  • Chinatown was a bustling place with amazing sights and snarls from all the various food stalls. Squid and scorpion on a stick were just a few strange sights. Just grab a stool or box and feast on...

  • The greatest street food locations. Popular food such as dim sum, oyster omelettes, flat noodles in a pepper broth, and lots of fresh seafood.

  • A great day out in the Chinatown area. We were fortunate to be there for the vegetarian food festival and Chinese national day. It was great to see the dragons out on the streets. We also enjoyed the Wats shrines and street foods as we wondered through this historic district of Bangkok.
  • The scenery in Chinatown is very beautiful, there are many apartment buildings and restaurants on both sides of the road, but it is so congested that it is no longer possible to walk or take food. The seafood here is delicious and fresh because it is near the sea, but the price is quite expensive compared to its value. We met some Thai people who knew the Vietnamese language and greeted us, which was unexpected and interesting.
  • I have visited multiple Chinatown's in the world but this one impressed me the most. During the day a lot of trading of various goods is happening in the small streets. Make sure to not only visit the main street but to wander off into the smaller ones. In the evening a lot of activity moves to the main streer where you can get a lot of different type of food. The Bangkok Chinatown is home to the latgest Chinese population outside of The Chinese Mainland.
  • THE CROWD IS CRAZY ON A SATURDAY NIGHT. Like, seriously crazy. I don’t know if every Saturday is like this or maybe on that day when I visited, it’s a special day for them or something but the crowd is way too much. Way too many people on the streets, cars are like honking in every corner and amidst all this, there are loud booming music playing somewhere, there are young buskers (they look like kids or students?) on the streets singing and strumming their guitars away…so it’s safe to say that Chinatown is a VERY happening place at night. On a weekend no less. Maybe way better than your normal Saturday night fever at some club, drinking your soul away. Most of the stalls on the road side are selling food, snacks and drinks. They have a huge variety though some are selling the same thing but nevertheless, you’ll get to pick something out. And, if you’re lucky enough, you might catch them performing some dragon dance thingy, though I couldn’t really see it cuz i was busy eating pork noodles. Be careful of your bags and pockets tho. Everyone is squeezing between each other, walking like a penguin cuz the road is small so don’t put your bag behind, carry it in front of you. If you have things in your pockets, best to keep your hand on it or pass it to your friend who’s got a bag to hold it for you. Overall, it’s a nice place to visit, highly recommended.
  • Great place for Chinese foods - traditional or Thai-inspired. Impressive "Guan Yin" temple, nearby
