We have visited other China town's that were more impressive. But, you can probably find anything you want to buy or eat. Not much in the way of architecture, or to look at.

Went there quite late but luckily the restaurant we want to eat still open at 11 pm on weekday. Most starts closing around midnight. Had shark fin at chinatown and many others street food on the side and everything was nice.

I spent about an hour just wondering around Chinatown and the many street markets. Having grown up in the UK it was a compete eye opener and something very different to what I'm used to. It was very interesting to see the culture differences.

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

We went in the morning and all the stalls were there. As it was just before the Chinese new year the place was bustling with activity.
