CHI­NA­TOWN

Business Traveller (Asia-Pacific) - - HIT LIST -

One of Bangkok’s most vi­brant dis­tricts fo­cuses on Chi­nese rather than Thai cul­ture. The main streets of Charoen Krung Road and Yaowarat Road, and their myr­iad side streets, are filled with gold shops in her­itage shop­house build­ings, Chi­nese-Bud­dhist tem­ples (check out the or­nate Wat Mangkon Ka­malawat), tasty seafood restau­rants and street­side mar­ket stalls. It’s chaotic and of­ten over­crowded, but the food and shop­ping op­tions are end­less and the en­ergy is con­ta­gious. Ac­cess by Chao Phraya river­boat pier Ratcha­wong (N5).
