A walk through Bangkok’s Chinatown, and some of the city’s many markets, provides a fascinating glimpse into Thailand’s Chinese heritage. In Chinatown, we’ll visit streets lined with wooden shop houses and packed with market stalls, restaurants and gold shops. We’ll pass beautiful Chinese temples, Taoist places of learning, and traditional medicine shops on the streets off Yaowarat Road. Here, you’ll be able to explore the labyrinth of vendors and find virtually anything for sale, from tea sets to food. We’ll then head to the Thieves Market, given its name for the type of goods sold there in the past. Now, you’ll find old furniture, brassware and imitation antiques. Finally, we’ll head to Pahurat Market to peruse the small alleyways selling textiles, toys, household items, and herbs.
