Went thru here on my day bike tour. Definitely the grandest Chinatown I’ve ever seen. Great markets off the Main Street, lots of food options, and there is a tiny restaurant that won a Michelin Star that is always packed. Give yourself extra time if...More

We love Chinatown..it is what it says on the tin. Real atmosphere, Some shopping and lots of restaurants, many with seafood. We had a couple of exquisite meals there, Reasonably priced if you look at restaurant choices. We sat outside and liked that

I really had higher hopes for this, but I did not find a pedestrian area common to other worldwide chinatowns, just Yaowarat Rd which was congested with vehicles full time. There are no MRT or BTS lines into Yaowarat rd, and that is probably the...More

Either this was a complete disappointment or we missed something here. All we found was fish restaurants selling shark fins and big lights. No lanterns, no proper nice Chinese food and no cheep deals to be had.

Chinatown / Yaowarat
Better known as 'Yaowarat' among locals, Chinatown is
Bangkok's bustling district that never sleeps. During
the day, the main street and its small alleyways are
filled with a vibrant mix of colours, scents and
flavours coming from the roadside restaurants and
all-day markets. The real action, however, happens
after sunset. Surrounded by neon lights, Thais and
tourists alike flock here around dinnertime to feast
