The Guan Yin Shrine, despite not being listed in most guidebooks, is actually one of Chinatown's most colorful attractions. Guan Yin is the Chinese Goddess of Mercy, and her 900 year old statue stands on the altar inside the shrine. Thousands of locals come to pray here, and especially at holiday times, the shrine is a riot of incense and smoke and the atmosphere is extremely otherworldly. The shrine is part of the Thien Fah Foundation, which is Bangkok's oldest charity group, and the buildings surrounding the Guan Yin Shrine are actually hospital facilities, as the organization provides free medical care to the poor and homeless.



At the back of Guan Yin Shrine, there were 6 photos who were the founders of Thianfah Foundation Hospital. They are Liu Cong Min, Wu Miao Yuan, Liu Ji Bao, Wang Xing Zhou, Zhang Jian Shan, Gao Hui Shi. They built Thian Fah Hospital for treating the poor people.

In 1905 the hospital of the newly founded “Thianfah Foundation Hospital" had been openned. King Chulalongkorn attended the inauguration of the hospital, which at the beginning Thianfah Foundation Hospital had 80 beds. (He also donated 8000 Baht

Why tour here



Chinatown Gate is the entrance to many sites, a brief description of which is given below:

Wat Traimit, is home to the world's largest five-ton-plus solid gold Buddha image and Yaowarat Heritage centre

Sampeng Lane Markets, Chinatown's original main street, is now a small narrow alley. Crowded with shops selling mostly inexpensive household items and a very old Chinese pharmacy, this is definitely worth a look. 

Wat Mangkon Kamalawat is the Chinese-Buddhist temple which becomes the center of festivities during important festivals such as Chinese New Year and the vegetarian festival, founded by a former Madame who owned a brothel, is a small temple with some interesting details.

Miew Temple is one of the more open and accessible of many Chinese temples in Chinatown. 

Wat Chakrawat is one of the three biggest monasteries in Bangkok that houses some very unusual buildings as well as a few crocodiles! 

Phahurat Market is home to a large number of fabric and wedding stalls (a small community center for Sikhs and other immigrants from the sub continent)

The Old Siam is a shopping center where you will find tourist-friendly western and Thai restaurants and fast food outlets.
