Yaowarat Bangkok Thailand 1/2 by Tripoto

Yaowarat Bangkok Thailand

Swai Hapoo
With grandeur opening up to Bangkok's Chinatown, are the ceremonial Chinese Gate. It runs all along from Odeon Circle to Yaowarat, marking the erstwhile settled Chinese community since 1783. While the entire city is an epitome of urban skylines, this part of the city still retains its undeveloped yet striking traditional settlement, making it one of the major tourist attractions in the city. While Tang To Gung gold shop on Sampeng Lane, around Mangkon Road gives you a fine example of architecture in Bangkok from its early years, the main arteries of Chinatown are unmistakably Thanon Yaowarat and Thanon Charoen Krung, where the food and shopping arenas create a much required touristy buzz.
