Khao San Road
As a backpacker, visiting Khao San Road and ingesting one of these creepy crawlers is a right of passage. You will find a handful of pushcarts stocked full with everything from scorpions to tarantulas to silk worms. There will also be freelancer bug sellers, if you will, with a tray of an assortment of crunchy snacks for you to choose from. Thailand is one of nine countries that eats bugs as a viable source of protein and not simply for the shock value alone, although Khao San Road seems to be the exception to this. According to a 2014 US News & World Report Travel article, other countries that eat bugs include China and Ghana, where eating bugs is a necessity when other foods are in short supply. Khao San Road is not located off any BTS Skytrain station, so the best way to get here is to take a taxi. This will be easy, as a driver will know exactly what a foreigner is saying if the destination is Khao San Road.
