Travelodge Sukhumvit 11
Bangkok’s Chinatown is commonly known as Yaowarat. It has two completely contrasting faces in the day and by night. If you visit Yaowarat during the day, you will see shops selling gold, Chinese herbs, fruits and Chinese restaurants serving authentic cuisine. Visit Yaowarat after sunset and you will see the road turn into a street food heaven where a number of food trucks serve marvellous dishes that are difficult to find elsewhere, from steaming Chinese fried noodles to refreshing Chinese iced desserts.
The energy that oozes from its endless rows of wooden shophouses is simply contagious – you will want to keep coming back for more. Plan your visit during major festivals, like Chinese New Year, and you will see Bangkok Chinatown at its best.
