Bangkok's vibrant Chinatown district runs along Yaowarat Road from Odeon Circle, where a huge ceremonial Chinese gate unmistakably marks the entrance, up to the Ong Ang Canal, which marks the outer boundaries of the royal district. However, just off the road in either direction is a whole other world where it is said, you can find just about anything. Bangkok’s Chinatown is a popular tourist attraction and a food haven for new generation tourists who flock here after sunset to explore the vibrant street-side cuisine. Packed with market stalls, street-side restaurants and a dense concentration of gold shops, Chinatown is an experience not to miss.
Highlights: China Town is known for its stunning temples, exotic street food and abundant opportunities to shop. Wat Tramit with the world’s largest Buddha, Sampeng Lane, and China Gate are some of the attractions. At night this area turns into one of the best street food locations in Bangkok.
Location: Yaowarat Rd, Samphanthawong, Bangkok.
