Like in many other cities around the world, in Bangkok you also may find China Town. The Golden Buddha temple is located there, so you may combine these two attractions.

Average. Dirty. There are markets for trinkets. And they have A LOT of trinkets. But they're cheap and not particularly interesting. I feel like there are better destinations in Bangkok to explore.

Wonderful experience. Go down the backstreets and try something you would never eat at home. You will not be disappointed. Don't go into a restaurant, eat from the street vendors. Some families have had the same pitch for over 100 years. The food may not...More

Very busy, hot and crowded but the atmosphere was exciting. It is a huge complex with lots of walking if you struggle with mobility. Stop for a cool drink and a rest and then continue exploring. Make sure you hold onto young kids because it...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
