This place is famous for great food. The queue is always long for bread, Bak-kut-Teh, Kuay-Chap. It is always very crowded here. Transportation is not so convenient here, only can take Tu-Tu or taxi. However, before you board the taxi, ask to go by metre,...More

Same as Chinatown in NY or San Fran. Too many people crowded into stores crammed full of cheap stuff from China. Skip this one unless you like being jostled by strangers in narrow aisles between shops.

If you haven't had enough shopping at Chatuchak market or in Siam Square (MBK and others), Bangkok's Chinatown is a shopper's paradise. Crowds are the norm as is bartering. It is fun to wander through the streets at the various vendors.

Chinatown, consisting of one main street and a few sideways. The best way to visit this place in the evening. You need to count with a huge screech, noise, countless number of advertising ads and various scents hovering in the air.The main streets have beards...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.
