A visit to China Town is an experience not to be missed, especially if you are looking for an authentic Chinese meal, and especially during the Chinese New Year celebrations. Avoid the large posh looking restaurants, and go to one of the small local restaurants,...More
An unexpected chance to visit was a not to be missed experience. From the hundreds of small shops with souveniers of all descriptions, a choice of restaraunts and cafes and the Chinese temple. Amazing.
Chinatown always was a little different and not to be compared with e.g., Orchard Road. However, cleanliness and no-smoking policy was exerted wherever possible. Nowadays, littering is the rule and, even worse, smoking - mainly among youngsters - became fashionable. Incredible amounts of cigarette butts...More
We love this area, Buddha tooth temple is a must and then plenty of cheap shopping and eats. Food street is slightly more expensive than the hawker centres but nice area to sit and eat and watch the work go by. Good place to pick...More

ladies tailor and Longines or Tag Teuer ladies watches- (6 Replies)
Could anybody recomend a ladies tailor in Bangkok? I have been there before but not long enough to find a good quality one. I would like to take my own fabric to be made up as well as have some other garments made. I only have four days there this time. Also where is the best place to buy a genuine Tag Heuer ladies watch - Sydney duty free or locally in Bangkok? Is it worth going down to Chinatown to buy good quality fabrics, buttons and sewing needs or are there other places in Bangkok...More

There are tailors all over the tourist areas. Many of them use the same seamstres, I have had several suits made and fit well. Good Material. and hold their shapes. The Tag Heuer watch may present a little delima. Bangkok has to be one of the Most Counterfit areas I have ever been, There is no way I would even consider buying a "REAL" expensive watch there. Some of the fakes are almost impossible to tell, Until the back comes off. Watch for sharp edges on the bands, Is a real tell tale...More
Is Sampeng Lane worth a visit?? Opening hours?? (6 Replies)
Hi. I am looking at going to Chinatown one night for dinner on our upcoming trip to Bangkok and whilst I was researching I read about Sampeng Lane. However, it seems to close at 6pm. Has anyone been there and do all the stalls close that early? If so, is it worth another trip back to Chinatown through the daytime to go to this laneway? We are only in Bangkok for 3 nights.

Yes, it close at 1800, you come to visit Sampeng mkt at 1400.Just walk through the wholesale mkt or u buy something u fancy but watch out for pickpockets. From here u can visit the Old Siam plaza and relax here under A/C till dinner at Yaowarat for seafood. (T & K seafood Restaurant) . From Sampeng mkt, can proceed to Old Siam Plaza by taxi meter or Tuk Tuk , vice versa for dinner at night. This way , time management for 2 visits is covered.Do bring along a hand towel to wipe your sweat...More
