I really had higher hopes for this, but I did not find a pedestrian area common to other worldwide chinatowns, just Yaowarat Rd which was congested with vehicles full time. There are no MRT or BTS lines into Yaowarat rd, and that is probably the...More

Either this was a complete disappointment or we missed something here. All we found was fish restaurants selling shark fins and big lights. No lanterns, no proper nice Chinese food and no cheep deals to be had.

I’m very picky with food but I couldn’t help trying the rice with crispy pork and Chinese tea at a famous Chinese street restaurant. It was great! There was lots of sea food & my guide says it’s the best in town. I don’t enjoy...More

Went to eat street food, and really didnt find much. There were a couple side streets that had street food but nothing that really interested us. Mostly regular Thai food you can get on any street. We also thought there would be a long street...More

We arrived at Chinatown by Ferry and,after a short walk from the pier at Ratchawong, you are soon immersed in the street life. Small shops, food stalls, commercial traders, people everywhere, manic traffic and congestion everywhere. Never seen any other Chinatown like this one. Fantastic...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
