Yaowarat Road in Samphanthawong District is the main artery of Bangkok‘s Chinatown. Modern Chinatown now covers a large area around Yaowarat and Charoen Krung Road. At night, Yaowarat Road – the high street of Bangkok’s Chinatown – transforms into one of the largest street food spots in the world.
Locals and travellers can be seen along the main thoroughfare, sampling their way through all that there is to offer, turning dinner into an evening of exploration. It can be confusing at first but, with a sense of adventure, it can be a lot of fun.
Popular offerings include dim sum, oyster omelettes, flat noodles in a pepper broth, and lots of fresh seafood. There are also many exotic fruits on offer, as well as homemade ice cream (we love coconut, but for something truly Thai, go for durian). Traffic is very congested in this area, so we recommend taking the MRT to Wat Mangkon MRT Station and walk for about 5 minutes to Yaowarat Road.
