Bangkok - Chinatown (PDF Chapter)

Chinatown embodies everything that’s hectic, noisy and polluted about Bangkok, but that’s what makes it such a fascinating area to explore. Hit the area’s big sights – Wat Traimit (Golden Buddha) and the street markets – but be sure to do some map-free wandering as well.

- dine alfresco at Nay Hong and the dozens of other decades-old street-food stalls that define this neighbourhood

- feast your eyes on 5.5 tonnes of solid gold Buddha at Wat Traimit, one of the country’s grandest and most famous temples

- watch chaos and commerce battle it out in Chinatown’s frenetic, photogenic fresh-food market, Talat Mai

Coverage includes: Neighbourhood Top Five, Local Life, Getting There & Away, Sights, Eating, Drinking & Entertainment.
