    Stroll through Chinatown and...

    Stroll through Chinatown and shop for silk and other fabrics in Pahurat, the indian district.
    Chinatown is what chinatown should be: chinese markets, restaurants and gold shops.

    In a corner of Chinatown you can find Pahurat. This is a wonderful place to shop for thai-silk and other fabrics.

    The first time i visited me and my friend (which have good knowledge about qualities) bought more than 60 m. of fabrics while visiting Bangkok! Most of it I haven't gotten around to use of course, but whenever I need a neew evening gown or silk pillows I sure have a lot of colors to choos from ;o)

    If you think that stuffs in bangkok are cheap, here you will see things that you can imagine how they can sell that for that price.
    ITS INCREDIBLE!!!
    While there, try some baked nuts.

    Funny hustle and bustle

    by Robert_Hun Written Jan 30, 2005

    Well, exactly how you imagine a Chinatown anywhere else in the world.
    Many small shops, narrow streets, vivid, crowded (maybe a bit chaotic), colors, lights and, of course, great food.

    Durian is very popular with local people. Some people say about it: 'Smells like hell, tastes like heaven'. The smell is really disgusting, and to my mind, the taste is not better :)

    This area near Hualamphong Station is very interesting if you like old asian markets, chinese medicine shops, traditional chinese restaurants and so.
    The old market is in Talat Kao.

    Many Chinese people live in Bangkok. It is a very special experience to explore the narrow streets of china town, with their many jewellers and pharmacies with Chinese medicin.
