Bangkok Chinatown food fiesta

Travel back through time at the old world markets of Yaowarat, in the heart of Bangkok's vibrant Chinatown, beginning at Ratchawong Pier. Learn about the original Chinese citizens who lived here as traders in the village of Bangkok, before it became the capital of the Kingdom of Siam. Amble along Song Wat Road, bordered by historic business buildings and warehouses. Emerge onto Yaowa Phanit Road, an important plastic and leather production quarter, and onto the end of Chinatown to encounter the beautiful Wat Traimit Temple. This stunning work of architecture enshrines the world's largest golden, seated Buddha. Built during the Sukhothai Era it is almost five metres tall and weighs a hefty five and a half tonnes! The temple also houses the Chinese Museum displaying the fascinating history of the Chinese people in Thailand. Treat yourself to a tasty snack in a 100-year-old coffee shop on Phat Sai Road, where you can drink-in both the delicious coffee and the relaxed, charming atmosphere. Thoroughly refreshed, we continue to Issarnuparb Road to a market specialising in Chinese religious products, fresh produce and seafood. As dusk settles in, Yaowaraj Road transforms into a sea of street stalls, collectively becoming one large food bazaar with everything from street grills to five start restaurants. Take a seat next to your guide to sample charcoal-grilled seafood direct from a street vendor. Stroll on to the Saphan Put Night Market, home to a vast array of clothes, shoes, bags, accessories and antiques. Round off your night at Talat Pak Khlong, Bangkok's largest wholesale flower and vegetable market that comes alive at night as the street is covered with a colourful flower display, a bright and cheerful end to your day.
