Khao San Road’s (KSR) very own urban legend goes that in the early years it was a travel weary observer of the world, sat alongside our favourite ever changing urban catwalk with cold Singha in hand that raised the intriguing and formerly long unanswered spiritual question…..”Where the hell is everyone going?”

I am glad to say that with the now well established pit stops of pleasure seen along and around KSR, enlightenment can be attained by all visitors as the question has been well and truly answered in no uncertain terms, Thai style…

”Who cares where they’re going, they’re going to need a drink on the way…  

I am of course referring to the much welcomed cocktail van’s and mini bars (or “shot stops” as christened by Khun Dan, regular of KSR) conveniently located and usually lit with permanent festive lighting so that connoisseurs of these mind bending mixtures may easily home-in through the crowds for a quick “sex on the beach” or “screaming orgasm” whenever they feel the need………. bar staff comment that apparently ladies don’t finish as quick as the male customers, stay longer and come back again and again and again…..! 

Gentlemen, you are kindly requested to bring balance back to the force!  

Your common KSR cocktail (Mai Tai, Margarita, Long Island Iced Tea) is a must for any of my fellow bar hopping brethren who find it all too hard to move from one end of KSR to the other without the regular infusion of vodka every 50 metres along the way to brighten up the journey.

However, for some samplers of these generous, magical measures there’s a distinct possibility that you’re going to have a second heartbeat in your head or feel the need for an immediate disco nap, while many, many more of you the following day won’t remember who you were with, where you were, what you drank and why there is a stranger still sleeping in your bed… 

All in all it would be fair comment to say that these little pick-me-ups rather kind of launch you up instead.

Without a doubt these funky little watering holes offer wicked potions at great prices. So whether you’re ready to take off, need a boost or just want to lose the power of speech, give them a go and after a few you’ll happily end up with a grin as big as the Thai smile serving you.

So the question to is, just how high do you want to fly? Enjoy.

And remember…
