With so much on offer, this action packed walking tour of Bangkok’s Chinatown will have you experiencing the ‘real’ parts of this region that many often miss. Starting at Ratchawong Pier, we wander through the old markets at Yaowarat, with your guide giving you the history of this interesting area. On the walk to Wat Traimit Temple, we’ll pass through traditional businesses and the people of Chinatown going about their daily routine. The temple itself is full of history and mystery, as well as the world’s largest seated golden Buddha.
With the rich history of Chinatown taken care off, it is time to get down to the business of eating. Prepare yourself with a coffee at a 100-year old coffee shop on Phat Sai Road, then hit the nearby market and food stalls with energy. As with every Chinatown across the world’s cities, this part of Bangkok brings the flavours of China and blends them with the amazing Thai food taste, with the result a unique and simply delicious array of food choices.
Just when you thought you had seen it all, the Chinatown walking tour moves on to yet more markets, this time stopping by Saphan Phut night market for plenty of clothes and other items. Finally this amazing walking tour finished off at the Talat Pak Khlong market, full of fresh produce and plenty of beautiful flowers. What a colourful way to say goodnight to the bold and bustling Chinatown district of Bangkok
