BANGKOK — Some shops and venues along Khao San Road have started catering to night visitors again, but far from the bustle of the past the famous road is mostly quiet.

Khao San is set to fully reopen in August, after a clean-up and renovation during the Covid-19 lockdown.

Local authorities are currently selecting vendors for Khao San Road in preparation for the return of foreign tourists once the flight ban is lifted, Bangkok deputy governor Sakoltee Phattiyakul said on Thursday (June 18).

“In the next phase, we will renovate Rambuttri and Tani roads to beautify the Banglamphu area,” he added. “On roads not frequented by vendors, we will plant more trees to offer shady spots for tourists,” Sakoltee added.

Some venues are not open yet, as operators think it is not worth their expense.

Khao San Road is expected to be energetic and buzzing with backpackers or visitors as in the good old days at the beginning of next year. Related agencies will also organize events to draw more visitors.
