This is the oldest district in Bangkok since Chinese merchants moved to this area in the early 1780s when the city was founded.

At first I thought it was pretty tame, but getting lost in the side streets was a mind-boggling experience. Aside from all of the chaos, everything is just so weird. I had no idea what half the stuff they were selling was. I went just...More

This is, by far, the most amazing Chinatown I have ever had the privilege to visit. It is a stunning maze of alleys and small roads with a vast array of shops, stalls and restaurants. It is so full of life and energy, but also...More

Can buy things for cheap price. If you buy more than 10 pieces you will get discounts. Can enjoy Chinese food. The environment is not clean compare to the other area of BKK.

There isn’t a lot to see at the Chinatown in Bangkok apart from lots of stationary, teddies and spices. Not very busy when we went mid-afternoon. Cost around 150-200 baht to get there from Khoa San Road. Some good Chinese restaurant around the area.

Shopping by day and eating by night this is one of my favourite bustling places to visit in Bangkok. I recommend making your way to Sampeng Lane and begin your unforgettable adventure exploring the markets and lane ways. You can easily get there by MRT...More

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

Monday is never a good day to visit Chinatown in Bangkok. Would advise you to stay in another part of Bangkok and travel to Chinatown on Sunday, but skip Monday.
