Walked through here and loved the place. Lots of great photo opportunities, but nothing worth buying.

Chinatown in Bangkok is a real experience but get off the beaten track and get into the side Soi’s where real life exists to experience. The simple observing of the motor mechanics at work and the extraordinary amount of spare parts stacked in a seemingly...More

You could so easily get lost in this place, goes on for miles, we spent a whole day just walking round soaking up the atmosphere eating street food and getting the odd Tuk tuk around the China town part of the city. Highly recommended

Seems light going back to the 1970s. Love the walk through the small alleys, seeing things from my childhood days, lots of street foods to try and some more shopping.

This place is a must visit. There is a real hustle and bustle and really good atmosphere. There is a main road full of traffic going down the main China Town Street (so have to be very careful when crossing the road). There are lots...More

Not impressed. Guess it’s a good place to buy (none European) deep gold coloured jewellery as there is loads and loads of that kind of stores to be found, nothing interesting about this area, but in all fairness it might be worth visiting after dark,...More

I went there in the evening and found a very crowded avenue with several perpendicular alleys just as crowded. The festival of smells and sights is a real show just by itself. Go ahead, walk around and get lost in the crowd, watch Thai and...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
