Chinatown Shopping


2015-09: 3 kms West for Siam Centre
 
Chinatown, also called Yaowolat after the neighborhood’s main street as the major shopping destination for decades.
If you can handle the crowds, heat and confusion, this is the best one-stop shopping neighborhood in the city. With so much history it's alive with adventure, see links below.

BTS skytrain DOES NOT not enter this zone, MRT subway station is close as too is the River Ferry.



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
