China Town is worth a visit to put it on your 'I did it' list, but its very busy, not many great places to eat and overall not much to see! But it is on the 'to do list'.

Night time is best to stroll Chinatown. The best bet is to follow the long lines, the locals seem to know best. Its a little schetchy walking close to traffic to snake past the many street vendors, but its nothing but hundreds of street food...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
