An iconic landmark at the entrance to Chinatown. A beautiful gate at the end of Yaowarat road. It is probably not worth going the extra mile for, but still nice if youa are near. Easily combined with Wat Trai Mit - the temple with the big golden buddha just down the street. Take the MRT so Hua Lamphong and walk about 1km to get to the gate passing the temple on the way

The Chinatown Gate stood firmly in the middle of a huge roundabout at the entrance of Yaowarat Road (if you come from the direction of Hua Lamphong station), lit up by perhaps a 1000 watts of flood lights, as though the management was afraid that tourists would miss out such an imposing structure.

Take a guide or read up about the history. Located in Chinatown. You will otherwise just look at a monument and take photographs. We had a guide with us and she gave us some interesting facts.

This is the entrance towards Chinatown Bangkok. The gate is right next to Wat Taimrit (Golden Buddha temple) and is an excellent starting point / taxi drop off for a Chinatown walk.

This roundabout named after Odeon cinema (demolished in the 1980s) is at the head of Yaowarat the road that goes right across Chinatown its path said to resemble a dragon's curvy body.

In 1999 a gate was built here to celebrate king Bhumibol's 72nd birthday. It serves to show the loyalty of the Thain Chinese to the ruling monarchy, but also to revitalize old Chinatown as a tourist attraction. Note the inscriptions in both Thai and Chinese to honor the king. The white jade lions and rabit were added later. They were gifts of the Chinese government at the occasion of later birthdays of the king who was born in the year of the rabbit.

This gate in Chinatown is a grand entrance to the historic area of Bangkok. The ornament is very impressive. It is a short walk from the Hua Lamphong MRT station.

Nothing special here but the Chinese gate in the middle of the roundabout. It indicates the entry of Chinatown and leads directly to Yaowarat Road. Just make one or two pictures and move on.
