CHINATOWN. Bangkok, Thailand

angkok’s Chinatown is a popular tourist attraction and a food haven for new generation gourmands 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.

Packed with market stalls, street-side restaurants and a dense concentration of gold shops, Chinatown is an experience not to miss. The energy that oozes from its endless rows of wooden shop-houses is plain contagious – it will keep you wanting to come back for more. Plan your visit during major festivals, like Chinese New Year, and you will see Bangkok Chinatown at its best.

Pak Klong Talad, the wholesale flower market that clogs several blocks on the northern edge of Chinatown, is a cavalcade of paper-swathed lilies, orchids and birds of paradise in an astounding spectrum. If hunger strikes, head back to the main strip of Yaowarat Road for sidewalk dining on the world's best crab fried rice at Rut and Lek Seafood, on the corner of Yaowarat and Soi Texas
