Lights, food and gold

Located on Yaowarat Road, Bangkok’s Chinatown is among one of the largest Chinese communities in the world. As the home of the mainly Teochew Chinese immigrant population, many leading business moguls in Thai society today can trace their beginnings back to Chinatown.

Head down to this photogenic road for its brilliant array of neon signs that come alive at night. As a hub for all things relating to Chinese culture, an endless number of shophouses here sell herbs, gold, fruits, among many other traditional products. Amid the hustle and bustle of this lively street, you’ll be spoiled for choice for street food that ranges from mouth watering Chinese food to seafood. Don’t miss popular dishes such as oyster omelette, dim sum and noodles of endless variety.
