<> Chinatown

share this page 

Along Yaowarat Road you will find Bangkok's Chinatown, while Pahurat Road is the home of the sizable Indian community. 

Bangkok's Chinatown is the country's largest Chinese district, a sprawl of narrow alleyways, temples – including Wat Traimit and it's famously heavyweight Golden Buddha – and shophouses plagued by thundering traffic and choking fumes.

 It's all packed in between Charoen Krung (New Road) and the river, separated from Ratanakosin by the Indian area of Pahurat – famous for it's cloth and dressmakers' trimmings – and bordered to the east by Hua Lamphong train station

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

    Eating


    So many worthy nominees, Bangkok (Thailand) is a champion of culinary taste delights.
    • Chinatown is arguably the mecca of "food tours" 
    • A major aspect of local culture is street food, if you need a few tips try Thai food $1 Menu, ideally you should have a local host or a few drinks to give you the confidence to try (try NOT die). 









     

    Rooftop


    • Chinatown does not have significiant rooftop vantage points back across the city skyline but it's so close to nearby venues such as Bangkok's most famous, the skybar









     

    Nightlife


    • Chinatown is limited nightlife, it's more relaxed ad hoc venues along the river, the good news is your minutes away from neighbouring zones that have nightlife such as Bang Lamphu - Nightlife zone khao San Road

    Shopping



    • The mecca of Markets, it's bustling and bargains, if you've got the patience and desire then you need to visit 
    • the range in Chinatown shopping
