Chinatown Tips (4)

Chinese New Year

Favorite thing Chinese New Year festivities are always grand in Thailand and Bangkok's Chinatown comes to life during Chinese New Year which fall in January every year .With as much as 14% of Thailand's population claming Chinese ancestry,this celebration is big news!* Yaowarat road is closed off and becomes a visual sea of red,gold ,decorated with electric laterns and long pink,purple,yellow paper of matching colour.A splended Golden Dragon sits near the main gate as people flock inside the Chinese temple to pay respect,watch Lion dance and enjoy the wonderful food.

Fondest memory Chines Dragon & Lion Dance.

China Town

Favorite thing China Town is a great place to visit while in Bangkok...there are heaps of markets and restaurants through the streets. We stopped off and had dinner in China Town one night and we were glad we did...the food was great and there weren't many tourists at the restaurant we chose... :)

If you are staying in Chinatown

Favorite thing If you are staying in Chinatown, be aware of the difficulties getting back to this area on Saturday evenings - when it is at its busiest. I was rejected by many taxis and tuktuks to get back to my hotel from Chatuchak markets - and didn't know why. Even Bangkok drivers prefer to keep away from there at this time! So - either get home early - or stay out late - or train it back to Hualamphong Stn, and walk!
