Anywhere in the world Chinatown can be good or not so good. This was nice. It has character and atmosphere. The markets were full of life but not the cleanest of places. Venture further away from the main streets and you will find some beautiful shrines and temples, ancient buildings, quirky coffee shops, art and more. Like another world. We had a guide and did a tour of the area. Trust me there is so much history and we would not have seen half of it, had she not been with us!

I went on a weekday but it’s was busy anyways, maybe because it was shortly before Christmas. It’s a nice place to buy smal stuff or souvenirs also you can find good prices for gold there. Many Food Stalls around but some Food is truly Chinese and may not for everyone.

The Side streets are packed and many people are trying to make their way through them sometimes even a scooter appears in all the busyness.
In general it seem everything can be brought most of the stalls are no chains and therefore truly local so spending some money their supports the local economy.
I would recommend a visit and walk through China town for everyone who stays longer than 3 Days in Bangkok.
It’s good for souvenirs, every day items and also Chinese food and drinks as well as herbal medicine.
Fresh fruit and meat is also sold in some side streets which is quite interesting to get a touch of another culture.
There are also shops for gold and Jewellery around which I never brought something but seems to sell genuine and for fair prices.

COVID-19 Situation:
Everyone wears a mask or at least most people do nevertheless the side streets are very small so it gets crowded which increases the risk of infection means take care and do not try to touch your face without proper hand cleaning procedures before.

Due to COVID - this was the only area of town that was open after 9pm and full of people enjoying the street food and main strip. We went here several times during our December 2021 stay in Bangkok due to everything closing around 9pm. I would say it was open until 11pm or perhaps a little later. But we got there shortly after 9pm. You absolutely MUST try the freshly squeezed pomegranate juice (you will eventually walk past the vendors who are selling it)! And the orange juice tastes more like super sweet tangerines!! YUMMY!!

This unique place is a mix of Chinese and Thai cultures. Opening all day but lively at night. It's an outstanding atmosphere to walk at night and find many good Thai and Chinese street foods for your dining.

Most of the restaurants open at night but if you come early you can visit Mangkon temple first. It's founded in 1871, perhaps the oldest Chinese temple in Bangkok.
