Bangkok’s Chinatown

Bangkok’s Chinatown or Yaowarat is one of the worth visiting areas in Bangkok. It is a place of Thai-Chinese community. If you go there during the day, I recommend you to visit temples and markets. But if you go there at night, I recommend you to try street food. You can see more detail here.
