cuisines. As the sun sets, the road is illuminated by the colorful signs and people crowd the street to get some food. If the nightlife is not for you, then visit a Chinese temple during the day. There are also many little shops to visit. You are sure to want to keep coming back to see if you missed something on your first trip.

Loved the market especially the food street at night. Great place to pick up gifts that don't cost the earth. Loved the crowded bustling streets; the aromas ...

STREET FOOD. Yarowat as the locals call China town is a street food haven in Bangkok. Try the bird nest soul or the shark fin if you’re daring. Also slip into some of the side streets to find small markets or even lowkey bars.

Unfortunatley I read there are plans of big renovations in Chinatown and that will be losing a lot of its actual charme. So enjoy it while you can. At night its amazing, look at the pictures

Foodies rejoice! Chinatown in Bangkok is known for many things, cheap tat, interesting sights, bustling neighbourhoods and a different glimpse of life, but it is most known for its street food. The array of street food available is stunning, and you probably will not receive much of a mark up as a tourist. There are alleys to wander down, things to see and smell, and many photo opporrtunities. Give it at least 3 hours.

Bangkok Chinatown is very busy and crowded. It seems old, dirty but it do have new faces. You can find any Chinese food and things you want.

Sanam Pao. This type of steamed bun is traditionally eaten in the morning and comes with a wide range of different types of sweet and savoury fillings. Sanam pao originate in China and are a type of dim sum that is cheap and easy to eat as a snack or with a main meal. Some of the best sanam pao can be found in Chinatown and include buns filled with sweet red pork, chicken curry or custard. They are also sold at 7-11 near the counter.

For me this is not what I am seeking on a vacation. It is too busy and far too commercial. There are some great bargains and delicious food to be had.

A classic stop for any visitor. The streets are full of Chinese shops and early in the evening plenty of city lights makes this district very nice. Have a dinner (of course) on the street, in order to taste the best mix between Thai and Chinese cuisine.

Chinatown a.k.a. Sampeng it’s the only place in all of Thailand to get cotton quilt fabric at cheap prices. Chinatown is packed with traffic, crowded with people, and is hustling and hopping 24 hours a day but there are a lot of chinese resturant with amazing food. You can't leave thailand before eat street food here

One of my favorite Chinatown's in the world. This place feels like China. I used to shop here for my Chinese class notebooks and for my brushes.

Mobbed as Bangkok is with tourists, Chinatown here still gets fairly few foreign visitors. More's the pity, because it's a zone of fascinating street markets, great food, and a host of picturesque shops selling everything from machine parts to Chinese Buddhist paraphernalia. Staying in Silom? Walk back from Wat Pho rather than catching a taxi -- it's a long hoof, but there's more than enough to entertain you along the way.
