The gate is a landmark Icon that divides main roads 
1. Yaowarat (business day and night converts to street food mania )
2. Charoen Krung (the 1st in Bangkok)

nearby are two (2) heritage temples 
Wat Ko (Koh) the 1st temple on the royal island of Rattanakosin

Built in 1999 as part of the celebrations of King Bhumibol Adulyadej's 72's birthday, Chinatown Gate is often called Odean Gate after the Odean cinema which used to stand nearby. The words on the gate say "Sheng Shou Wu Jiang" which means "Long Live the King". During Chinese New Year celebrations the gate becomes the center of activities where people come to make their offerings.

Background
The history of Chinese community in Bangkok dates back to the time when a group of Chinese traders resided at the land where grand palace stands today. Chinatown is a lively district in Bangkok that runs along Yaowarat Road from Odeon Circle, where a huge ceremonial Chinese gate distinctly marks the entrance, up to the Ong Ang Canal which marks the outer boundaries of the royal district. Chinatown is a place which can easily be explored on foot. It is one of the best places to buy gold as Yaowarat Road is all lined with many gold shops. 


Best way to be introduced to Chinatown is to start at Yaowarat Chinatown Heritage Centre is an exciting start of the art exhibition centre located in lower level of Wat Traimit (home of famous golden budda), so much history in 1 place with many attractions nearby in crazy busy Chinatown zone of Bangkok

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.
