Bangkok’s Chinatown is a popular tourist attraction and a food haven for new generation gourmands who flock here after sunset to explore the vibrant street-side cuisine. At day time, it’s no less busy, as hordes of shoppers descend upon this 1-km strip and adjacent Charoenkrung...More

This place is a hustle and bustle of activity! Loved the flower market! Best viewed on a bike!!! There are a few that run half day tours, try spice roads, or grasshopper adventures

I generally do enjoy strolling around Chinatown and eating there. This one in Bangkok stands out after sunset. It becomes nicely lit and colorful. Go there, take a stroll, pick a restaurant and have your dinner. There are plenty of choices, I relied on trip...More

This could be overwhelming so I suggest you do it during the day which is still crowded but less than at night. The smell and activity is a lot. The stall owners usually do not bargain at least I did not find any willing to...More

Always busy and chaotic. Lots of tourists but so many great places to find food, shops etc. Great street food and great markets to walk through. You can also do bicycle tours and visit tourist attractions on your way through china town

Feels like every Chinatown I’ve been too, particularly the one in Manila! It’s a bustling place with cheap wares and some good food. To get here, you can get down at te Hua Lamphong station, walk a bit until you reach Yaowarat road.

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.
