    Tourdescription About the audio tour

    Chinatown is one of Bangkok's busiest, most interesting (and most neon-y) areas, and is known primarily for two things: gold shops and food. Since we're not here to buy gold, the food will have to do. We'll take a walk up one side of Yaowarat Road and back down the other, sampling seafood, juice, noodles, chestnuts, and a wide variety of other nibbles, depending on how hungry (or adventurous) you are. Along the way you can pop your head into a decrepit-yet-still-functioning movie theater, take some pictures of a few impressively skilled streetside chefs, and see where a Chinese revolution got a little help from sympathetic Chinese-Thais.

    Startingpoint Directions to starting point

    Take the subway (MRT) to Hualumphong Station, and come up to ground level at exit #1. We'll start there.

    Tips Tips

    Places to stop along the way:

    Hard to pinpoint, as only a select few few food stalls are permanent fixtures. It's very much up to you - there are so many options that the best advice is to sample anything you find vaguely interesting. Don't be shy!

    Best time to walk:

    Chinatown is at its best at night, so anytime after 7pm will be fine.

    Precautions:

    Watch out for cars and motorcycles, as Chinatown's streets are narrow and crowded.
