We stopped by here, it was very busy but very similar to other Chinatowns all over the world. If your looking to buy gold this is the place to buy it as there are plenty of of gold shops.

This is the famous place in Bangkok for Thai street food. You can reach here through Chao Phraya river by getting off the Rajchawongse stop. It is like an area full of shops selling food and it gets really crowded in the evening. All sorts of Thai food - Pad Thai, curries, fresh fruits, etc are available here. Good place to spend the evening.

The echanting smells of the fresh spices that you see in big bags or just being hand picked, the old character of the buildings, the typical chinese displays, the order of the otherwise crowded specialised shops, makes Chinatown a good vibe area to spent your time while in Bangkok.
Also, The Golden Buddha that is in this neighbourhood has an interesting history, so check it out! (be aware not to be fooled in getting to buy a ticket to see it, it’s free entry)

Fascinating, gritty, loud and colourful. Go at night or in the late afternoon to watch the lights come on. Browse the narrow laneway markets and stalls, window shop for gold and stay for dinner at one of the many restaurants.

If you need something, for sure , this is the good place where to find.. You have absolutly everything at the market. You can also enjoy good meal on the restaurants situated on the main road. Take 1 or 2 hours to walk on the market... it s really like in China lol

Being in Chinatown it seems you are really in China. Very busy area with alot of grilling meat smell which bring you in another world. You should surely visit if your in bangkok.

Tons to see and eat in Chinatown. Definitely would recommend going in the evening when the streets come to life. Expect big crowds.

Highly recommend doing an eating tour of the area with a guide.

Thai & Chinese have been living together for hundreds of years and the mix of the two cultures showcases beautifully in Bangkok's Chinatown. Just walking down the main street is a historic site with all the red chinese letter character signs. It's a must visit while in Bangkok.
