This is the oldest district in Bangkok since Chinese merchants moved to this area in the early 1780s when the city was founded.

Most major cities have their own Chinatown but this one is continuously bustling. Doesn't matter if you are there early morning or late at night it is always alive and culturally amazing. Some good bargains are available there.

It is a large area, with a lot of shops and stalls. The dept stores in the area usually sell the same things at a cheaper rate. The one thing that was different was that motorcycles use the small alleys and are always in the...More

Crowded and well lit place. Good for a seafood feast, especially fried crab with curry. Make sure you pick one with a fan/aircon to properly enjoy your feast if you can’t tolerate the heat.

Like in many other cities around the world, in Bangkok you also may find China Town. The Golden Buddha temple is located there, so you may combine these two attractions.

Average. Dirty. There are markets for trinkets. And they have A LOT of trinkets. But they're cheap and not particularly interesting. I feel like there are better destinations in Bangkok to explore.

Chinatown / Yaowarat
Better known as 'Yaowarat' among locals, Chinatown is
Bangkok's bustling district that never sleeps. During
the day, the main street and its small alleyways are
filled with a vibrant mix of colours, scents and
flavours coming from the roadside restaurants and
all-day markets. The real action, however, happens
after sunset. Surrounded by neon lights, Thais and
tourists alike flock here around dinnertime to feast
