Like many global metropolises, Bangkok’s Chinatown is a popular cultural hub for locals and tourists alike celebrating the vibrant flavors of China. The star of the show is the street side cuisine that is a haven for foodies and a new generation of gourmands that flock here with an appetite after the sun has set. Officially marked as Yaowarat Road, this 1km strip offers street stalls, hidden side-street restaurants, a dense concentration of gold shops and the opportunity to pay visit to several Chinese temples. The energy oozing from this corridor is contagious and climaxes around major festivals and Chinese New Year. Come hungry and let your soul feast on the lively atmosphere comprised of cheap eats, neon lights, red lanterns and huge crowds.
