KHAO SAN ROAD SYNDROME [^] 1. I shall wear as big a backpack as possible to bear proud witness of my creed. 2.I shall not leave Khao San road without a Lonely Planet guide. 3.I shall wear the traditional backpacker's uniform and don at least one piece of local clothing (e.g conical hat in Vietnam, a karma in Cambodia etc) 4. I shall eat banana pancakes and Phat thai on regular basis, for it is quintessentail Asian food. 5.I shall stay in the cheapest guesthouse. More money for beer. 6.I shall drink the local beer, for I shall always endeavour to be in tune with local culture and because it is cheapest. 7.I shall make pilgrimage to a Full Moon party and Hat rin at least once in my life. 8.I shall bargain without mercy and hone my skill to a sharp edge, so that I can proudly proclaim our sacred motto " I get it for less than the locals". 9. i shall not leave Khao san Road without having my hair coloured, dreadlocked, corn-rolled or shaven off.
