Bangkok Chinatown



February 2015 - Bangkok Thailand
I thought I had posted about Chinatown in Bangkok...
It is truly a cacophony of sights and sounds. Absolutely packed with cars vying with pedestrians for space. 









Countless street vendors set up shop in between small markets and higher-end restaurants. Little plastic stools and folding tables spill out unto the sidewalks.






Food is everywhere!















After a light dinner time to head back.


Our ride back by tuk tuk.

  1. What catches my eye are the rich reds, particularly the banners.

  2. When I see congestion like this everywhere I wonder how do they ever get anywhere to get any thing done?

  3. I see large farang bums on small Thai stools.

  4. Guess it is all a matter of when you go and your mindset. We visited Bangkok's Chinatown in April on a hot, sweltering day - mid-morning and after nearly being trampled by delivery carts - or run over by cars avoiding those carts - we spent an hour or so and said, "Been there, done that" and left. Glad to see your beautiful shots of the evening scenese.

    1. I had read about how crowded it gets during the day with all the delivery carts and people shopping. It was fun at night but the traffic was still a challenge.

  5. I went to Chinatown in Bangkok during the day. It was nice but there was not a lot of actions. Seems like all the action occurs at night. I would like to go back.

  10. What a great trip that must have been! I love cities, but this is a bit crowded for me. I'm going to NYC in November and am mentally preparing myself for all the people, traffic and buildings.

  11. I can almost hear the cacophony of the traffic and people and smell all that food cooking when I look at your photos. I like how they left the leaves on the trimmed pineapple and prepped the pomegranate so nicely.
