In Yaowaraj, the official name of Chinatown in Bangkok, is the home of the largest Chinese New Year celebration in Thailand. During the celebration crowds of worshippers, exploding firecrackers, dragon dancers, and families of Chinese descent swarm the streets of Chinatown. The event usually takes place in January or February and is a spectacle in which tens of thousands of people help to "paint" the streets red.

Chinatown / Yaowarat
Better known as 'Yaowarat' among locals, Chinatown is
Bangkok's bustling district that never sleeps. During

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
