"Best at night." Chinatown Tip by alvis
Chinatown, Bangkok: 84 reviews and 163 photos
Yaowarat Road is the main road in China and is easy enough to get to whether from the river or just get a taxi here. Getting off at Yaowarat Road you will first notice the giant colourful chinese signs along the street and it is time to go check out all the small roads leading off the main road where you'll see plenty going on and plenty of chinese culture. There will be a lot of street vendors selling typical chinese food (not like the western takeaway restaurants). The food you will notice most is the chinese delicacy of shark fin soup and there are many restaurants specialising in this. There are also many dim sum etc. restaurants. Looking about I found a cool chinese temple and some expensive imported fruit stalls. There is a restaurant at the bottom of Yaowarat Road which I think is the type of chinese the westerner will ike called Shangri La and looks worth a meal. We stuck to some street food and a meal in a small restaurant getting dimsum and duck in plum sauce.
Address: Ratchawongsi Pier, Chao Phraya River Tour, Bangkok
Directions: To view typical China Town scences straight ahead to Ratchawongsi Road until the intersection of Yaowarat Road.
