My first afternoon in Bangkok I wandered around the back streets of Chinatown. Here Bangkok looks much as it did 100 years ago. Markets abound in the side streets and alleyways in between and around the two main parallel boulevards of Yaowarat and Charoen Krung. In Chinatown you’ll find everything from herbalists and gold dealers to restaurants serving specialties such as bird’s nest and shark fin soup.
Meet some of vendors of Chinatown in my photos below. See the complete set of Bankok Chinatown photos in my Flickr album.

Wicked photos. All of them shows very unique characters of Chinatown and their products. Especially the man in the main photo, he seems like he knows that he is ‘cool’ and he really is! Nice capture.
Great pictures! These vendors seem much more chill that vendors I’ve run into…
Hmmm, perhaps Suzanne and I need to start booking travel and stat!
@Michael Yes I would recommend either Thailand or Malaysia to you and Suzanne for both excellent food and beaches. Or even Hong Kong or Singapore for urban destinations with great food.
