    Chinatown, during day time is a fantastic place to shop for cheap goods, dry snacks, and enjoy architecture heritage of olden days. From around 6 pm, the place turns into a foodie paradise, with all sorts of fantastic street food, and snacks.

    Old jail turned into a park. The architecture is simple, but this historic structure once housed Thailand's most hardened criminals and you should at least visit once if you can.

    One of Chinatown's older restaurants - the place is usually packed with a long queue up front. Even if you don't want to eat, or are not hungry, still walk around this lane, and take a few snapshots.
