Chinatown / Yaowarat
Better known as 'Yaowarat' among locals, Chinatown is
Bangkok's bustling district that never sleeps. During

tourists alike flock here around dinnertime to feast

Hi. I think that you can walk to the three temple. If you like to walk. That is what we did. We only book a tour in Chiang Mai to go to the Golden Triangle and was because this was the cheapest way to go there.
