Yaowarat - China Town Bangkok

Yaowarat Road, the heart of Chinatown in Bangkok, is said to have been built during the reign of King Rama V in 1782 with the purpose of establishing the capital city on the eastern side of the Chao Phrya River.

The mostly Chinese immigrants who were originally settled in the area which is now the Grand Palace had to vacate and relocate to a strip of land two kilometres down the river.

For anyone wanting to immerse themselves in Chinese culture, Chinatown is a must.

Since that time, the area has expanded with fresh immigrants, mostly from China, and Chinatown now includes an area which is bounded by Phadung Krung Kasem Canal to the East, the Ong Ang Canal to the west, Liang Road to the north, and the Chao Phraya River to the south.

The area is of about two square kilometres.

The crowded street curves and snakes through the jostling heart of Chinatown, rather like the famous Chinese mythical dragon enshrined at the Odean Gate, the auspicious, bright and colourful entrance to Chinatown.
