Trick or treat: Bangkok readies Khaosan Road for Halloween debut

Slip into a scary-sexy costume next month – anything but dreadlocks and fisherman pants – when Khaosan Road reopens in time to celebrate Halloween.

Bangkok Gov. Aswin Kwanmuang said yesterday that Khaosan Road will reopen with a Halloween party, with Loy Krathong and New Year’s events to follow in order to stimulate travel and spending in the fourth quarter.

Vendors will operate 240 stalls from 9am to midnight on Oct. 31, with stalls changing at 4pm. City Hall has campaigned in recent years to win control of operations on the world-famous backpacker destination. It says 280 legacy vendors will be returning alongside 200 new sellers offering local products, with those allowed to sell changing every two months. 

Instead of the colorful scene the road is famous for, all vendor stalls will now be the same color, with cultural events planned for the revamped road.
