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

This area is frequented by many each day because of great food and great bargains that can be obtained. The streets are dotted with noodle, meat, clothing, shoes, gold shops. Long lines are great indicators of which shops the patrons rate the highest or that...More

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

I don’t think you need a guide to be honest, just jump on the taxi or tuk tuk and explore.. it is safe. You can always ask questions to the taxi driver, they are very friendly and helpful. I hope this helps .. I was alone... More
