Next to Yaowarat road, this open for a general public shrine is worth a quick look while sightseeing of Chinatown. Typical Chinese style Buddhist temple, apart from being place of worship, specializes in providing affordable medial treatment to locals, conventional and traditional ways.

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
