Bangkok Chinatown (Yaowarat)

Thanon Yaowarat, Samphanthawong, Bangkok

The Basics

Bangkok Chinatown envelops the streets and alleys branching off Yaowarat Road, its main thoroughfare. Since the area transforms into a food street after dark, many visitors choose to explore it on a walking food tour. Those more interested in the history and heritage of Bangkok’s Chinese immigrants can opt for a daytime biking tour or walking tour to visit the area’s Buddhist temples and neighborhood markets.

Awesome tour
We loved this tuk tuk tour of Bangkok sites, food and markets. Our guide was amazing and very knowledgeable and informative. We also had the smiliest and best tuk tuk driver in Bangkok. Our guide provided us with so much history and architecture information. He encouraged us to try a range of local foods which were really good. The sites we visited were beautiful and we loved the flower market and China town. Highly recommend this tour company and tuk tuk tour.

Tuk-tuk tour Bangkok by Night with Chinatown meal
Most memorable is certainly the tuktuk rides and ricer ferry. You get to enjoy the sceneries while enjoying the fast driving skills of local drivers hahaha. Lotus folding is a new skill I learned. The Chinatown meal of barbecues and desserts in a crowded smokey place makes you feel like a local. Ms Bell take good pics too! We had a wonderful time. Surely recommended!

Tuk-tuk tour Bangkok by Night with Chinatown meal
Kind, friendly and lovely guide provided a wonderful time which ticked off many of my must-see and do while in Thailand. Sorry I can’t recall her name, maybe Poi. Definitely started with a ‘p’. Evening photo op at Wat Arun—this is a must do even if visited during the day, floral market with a quick (literally 2minutes) lotus floral design tutorial in the street, China town visit along with a street meal and fun tuk tuk rides along the way.

Our tour guide, Ms. Wan, was very considerate and informative. The tour was on schedule except for the dinner part which had a long wait time. All in all, it was a good experience to have.

Golf was a great host and knowledgeable about the city of Bangkok. The whole evening will be remembered for quite sometime by me, my wife, and our four kids (ages 7-15)!

Tuk-tuk tour Bangkok by Night with Chinatown meal
Visiting China town was very interesting. We tasted some unusual food and took some great pictures. Visiting flower market was great, and we learned how to fold lotus petals. The guide did her best to introduce us to the night Bangkok. She proved very helpful when we needed her assistance getting a cab.
