During the day the Yaowarat area might disappoint: it's busy, lot's of car traffic, some might find it dirty and on a hot day the smell of food and herbs mixed with car fumes might prove to much. BUT visit Yaowarat by 6 pm or...More

Hussle it's busy hot and mad, you can get some good food but overall head over check it out and get out of there. Smells real bad and rats where bench pressing the food venders... becauful where you step it could be messy.

Great place to visit and get a taste of Chinatown. Walk the streets and ally ways, taste the food, and shop. The sites, the smells, and street noise can be a very different experience.

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
