Visited on July 10th, 2017. Just as an experiment, I carried my regular size and EMPTY backpack on the back of my back (not in the front as other TripAdvisor members have recommended). Results of this experiment: after a 10 min walk through the stalls...More

Long narrow roads full of stalls managed by Chinese people, lots of stuff to buy, can take a cycle tour also. Best place to look for Chinese herbs and medicine.

It's ok but I was a bit disappointed. Focus in the narrow streets close to the river if you can just grab a bike and wonder though them

Very below average stuff, no imitations unlike all other Bangkok markets and quite a distance from the city centre. I would not recommend this market go visit the pat pong night market instead conveniently located close to the city and temperature around night is more...More

You'll find anything and everything here!! Go early morning so that you can make a full day of it, as you might get lost within the maze that is China Town, but don't stress -- you'll find your way and buy loads at a very...More

Parking is pretty average around here and it is pretty busy and there are lines for certain foods. We went here to try shark fin soup and goose leg noodles as my Thai friend wanted us to and she loves the soup. Both were alright,...More

Nothing to see and explore. Though street food starts as early as 6PM. Waste of time during daytime.

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

Bangkok's Chinatown is very different in the day vs at night. Shop till you drop in the 1km long back-lane called "SamPheng", on the south-side parallel to Yaowarat Rd. Shops there open as early as 6:30am. Also, in the West... More
