We decided to stay in Chinatown having been to the town side previously and was not disappointed. Less touristy and lovely little lanes with great little gems of restaurants, coffee shops and bars. The main part of Chinatown is busy but definitely worth a visit

Nice place to walk, eat, gaze, and enjoy the nightlife. You'll be spoiled for choice on the number of streetfood. A short walk from Hua Lamphong MRT station (the last stop). Be careful when crossing the road though.

This place is very crowded during the night time especially weekends. It is better to take a tuk tuk there, then to take grab or a car taxi. At Chinatown, Bangkok, you can try a lot of Chinese food at a very reasonable price. You...More

Very crowded and traffic was slow. Suggested to rent a scooter for easier ride from place to place. Save times and money.

Super crowded place and traffic congestion was very bad. Suggested you rent a bike for place to place visit. Will save you a lots instead of tutu or grab.

It was interesting walking along the main China town Soi and diving into alleyway shops. Had a decent Chinese lunch. But there seemed to be no easy access to anything else. If you’re not one of the Thais hoarding gold there seems to be not...More

Good place to find some cheap stuff and copied watches and imitation jewellery. Toys, clothes, accessories, you name it and you get it here at best price in Bangkok. Must visit Demoing Market for great deals

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

Frankly speaking, you might be able to get better & cheaper massage away from Chinatown. I tired one massage salon in Year 2015 near the famous birdnest shop and find it not skillful. Therefore, I stop massage in Chinatown... More
