Walking through Chinatown or up and down Yaowarat road is almost sensory overload. You should come here with an appetite and open mind. I tried some bird nest soup and shark fin soup along with multiple grilled meat and fruit combos. The lighting at night...More

Take a stroll around Bangkok Chinatown & discover the street side restaurants, antique shops & the many Chinese goldsmith shops. Very interesting for tourists & locals, especially during major festivals, like Chinese New Year, and you will see Bangkok Chinatown at its best.

Chinatown / Yaowarat
Better known as 'Yaowarat' among locals, Chinatown is
Bangkok's bustling district that never sleeps. During

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.
