This place sells a lot of Chinese stuff. If you are going, may need at least half a day to explore the place. Recommend to go in the late afternoon but traffic will be congested towards early evening. Watch out for traffic especially if travelling...More

Chinatown is always busy and crowded. If you walk in a crowd and you think it can’t hgt worse, a motorcycle will drive through the crowd. Just go with the flow and everything will be alright.

Wonderful food, a paradise in a city that offers some of the worlds best food. Chinatown here has atmosphere, from the neon main streets to the historical alleys.

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

Monday is never a good day to visit Chinatown in Bangkok. Would advise you to stay in another part of Bangkok and travel to Chinatown on Sunday, but skip Monday.
