There are many food stalls and restaurants here, obviously, but there’s everything whether you want a quick meal or a nice sit-down meal. It’s not the prettiest street or any thing but it’s really cool to see and try different Chinese foods!

We explored after lunch. It was hot. Lots of restaurants to try plenty of Chinese food. Lots of small streets to meander and take in the sights. Shops selling dried seafood, gold jewelers, shoes, clothes, hardware, souvenirs, snacks. Tip: evening is probably a better time...More

I love shopping in the Bangkok, Chinatown. I buy gifts and fabric there, regularly. Be aware that it can get very crowded, and the aisles are extremely narrow. You will get pushed and shoved. If possible go in the morning as it only gets more...More

Vibrant nightlife immerses you in the city’s heartbeat. Go for the food, the people, the music, the sounds, the upscale restaurants and bars, and the nightlife. Most importantly, go for yourself.

You need a whole day in this town as there are so many stores. You actually find really good stuff at a very reasonable price. Unfortunately, we couldn't stay long because we visited during rainy season and it rained on us hard.
