Chinatown (Yaowarat)

Chinatown or Yaowarat is a popular tourist attraction and a food haven who flock here after sunset to explore the vibrant street-side cuisine. At day time, it’s no less busy, as hordes of shoppers descend upon this 1-km strip and adjacent Charoenkrung Road to get a day’s worth of staple, trade gold, or pay a visit to one of the Chinese temples. Chinatown is packed with market stalls, street-side restaurants and a dense concentration of gold shops, definitely an experience not to be missed. A must visit during major festivals, like Chinese New Year, you will see Yaowarat at its best.
