Freak Street has been somewhere that has featured in my imagination since I was a teenager and my sister followed the overland trail across Europe and Asia to India so it was such a disappointment that is not really any different from any other street in the area. Ah well the rest of Kathmandu more than compensated!
I wandered around for a while, but didn't really find anything exceptionally interesting about it. There are plenty of little shops, hotels and places to eat, but there was nothing that particularly drew me in.

I guess over time things change - it is now just another commercial street for tourists to buy lots of stuff - with not much freakiness to it - I guess everyone needs to make... 更多
I first stayed in Freakstreet years ago and have come back many times since. It ;lacks all the facilities of Thamel, but it also lacks the touts and the tourists. Its still got lots to cater to your needs but its just not as in your face as Thamel and there are lots more locals around. Its also right on... 更多
