About Chinatown

Chinatown is one of the bustling commercial districts in the western part of downtown Bangkok. It is also one of Bangkok’s oldest neighborhoods. Chinatown dates back nearly 200 years. The houses here are mostly older, but business is flourishing. Almost all of the managers are Chinese or overseas Chinese. Chinatown is connected to 3 main streets (Sampeng Lane, Yaowarat Road, and Charoen Krung Road) as well as many other streets. Chinatown has retained the traditional culture typical of China and the customs and characteristics of the Chinese community. Business is booming. You can feel the rich Chinese atmosphere in Chinatown. Every year, there are lively lion dances and dragon dances during Lunar New Year.

    An old Chinese street, but also in which we can see that the living environment and architectural features of our ancestors in Taizhong in that era are also worth looking at. The street is a little dirty, but it's a little intimate. A lot of people buy it as if the market buyer chain store is like going to a Buddhist temple at the end of the road and then entering a little bit is the bus and train station.

    It's rather hot. Chinatown is very busy. All kinds of small grocery stores and special stores are too numerous to see. Most of them come here for a good meal. Seafood Street is almost full. There is also a pig soup restaurant on the street. Dinner time is crowded with people. Snacks are full of various flavors waiting for you to choose. ~

    Chinatown is located on Yaowarat Road and Charoen Kung Road, where stores are clustered and groceries are available from north to south. On the Traimit Road at the end of Yaohuali Road, there is a solemn Buddhist temple called Daimit Temple or Golden Buddhist Temple. Its body is made of pure gold. It is 3 meters high and weighs 500 kilograms. It is said that it is the largest golden Buddha statue in the world. Compared with other parts of Bangkok, coming to this Chinatown and seeing the Chinese character signs and colorful lights in the streets gives you the feeling of Thailand and Hong Kong. Having been to the famous T K seafood twice, I feel good and have to queue up. Maybe there are too many guests. It's small and narrow, and the food is neither cheap nor big bowl. I was sweaty and tired. I had to eat seafood in the air-conditioning room, so I didn't complain. The local products here are dazzling. One by one, the guests, especially Lin Zhenxiang's shop, are crowded with sweepers. It feels like they don't need money. Ha-ha. A lot of things on the street are afraid to buy at random. They are too cheap to be fake. Street snacks are good. Here I have eaten superb PDUDDING STICKY RICE, only 10 BAHT one, which is sold by AUNTY of a handcart. No, you can come here and experience Thailand like Hong Kong.

    There are many gold shops in Chinatown. The price is cheaper. About rmb260 or 1G. Many people go to travel on New Year's Day. Because there are food with Chinese characteristics on Chinese Street near the Spring Festival. I was touched by the two-day Thai food. The price is very high.

    It happened that we stayed in Chinatown on the 30th of the New Year, but the hotel did not see any Chinese New Year. So we went to Chinatown for a short rest. It really did not disappoint us. The streets were decorated with lights and people came and went. Many Chinese and Thai people were busy setting up the stage to prepare for the celebration. Many stores are decorated with festive and exhilarating decorations. Fruit stalls and snack stalls are joined by one. Fresh pressed pomegranate juice is delicious. We had a New Year's Eve dinner in the restaurant and went happily till very late. This New Year's Eve is unforgettable.

    Chinatown is opposite Bangkok's South China Peng Railway Station. South China Peng is also there to make it easy for many people to run in the night on the two-station subway from Bangkok's Lumpini Park. There are many kinds of snacks in Chinatown. During the Spring Festival, the princess will see the Chinese people in Chinatown. The police will be on guard. No free mineral water is allowed on the streets.

    One of the main features of Chinatown is that the whole street's billboards are in Chinese, the shop staff can speak Chinese, and the snacks and food they buy are Chinese food. Chinese people bring Chinese food to Thailand, such as sausage powder and porridge. It's very good to taste these Guangdong snacks in foreign countries. At night, the streets here are really busy. It's suitable for people to come to eat at night. They must come to eat. Because the boat had not been there long ago, we need to take a bus from Chinatown to Kaoshan Road. If not, we can ask Chinatown Chinese. I remember that bus No. 1 can walk back to Kaoshan Road near the Grand Palace. The local Chinese are very willing to help.

    The western part of Bangkok is one of the busiest commercial districts in the city. Its scale and prosperity are among the highest in Chinatown in Southeast Asia. This Chinese city is about 2 kilometers long and stands on the west side of Taijing City. It is connected by three streets, Sanping Street, Yaohuali Road, Shilong Military Road and many streets and alleys. It is one of the neighborhoods of old Bangkok and has a history of nearly 200 years. Most of the houses here are old, but the business is very prosperous. The operators are almost all Chinese and overseas Chinese. The strong Chaoshan style is the biggest feature of Bangkok Chinatown, where Chaozhou dialect is unimpeded.

    I went to Bangkok four times, and I had to play Chinatown every time. When I went to Yindu in 2014, I found out that Yindu seafood had special crisp goose paw stewed, fresh and sweet crab forceps, fried rice with excessive crab meat, and cold bird's nest dessert. On the way home after dinner, I saw Longwei Temple, Qitian Dasheng Temple and the largest Chinese temple in Thailand. We also passed a street of medicinal herbs and coffins. The following three times in 2015, 2016 and 2018, and three times in Yindu Seafood Restaurant, each time there are new discoveries and new experiences. Generally speaking, Chinatown is a must to go to Bangkok, Thailand. Many people say that Bangkok only has the Grand Palace, Kaoshan Road and Siam commercial district. There is nothing interesting about it. That is you have never been to Chinatown!
