Khao San Road | ถนนข้าวสาร **

(map) In this famous backpackers "paradise" one can find market stalls and shops cheap T-shirts, baggy trousers, souvenirs, illegal DVD's, music CD's and not so cheap second-hand books and travel guides.

Illegal student cards, press cards and other documents are for sale right under the nose of the nearby police station, but I wouldn't recommend buying them. In some countries in the region, especially Singapore, counterfeit documents can cause you a lot of trouble and even time in prison if you get caught.
