, and Khao San Road, one of the world's best-known backpacker hubs. Khao San has become a truly international street, with visitors from dozens of countries populating the scene year-round, and an equally diverse selection of restaurants and street vendors. During high season 10,000 people a day call the area home.
