Bangkok Wat Traimit

The Chinatown in Bangkok is the world’s largest and one of the most interesting Chinatowns in the country can be found here as well. Bangkok’s Chinatown is filled with delightful experiences and is quite unlike anything you would have ever experienced.

The history of Chinatown

In the past, starvation in southern China forced many people to flee to Southeast Asia, and Thailand appeared to be a favoured destination for these Chinese immigrants. They first opened their shop in the vicinity of the Grand Palace.

The food that awaits

Bangkok’s Chinatown is a must-visit for seafood lovers. The tastiest food in Bangkok can be found on Yaowarat Road after the sun sets. If a swarm of Thais have gathered around a certain food stall, it’s probably because the fare is so good.

The Temples of Bangkok

There are two temples in Bangkok’s Chinatown: Wat Traimit and Wat Mangkon Kamalawat. The world’s largest gold statue is housed in Wat Traimit, popularly known as the Temple of the Golden Buddha.

Exhausted travellers, generally at this point look up hotel brands nearby such as the Minor Hotels to rest and recuperate before the next leg of their journey.

Time for some boozing

There are plenty of wonderful views to be found in this area. Hotels, restaurants, and bars around the Chao Phraya River all offer stunning views of the waterway. Guests may enjoy live music every night at the restaurant, which features a stunning perspective of both the city.
