Chinatown Tips (84)

China Gate - Chinatown

The China Gate is located in the middle of Odeon Circle and marks the south entrance of the Chinatown District. There is an alter at the gate and people come to make offerings especially during Chinese New Year. The gate was constructed in 1999 to commemorate the King's 72nd birthday. Not worth making a special trip to see but notable if you are in the area. It is situated in front of Wat Traimit.

Chinatown

Chinatown in New York. Chinatown in Washington. Chinatown in
San Francisco. Chinatown in Montreal. Chinatown in... Chinatown in Bangkok? I skip. I prefer "Bangkoktown", and to plan Chinatown in... China.

Chinatown in Shanghai! I knew it!
That's the finest, wonderful Chinatown.

Chinatown markets.

If you enjoy rubbing shoulders with the locals you have to do this on a Sunday morning. Literally thousands of people out buying this and that or just plain wandering as we were. But beware, much of the stuff is Chinese plastic and falls apart in 10 minutes (We had the case with a hat for my wife, admittedly only 150 THB, and managed to get just round the corner before the stitching let go. Went back and they changed it, no problem). The place is so full of life though it was amazing that when we came back from the pier after 13h00, everything was shut and closed up. Even the Yaowarat road was empty and nobody about !!!

Located near the Grand Palace

although Thailand has the largest number of people of Chinese ancestry, about 16 to 20% of Thailand have chinese ancestry and the chinese, which arrived in great numbers from Guangong Province in Southern China (where Hong Kong and Macau is situated) in the 17th century, established bangkok's chinatown here in Yaowarat area, the chinatown here is relatively small as compared to chinatowns of other asian countries, as again, the chinese in thailand are the most assimililated chinese in Asia, as even the competing Politicians, Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra and opposition Abhisit Vejajiva have chinese ancestry. being said that, Chinatown in Bangkok is smaller and if you are used to going to other chinatowns in other countries, this chinatown is typical of what you see in other areas, and is quite small.

China Town..Huge shopping area..

China Town in Bangkok is easily reached by skytrain and then taxi if you are in the Sukhumvit area. Found the place to be huge with many many shops including gold shops. Full of Chinese restaurants that serves shark's fin which is a Chinese specialty. Gets really hot and humid and crowded during the day. A lot of lovely things to buy in the area.

China Town

We got to Bangkok's China Town by taking the public Chao Phraya River boat to Rachawongsee Peir. China town was beautifully decorated with red lanterns. I am not sure if this is normal or if it was just in place for Chinese New Year. The streets were busy with stalls selling goods, food stalls and restaurants. There was an interesting temple, too. Worth a look around for the crowds, the colour, the shopping, the food.
