You can easily spend a good hour or so wandering the side streets of this area of Bangkok. The alleyways are very atmospheric brimming with photo opportunities. There's plenty of places to eat, so it's worth timing a visit with lunch.

We had a walk through china town on the hunt for some food, we are both vegetarians so found it very difficult to find something we could eat. However the atmosphere and hustle and bustle of the road is really great.

We walked to chinatown from rachawong pier which is around 15 minutes walk, the walk there is through busy street markets and alley ways. Chinatown itself is interesting too and worth seeing. All in, it was a nice piece of Asian culture and atmosphere.

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
