For people who like walking around, watching what is going on and what other people are doing, China Town in Bangkok is a good destination. A bonus could be that there are many places one can enjoy a good (cheap) meal.

China town was a vey interesting place to visit. The culture is incredible and the stores offer a taste of the culture. I wouldn't plan for more than 2 hours for we found it was plenty of time to take it all in.

Walked from the river boat and the signs not very clear as to where Chinatown started . Had to walk on busy roads as sidewalks taken up with street vendors .

Loved walking around here, great place to sit down in the hectic city and have a cheap noodle soup with the locals.

Little of interest unless you have never seen a Chinatown anywhere. Some temples and Chinese shops but nothing unusual that we saw.

The place was filled with tourists. Only had dinner here, and was unable to wander around due to crowd.

Very busy and seemingly chaotic this area is full of local life and colour. The food market is really interesting and the shops are varied and always colourful.

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

Bangkok's Chinatown is very different in the day vs at night. Shop till you drop in the 1km long back-lane called "SamPheng", on the south-side parallel to Yaowarat Rd. Shops there open as early as 6:30am. Also, in the West... More
