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 on some of the best street food in town. Escape the chaos by venturing a little further from the main road and discover hidden shrines, friendly locals and daily life in its purest form.
"Very beautiful temple in chinatown - must to see"
reviewed 8 January 2020 by freefireman
The Wat Mankon Kamalawat (Temple of the Dragon Flower), located in the Charoenkrung Road, is the largest and most important Chinese Buddhist temple in Chinatwon, which was founded around 1871. The temple is very large and divided into many rooms, all of which are very beautiful and designed in the typical beautiful red and gold style of Chinese temples. There...
This is about a 1km walk from Hua Lamphong MRT station.
Enter via the school entrance, off to the right of where you think it should be.
A relaxing atmosphere and beautiful stained glass windows.
The whole thing is beautifully decorated.
Recommended for a visit.

"Well Worth A Visit"
reviewed 26 November 2019 by ash666
This is in Bangkok and I'm very surprised it is not already listed.
It is a good size complex across the road from Debsirindrawas Temple and another, nicer, entrance in Maitri Chit road, both not far from Wat Mangkon MRT station.
The buildings are very ornate and it should be better known.
I rarely post a bad review, but I just can't let this place mislead or disappoint others.
Florian met up with us on-time at Sheraton, and then we walked for about 8-10 minutes to get to the location. Upon arrival, we were greeted with a make-shift (putting it lightly) old, dilapidated, open-air warehouse set-up for our dinner.

Reviews don't lie...the food was very tasty. We had fried pork with rice and although I don't like pork this was amazing. Just be aware big Singha beer is really big - 620ml, we had a problem to finish it :D
We booked to come for dinner and it was sensational! The service was wonderful, lots of gorgeous wine, food was really superb, we had pork belly and crispy chicken, everything we ate was amazing, was one of the more expensive meals we had in Thailand but was nice for a special occasion.
A well-priced quirky hotel in Chinatown. This hotel is unusual looking in a good way. It has exposed plumbing and an old heritage yet modern feel to it. Facilities are fantastic. Comfortable bed, great air conditioning and a rain head shower. There is a games room located on the 2nd floor that serves free tea and coffee. I enjoyed my...
Rooms really clean, tidy and spacious. Buffet breakfast with the first nice tea and coffee i had in 3 weeks. Staff helpful and friendly. Swimming pool on the roof overlooking the river and high rises with a bar that was lovely in the evening.
Very well located and generally clean, it's a basic room with breakfast for 30$, you can't expect too much but the basics, and that's good enough. The breakfast was surprisingly good and varied, with scrambled eggs, delicious ham and turkey, fruit, and a few Thai options such as cabbage and pork soups, rice, light stirfries etc. We found the bed...
Great Hotel - clean, friendly helpful staff and centrally located for many relevant districts in Bangkok - near to the piers to get on the water taxis and many small cafes around the block - would definitely recommend
