There are many things to see and do in Chinatown Bangkok, as over 14% of the buildings in the district are designated as historical landmarks. This bustling part of Bangkok has many fine examples of architecture dating back to the city's early years.

One of the best times to check out this fascinating area of Bangkok is during a traditional Chinese festival – the biggest of them all is the Chinese New Year. However, you can check out Chinatown’s many temples, street markets, and historical buildings year-round. Thanon Yaowarat and Thanon Charoen Krung are the area’s main arteries, where you can wander along packed alleys that leave you feeling like you have been transported back in time.
