A Visit To Bangkok's China Town

One of the places that we've explored while we were at Bangkok is the China Town.  I guess China Town is so famous that almost every country has it.  We had also visited one in Vietnam when we had our vacation at Saigon but the one in Bangkok interests me most.

China Town is just around 15 to 20 mins "tuk-tuk" ride from our hotel at Petchburi Road and in fact we have visited this place twice during our stay at Bangkok.  My kids were just fascinated with all the products being sold there as well as the festive atmosphere of the place.  Just like the other China Towns, it's crowded and full of shoppers especially during the late morning where everyone is rushing.

And of course, who wouldn't be lured to try their street foods.  You might be surprised but it's yummy! :)

If you are a fan of shopping malls, then this place is not for you.  It's hot there, crowded and you will just feel a little bit uncomfortable when going around.  But this is a good place if you want to stretch out your shopping budget as you can find a lot of nice stuff here at affordable prices. Packed with market stalls, street-side restaurants and a vast number of gold shops, China Town will surely be an experience not to miss.

So if you are a bit boring on the usual stuff you see at the malls within the heart of Bangkok , then China Town could be a good alternative.
