Bangkok China Town – The hustle & bustle of China Town makes for an entertaining evening, with plenty of street food kiosks plying their trade along the main street. An endless stream of heaving foot traffic effortlessly merges along the road. Walking in between the seller’s stalls, tables and chairs that spill over into the road is an art. It all ends up as looking like a massive street party. Working out what and who belongs to what street food kiosk is a game played by all. Somehow it all works out for an entertaining evening.
The food is varied from fried dumplings to noodles-a-plenty, there is something to savior for all discerning palates. At less than 50 Baht per dish, It’s easy on the pocket for an evening out. The drinks are also reasonable priced.
From the Khao San road it’s less than 150 baht in a taxi, or a 30 minute walk. Watch out for tuk tuks who will want to charge you the earth. They wanted 200-300 baht for the short 10 minute ride from Khao San.
It’s quite an experience especially with the amount of people who flock here every night. It’s definately worth a visit to take in the sights, sounds and smells from the various food outlets.
As it’s a crowded place with lots of hustle & bustle, just ensure that your wallet and bags are secure and tucked into a front pocket, as these places brings with it the type of people that like to take your stuff.
